Saturday Long Run - 19 Miles @ 03:18:00
Was definitely whooped on Sunday and very sore. Was happy to support Beth as she ran the half and, took a nap and went to my favorite yoga class.
This morning, I went for a run from home and around Greenlake. I definitely felt better but was surprised (and disappointed) that my pace was still slightly over 10.

Maybe I will find my love for swimming in Maui again.
Did make it to spin class and because I had been cleared by the doctor, I went for it taking my HR up whenever prompted! Perhaps I should have been more precise when asking what I was cleared to do... my nose bled a bit after but not too badly.

6.2 Mile Run @ 00:57:30
Also met with Cheryl to discuss my next goal - Comrades Ultra-Marathon 2012. Between now and then, I will run @ three 50k's and one 50 miler as well as complete one 1/2 Ironman this summer to get in the cross training.
I get to take it a bit easy for now and the general guidelines are:
- Run 3x per week
- Bike 1x-2x per week
- Swim 1x-2x per week
- Yoga - as much as I can :)

I have a follow up appointment with my Dr. today and will see if there is any chance I can be cleared for running/yoga any earlier than the 14 day sentence he imposed. Probably not but it never hurts to ask...
3 Mile Walk @ 00:45:00

last few weeks of traveling, being sick and some other crap, I was not
feeling super strong going to the start line.
Speaking of the start line, it would have been useful to have actually
read through the race information to prevent wandering around in the
dark and rain trying to figure out where to go. I ended up starting
with group E, and was supposed to start with group A.
Fortunately it was all chip timed so I was fine - just had a lot of
passing to do the first few miles. All in all it was a good race -
enthusiastically supported, scenic with a few more hills than I
anticipated. I just worked to maintain an 8:40 pace and would
sometimes beat that depending on how many race skirts were ahead of
me...my motto was "so many race skirts, so few miles to pass them
My splits were; 8:27, 8:49, 8:45, 7:52, 8:06, 16:45 (missed the mile
marker), 8:45, 8:33, 8:26, 8:25, 9:07, 8:32, 9:12, 8:10, 8:43, 10:21,
8:35, 7:48: 10:07, 9:04, 8:33, 9:08, 8:57, 9:07, 9:00, 2:07.
My watch has me at a 3:49:16 finish - enough to qualify me...barely
but today I will take it.
