NASA Wellness Day 5K

Exercise: Had my best race of the year. After a 2 mile warmup (at about 7:45 pace), ran an 18:42 for first overall win in this 5K on Redstone Arsenal. (6:01.9 per mile pace) I was in the lead from the start and didn't see any mile split markers so I really had no idea how I was doing until close to the end when I saw I had a good chance to go under 19 minutes. Considering I had done very hard workouts 3 of the previous 4 days, I'm not sure what to attribute my good time to. I have been taking vitamin B-50 supplements the last two days.

Boeing Halloween 5K and Sunday long run

Exercise: Saturday did the Boeing Halloween 5K in downtown Huntsville. Finished 12 overall out of 277, first in my age group and first overall Master's winner in 19:02. Tried to start out conservatively but failed miserably (as usual). My split times were:

1 Mile : 5:52
2 mile : 6:25
3 mile : 6:06
0.1 : 37.20

Sunday, I did 1 Hour and 34 minutes on the trails on Monte Sano (probably about 11 miles). Did the north Dizzy Fifties loop, except I took the Logan point/Keith trail, then the Sinks back to Mtn. Mist up to O'Shaunessy Point. Then finished out the last half of the North Plateau loop.

Hill Work

Exercise : Ran 12 minutes (about 1.5 miles) warmup over to HillMont. Then did 5 hill repeats with a recovery jog down the hill each time. One of the toughest workouts I've done in a while - I this this hill must be about 1/4 mile long and gets steeper as you near the end. Then I ran about a mile back to UAH Fitness Center (41:34 total).

Repeats:

1:41
1:42
1:46
1:46
1:44

Liz Hurley Breast Cancer 5K day

Well, not quite as fast as I would have liked - 19:07 (6:10 per mile pace). Started out a little too fast even though it didn't feel bad at the time. I paid for it on the last two miles which had more hills. First mile was 5:51.

Overall I finished 3rd in my age group (out of 41) and overall 19th out of 297 men and 19th out of 1025 total (i.e., I beat all of the women :) ).

After I finished I went back to run with my wife's friend, Margarita, and pushed her to a new PR of 24:59 and third in her age goup.

15K Race Day


Exercise : Did the Monte Sano 15K this morning in 1:03:20 (6:48 per mile pace). Placed third in age group (21st out of 252 finishers overall). Was a whopping 5 seconds faster than last year. Very cool temps, so I can't use that as an excuse. My plan was to average 6:45 per mile - did that for the first 5, but the hills and lack of really long run got to me on the last 4 where I slowed down to around 6:56. Counting warmup up and cool down about 10.5 miles total.

Mile Splits:

1: 6:48
2: 6:38
3: 6:33
4: 6:39
5: 6:44
6: 6:54
7: 6:54
8: 6:58
9 : 6:56
0.3 : 2:10

Here's a pic of me wasted right near the end of the race:
