that was a long, painful run.  Experimented with a 28:2 ratio.  Was able to maintain that through 2:30.  After that I also walked the hills.  I think that i am not ready for that yet.  Will probably keep that going for portions of the long runs going forward until I can maintain that without so much degradation.

White Lake Int'l is out. Kids have soccer tourneys that were not on the schedule. Have to find something else soon.

B/c it's nasty out, prob just going to do another Sufferfest. I just picked up 9 Hammers, so will prob just do that today sometime. Looks like a beast of a workout.

IT band update: no pain at all during the race. Must be a bike fit issue.
I did get a post-race massage!

Where did my motivation go?  My bike buddy is competing a 70.3 today, so I am not feeling a solo ride... still working on my project (my first T-shirt quilt as a retirement gift for someone at school), so once I get started on that and doing laundry, anything outside is not gonna happen!  Chance of rain later on anyways... I will get back at it tomorrow for sure.

So glad I got a ride in yesterday, even if it was short and easy. It's pouring rain/sleeting, and we're supposed to get a couple of inches of rain by tomorrow evening. Blech.
Happy for my friends who raced yesterday - one took 1st in her age group. one took 2nd, and the other DNF'd but because she stopped to help someone who was injured. Looking at the results, there were only 4 in my division, and I think I could have been close to 2nd. Bummed I didn't get to get out there and try! :( Oh well, there's another in two weeks. Hopefully I can be all prepared for that one!

Good to be out in the heat, but it sure slowed me down!

Foot is sore, knot is back :(. I really thought the ART and the new Birkenstock orthotics had this foot issue under control. Apparently not. How am I ever going to get back to running? Taping maybe? Feeling a bit hopeless. I mean my "running" yesterday was barely a shuffle. Maybe it just needs more time? I don't know. I had that tendonitis issue for 2 years and finally found a solution. I will find one for this too.
Mickey is not perfect but he sure is pretty :). And he sits still for a picture a lot better than my kids!

Well, that was a challenging day. I don't have my times yet, but I won my age group for the mini. Not sure about the sprint. We had rain, cold weather and high winds, ugh. Will post more when I have times.

'Pull' Drill - Focus will be on learning to 'catch' the water with your forearm and pull yourself through the water. If you feel your lats (the muscles under your arm pits that go down the side of your back) engage, then you are starting to get it. If your shoulders are tired, then you are still using too much shoulder and not enough lats.

Full stretch and myofascial release.
