Wow! Nice one! You did great even with all those little irritations. I think that's one of the real challenges of racing, how to handle the stuff that comes at you out of nowhere, and you really worked it! I am so so so so so proud of you and happy for you!

Thanks!

I agree with you though. During training you can control so much more. During the actual race so many extraneous variables come up and you have to be able to just make a decision and deal with them. The research geek in me wants to liken this to internal/external validity...*cough*nerd*cough*

yeah some people use it on their feet so they don't have to take the time to put socks on. I ran without socks this last tri because they were soaked so no point in trying to get them on but normally I used socks.

Tuesday, August 17th

5 mile run (46:45)

Run this morning felt really good. First half I averaged 9:41/mile and second half was 9:00/mile.

Never thought that a 5 mile run would feel short and quick...Not that many months ago this is what my long run was at.

Calves still tight from my race on Sunday...will try and stretch them out tonight.

Thanks! No kidding, the human body is really amazing when you stop to think about how adaptable we are.

Thanks guys!

Viva - Usually no. Sometimes I take my ipod on my long runs that are over 2 hours. But I need to get some new music or something as I have gotten sick of my playlists.

I honestly don't notice much of a difference in my pace with music vs. no music. The only factor is boredom, and that's not even that big of a deal for me. Usually I just end up thinking and problem solving.

Thursday, August 19th:
1 mile warmup: 10:38
3 mile TT: 24:45 (!!!!)
1 mile cooldown: 10:00

I got so excited at 3 miles I forgot to keep going until 3.1 miles so it would be 5K and I could see if I met my time goal of less than 25:00. I averaged 8:15/mile and was really speedy at the end so I'm guessing I would have been just over 25:00.

Awesome!

Friday, August 20th:
700m swim
This really sucked. Just haven't been feeling the swimming lately.

Was going to go do weights at lunch but I have hardcore DOMS in my legs and I am supposed to go for my first 20 mile run tomorrow morning so thought I would just rest. I can barely walk! Need to get used to lifting again.

Not to be a party pooper, but it's not humanly possible to run 1/10 of a mile in 15 seconds. An 8:15 pace would put you at a little over 25:30 for a 5k. You need an 8:03 pace to hit 25 for a 5k. But I'm sure 25 minutes is doable for you with the way you've been training. I'd suggest for the next time trial that you make the warmup even slower, mix in some walking maybe, and save as much energy as possible for the 5k while still being properly warmed up.

I wasn't running 8:15 at the end. I was running closer to a 7 minute mile. So like I said, I was probably just over. I didn't mean to proclaim that I can run .1 miles in 15 seconds. I don't think I would have been over by a lot though. But I guess that depends on how you definte 'a lot' and 'just over' and 'just at'. Didn't mean to be misleading. :)

That (8:15) was my average speed. Sorry if my post was confusing. Went back and clarified. Thanks for the suggestions. :) I'll keep trying.

I suppose it depends on your fitness level. I started at a very, very poor running fitness level and just running 1 mile was a challenge. I started by running 5K and then just slowly added from there. Last winter running 10K was my big goal. And somehow now I find myself training for a marathon! So I guess what I am trying to say is start with smaller goals and build from there, or at least that's what worked for me! :)

okay thanks! I find running so much harder than any other cardiovascular exercise. I consider myself a pretty natural athlete though. I grew up dancing and running so I should know these things! lol
