Quick run from home up to the beginning of the bike path at the duck pond. (Yes, I came back up the hill to the finish.) 32:44. Google tells me it’s 3.1, so a 5k. 10:33. Blech.
First off, here’s the link to my fundraising page for this event: Crowdrise/watchricktrain is where I’ll be posting all the events between now and the Ironman in November.
Since the Tough Mudder course is about 10 miles, plus up and down the hills, I have eased off on the swimming and focused more on running and good old pushups the last two weeks.
I ran 15.4 yesterday in about 2:20. That was a pretty slow 9 min pace, and I’ve got to see if my iphone app will give me better splits. I think I was at 7 min through the first 5 or s0, and at 8 through the turnaround. But I have to see. I guess maybe there’s a good reason to do a running/biking GPS app shoot-out!
My knees are a little creaky today going down steps, and I realized that this might be why the run is at the end of the triathlon rather than the beginning. Wise choice!
This was a quick workout on 1/16.
Mostly @ 8.5 mph, little cooldown at 2.5, then last .1 @ 10 mph.
Have to recharge my shuffle.
