Been off the grid for a couple days, a busy few days and last nights mile race, about which I’m very happy: 4:49, 12th overall, age grade of 87.35%. Took the couple days prior to it very easy as the legs were sore from the previous week’s miles.
Turned 49 that week, and the legs let me know.
This year’s Mile was the most competitive in years, more prize $ encouraging more young runners to enter, first time in couple of years I didn’t crack the top 10. Still thrilled with 4:49, especially after last week’s so-so run on the track.
About 4 miles total yesterday/a sultry 12 miles in the park today, it’ll be getting hot again for the next week.
Continuing on, staying race-ready. Probably a night 5k next week. Long term: some half-marathons in the fall and thinking of a marathon in the spring.
Good Friday nite!
