No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Well, it was one of "learned something new today" type of races. Let me share, bullet point sty-lah!
Besides this greatly beneficial learning experience, the race was pretty awesome. The runners were mostly from three running clubs and they were all wearing matching shirts, so I kind of stood out in mine... My mom and I ended up taking a picture with the Mariachis! He let me hold his guitar, :]
That's the Mexican soccer team shirt... I think. I was told. Who cares, it was green and it had pretty cool red detailing. You can't see it, but it says MEXICO on the bottom part on the back of the shirt. Look at my mom striking a pose! LOL, she was so happy for me, she said she couldn't believe the things I did (racing, training, etc.).
Aaaanyway, recap. I finished at 32:48, :| I guess I can blame it on the lack of music, or the lack of heart rate monitoring, or just being tired from the 5 miler two days before... I guess. I'm a little upset b/c I was hoping to beat my last 5K time of 31:57. I guess I could continue being upset but I'm just REALLY tired! I've ran 14.69 miles in 2:41:37 hours. I don't have much energy left to bitch. Ok, just a little. That's the most miles I've done in a very VERY long time.
This week has been good for training, the weather has been way nicer than normal. I'm going to start waking up before 7 to be at the park running by 7:30 and be back at home by 8:45. Ah, I feel ready for next weekend's race!!
