This was my 6th Race for the Cure. My time was 29:48 - slower than last year . . . but under 30.
I had two goals -
- to beat last years time
- to finish under 30
I didn't beat last years time - but I did finish under 30 and I am OK with it - honestly I wasn't able to do much running before hand because of the stress fracture. But the good news is that my foot felt fine and I am feeling good. I hope to publish a picture - I will be checking the website and try to swipe one. ;-) My son finished in 20:22, 10th in his age group and 30th overall. Oh to have young legs.
Since I am going to be biking in the MS 150 in August I also wanted to bike today - so as soon as we got back from the Komen Race - we loaded the bikes and headed out to Cottage Grove. My training schedule called for a 30 mile bike ride today. So we rode from Cottage Grove to Lake Mills and back. Kept a pretty consistent pace of 14.5 miles per hour, slowed down coming back - the wind picked up and the storm was coming it. We got a little wet - but the heavy rain held off until we were home. I am glad that I started to train now - 32 miles was tough - but I know hope that with training - I will be able to do 75 two days in a row.
Tomorrow I have a 5 mile run on the schedule. I also might head downtown to the Ride the Drive . . . portions of the downtown will be closed off to vehicles and only open to bikes. There will be a 6 mile loop with vendors, etc. This is the kick off to Bike to Work week.
Peace and have a great weekend.
