Yesterday's race has me hobbling around my house. I can barely walk, it's true. Luckily the pain feels like some combination of cramping/DOMS, and not like I actually hurt something. Whatever, it was worth it.

 

Feeling inspired to run another half soon. I was so close to getting a 2:15 half marathon that I think I can do it if I practice pace runs. I already have one scheduled for July 22nd, but might sign up for one 4th of July weekend (if it has pacers)! I would also like to start training with a running watch, so I can easily keep track of my pace. 

 

Given the current state of my gams, I'm going to try to keep the 25 mile goal for the week, but I'd like to skip 2 of the squat sessions. Recovery runs for the win, squats when I can walk up and down stairs.

Way to go on all those PRs! Sounds like you have one heck of a month ahead of you.

Yay, thank you! It's going to be a lot of work, yes yes.

Congrats on the PR, that's a really good pace!!

Thank you so much!!!

 

I'm really excited about all of the PRs, because I try really hard and am lucky to see even 1 PR in a single run. To get 11 PRs in one run is pure $$$ money, and it feels really good!

Picky, picky.

 

Great job with all the PRs and good luck on the next race.

A few days ago, I literally had to pick up each leg with my arms when going up big stairs. Not a joke!

Thanks! Not as exciting as lock picking, but we can compare notes on meditation practice...

5 minutes after a race: "I AM A CHAMPION!  NOTHING CAN STOP ME!!" \o/

2 hours later: "Ugh, this place has a stair to get in.  Let's go someplace else."

I was here after the Half Marathon I did with my sister in Raleigh. I was totally shocked to wake up so sore because we ended up walking 95% of the course (her schedule hadn't allowed her to train as much as planned).

 

Have you taken your new watch for a run yet? I love my Garmins but im a data nerd.

Yesss! Glad you are back so we can discuss gear.

 

Garmin just came in the mail and it's charging. It looks cute, it's a baby! Will update after first run to let you know how it goes.

A lot happened last week. It was my birthday so I went way off diet, eating lots of pie... pizza pie, pie pie, etc. Pie, glorious pie! I ended up having to work on my birthday, but made up for it by spending the day listening to Will Wheaton reading Ready Player One. Now my very favorite book. It's gotten me listening to Rush and playing text games. Found a good free one on Android called Magium, it's sort of choose your own adventure, but with stats. Been a lot of fun to explore. 

 

Some sad stuff happened this week, too. Found out that one of my close friends from college passed away in his sleep. We don't know the details... May have been drug related, and intentional. I haven't seen him in a couple of years, but we were in touch. We were actually supposed to get together the last time I was in California, but it didn't work out. I guess you never think about meeting someone like it's going to be the last time. I've been reading back over all of our text conversations from when I was 24... And really seeing how much I've grown since those days, and also noticing what a self-involved wanker I was. Hopefully the fact that I can observe that quality now indicates that I am less like that. Always something to be aware of. Anyway, took a look at the celebration of life happening in Portland, and figured out I hate everyone else on the guest list, so I will likely be doing a celebration of life on my own, looking at pictures of him, reading back over his e-mails, and listening to some of his music. It's sad.
