Took a second day off in a row yesterday, Saturday’s half marathon race having done a number on the legs, only a week to recover before another race this weekend, this 48 year oin my own bedld body requires more time for repairs and tune-up than it used to.
Feeling good enough for a workout, did a set of intervals on the trails in the park:
6 x 600 meters (approx.) w/ a jog rest back to the start. Splits were 2:05, 2:00, 1:57, 1:53, 1:51, 1:54. Heart was beating pretty good on this summer like sunny 70+ day.2 mile warm up, 6 mile cool down, 11 miles altogether.
Got confirmation that I’ll be getting ‘elite’ (masters) status at the Buffalo Half Marathon at the end of May. It’s nice that it’ll be in my hometown race. Was offered hotel accommodations, but I declined in favor of sleeping in my own bed. The free entry will be nice. My initial status was ‘spam’, though, as my early correspondence with the race administrator had mistakenly been placed in his spam file.
