Well since I stayed up last night to watch the Mole, I chose to push my run back to tonight. Well I think that may not have been the best idea. Not only was it almost 90, we were under a Code Red smog alert in Atlanta today. 2 Miles into my run I definitely could feel it in my lungs. By the end, I had cotton mouth even though I wore my fuel belt and drank all 4 bottles. Its definitely time to upgrade to the 6 bottle model.
My first two miles were great. The first one came in at 8:47 and the second was 8:59. Then mile three was hilly and I did it in 10:06. While I never felt like my run was hard, I definitely was not getting enough air to keep up the pace of the first wo miles. The final two miles were 10:17 and 10:08. Total time 48:18 for an average pace of 9:40. Overall, not too bad for an easy run, but I think I couldve done better if I could have breathed easier.
Tomorrow I have to be up at 4:15AM so I can hit the bike for a 90 minute ride. Before I go to bed I am going to set up my bike on the trainer in the garage. I lucked out that Cathy's car is in the shop for some routine maintenance. This will be my longest early morning workout to date so it will be interesting.
This weekend is the Iron Girl Sprint Tri in Buford, GA. It should be a great weekend. Cathy and I will be working packet pickup on Saturday morning and then there is a blogger dinner get together at our favorite italian restaurant. I cant wait to meet
Katie, Robin, Lauren, Mendy and David. Wes and Dee Dee will be there as well.
Thanks Wes for setting this dinner up. It should be great
