The question is: will this make me faster?

Due to Tuesday's results, I decided to push it hard for a 10K today. I was really getting after it, and the results bore that out. I hadn't broken 44 for a 10K yet, and today I broke 43. I was running hard enough for the last 1.5 miles that I had a negative split: 21:36 and 21:02. Boy, was I spent when I was done, but that's OK. Another perfect day for a run - 55 degrees and light wind at 6:15 AM when I started.

Finshed mowing the frontyard this morning.

I tried swapping out my uncomfortable seat for my comfy seat to see if that made the ride more pleasant. It didn't. I think it's just the posture of the bike. I switched the seat back after I was done. I was originally going to try to do about 35 miles today, but it was a struggle just to get to 24.8. Note to self for the future: I'm not sure that I had the seat positioned optimally. If I try this again, I need to lower the seat more, and slide it back farther. Perhaps this would make a difference.

Mowed the backyard today. Frontyard will have to wait until tomorrow, as it is getting dark earlier. That is the part of fall that I don't like so much.

Another great morning for a run - 55 degrees, light wind. I was pushing pretty hard today, but still under control. I didn't feel too tired at the end. This is the longest I've run at sub-7-minute pace, probably ever.

Another great morning for a run. It was about 58 degrees and calm at 6:30. I'm very happy with this pace, and I think I'll probably be able to do the 1/2 marathon at this pace as long as I continue to build in the next month.

Well, I beat my PR by 4 seconds. It was a great morning for a ride. In fact, it was actually a little chilly when I started out at 6:30. But once the sun came up, it warmed up just enough to be perfect temperature (60-65 or so). I was considering going longer, but I'm having a hard time convincing myself to ride longer than the 40K of the Olympic distance tri. I suppose going longer will help build my biking endurance, and make the 40K seem easier. I should probably do a 30-40 mile ride at least once a month. Maybe I'll get into that sometime. One other comment: with today's ride, I crossed the 1000 mile barrier on my bike training so far this year. I thought that was pretty cool. 1000 miles is a long way. I hope to do a 9-mile run tomorrow. I hope I didn't wear out my legs too much today.

Friday - September 7

I thought about running today, but I took the day off after running the previous 2 days. I plan to do a long ride tomorrow, and a long run on Sunday.
