The name of the game is keeping everything in the bank and just staying loose.

With these instructions in mind, I didn't push it at all during this swim.

Early morning walk with Emma.

It's getting close now!


I'm not loving the current forecast but (1) it's only Monday and (2) I ran my first half marathon in sleet and freezing rain.  It will not be sleet and freezing rain on Saturday!

Beaver Creek-Martha's Chapel-Davis

Run
  • 32m
  • 3.44 miles
  • 09m 18s /Mi

My Garmin locked up 20 seconds into the run. It vibrated like it had found the foot pod but I looked down about a quarter mile into the run and it said 20 seconds. I looked down a little bit later and it still said 20 seconds. I ran the same route off the bike that I did on Wednesday so I am just repeating the data here and rounding up a little.


I didn't know how to do a soft reset on the Forerunner 310xt. (hold lap and mode at the same time for 7 seconds and then release). That did the trick. Forerunner seems happy now

Random thoughts:

Any IM or HIM that takes place later than Novermber 1 is going to be tough.  I am so glad that I have been able to get all of my weeknight rides/runs in outside.  Light is becoming and issue.  IM Coz has been on my list (dolphins!) but maybe not so much now.

I am glad that I am not relying on liquid nutrition.  It's been cool enough that I am not wanting/needing to drink much.  I think that liquid nutrition might work better for races done in the summer.  Just guessing though since the gatstro doc told me to keep away from gatorade, all sports drinks, etc. a few years ago.  Granted, that my have been related to recovery from surgery but I have been steering clear of it since then and what I am doing seems to be working so...
