This weekend I ran (see not raced) the 80’s retro run at Rio Vista park on Saturday, then this morning ran the “Double Down” at the Runners Den 5 7 10K’s. I ran the 5K with my daughter as it was her first ever real race and because she listened to me and started slow to maintain a good pace, by the time she dropped me and headed out she lost a medal spot by 2, yes TWO seconds. I really feel bad for her but I had no thoughts that she would handle the 3 miles so easily. See what soccer training can do for you?
I did decent, held back almost everywhere just doing them as runs, but was able to have a little surge after mile 4 that lasted long enough to get past around 15-20 folks. It felt good to get out there and do these runs, I mean my training plans called for a 10-12 mile run this weekend anyway so I got that in.
This was saved as a draft so I guess I had more that I wanted to add but never got back to it. Sign that maybe I am too busy and need to do a better job at segmenting my time?
