I did it! For once, life's obligations and nuances did not get in the way and I actually completed one of Nancy's Virtual Races. Yippee!!
My sitter came over this morning and I headed out on my weekly trail run. It was humid - 47% and relatively warm (though not as much as it has been earlier this summer) - 75 degrees.
I started the run with the intention of taking it easy... I've been pretty fatigued this week following the 30K on Saturday. Circumstances prevented me from swimming on Tues and Thrs both, so I have just not been up to par this week. My muscles are tight and my right heel has been hinting that trouble may be coming, reminding me to take it easy.
At the 4.5 mile mark, I stopped at the park for water... I then proceeded home. I returned to my cheer squad and the finish in 1:21:27 ... an average 10:10 min per mile. Certainly not my best performance but acceptable.We are looking forward to watching the Olympics this year. I am most looking forward to the running and swimming events, naturally. Go USA! :D
