Speaking of sickness......
Last Wednesday when I went on my cooking spree I WAS indeed sick, just sick with exploding stomach issues. GET IT? ANY QUESTIONS? I can cook, just not eat, right?
Then Thurs I felt a little funny (I could feel a cold coming on). Friday I felt a little worse, Saturday EVEN worse (my nose was a faucet), Sunday I wanted to die (my chest was tight and my nose was still a faucet)...but! I still got in a great benchmark run for the weekend! I ran 13.14 miles in 1:45:00 for an 8:00 pace. I was told to stay within a 145-155 bpm HR range, and I did just that with HR alarms galore. Yes, I was THAT annoying guy out on the running trails. I'd say it worked because I had a perfectly negative split run:
I felt "in control" the entire time and I am pretty confident that my current "official" 2 year old half marathon PR time of a 1:45:04 is going down, considering I just broke it (unofficially) 5 weeks out from the National Half without really pushing it too too hard. I mean, my legs were hurting by the end, but when I race this puppy in March, my legs are REALLY going to hurt!
And speaking of races! I signed up for the NYRR Scotland Run 10K on April 7th in Central Park. THIS WILL BE MY ATTEMPT AT A SUB 40 MINUTE 10K!!!!
Good golly the training leading up to this is going to hurt....
AND! Speaking of Zombies! Guess what is back on the air? THE WALKING DEAD!!!! I can't wait to watch this on the trainer tonight!
P.S. Happy Valentines Day!!!
