Not much to say about the race. I think I went out a little hard but running has been challenging lately because I was off for 3 months and I am still trying to get my run back to where it should be.. so I attempted to race at where I know I am capable of running and then couldn't quite do it because I'm not that fit right now. So I went out too hard and then just slowly died (except for the last mile) and the race ended up hurting pretty bad.
My chip time was 37:07 with a pace of 7:25 min/mile. This is WAY suckier than last year where I had a chip time of 36:11. Seriously? A minute slower??? WTF. I am annoyed.
Then I had to do a 5 mile run which was absolutely torture for my legs. I ran with Karin and Chris and thank god they were there to talk to because otherwise I don't think I would have lasted for the entire thing.
After the race I scooted home, changed, and then headed down to
I said f-you to the lost hour of sleep and rode 3.5 hours with Kim which was not my best ride ever. I was super grumpy all day because this week I am on overnights and that just destroys my Sundays and any positive attitude that I might have had. After riding I forced myself to run for 30 minutes even though my legs were still wrecked. I was finally done with my workouts at 3 pm which gave me a few hours hang out with my cat before trying (and failing) to nap before work.
