NO..I'm Not Dead!

 I know it's been two weeks since my last entry and honestly I couldn't say where the time went. Though I haven't been running as much as I would like,  I have been working out and swimming a lot. Doesn't really take the place of running but at least guards against sliding backwards with fitness base.

Even though I promised myself and others that I was not going to sign up for the B to B, somehow I reneged and I am running it. Odd thing is, that I haven't really trained for roads (other than a short run last Monday) so I am not sure what to expect.

 I suppose at worst case, it will prep me for a hard run at the Breaker the next weekend. My intent is to run the BtoB moderately and then run back to the start after, making it a long run. I was originally hoping for a PR at the Breaker, but with the lack of training lately, I will be satisfied to finish close to last years.

My last three runs:

7/20   Bradbury (first half of breaker)
4.5 miles @52:50 --11:44 pace (two mile cool down)

7/25  Road run (semi race pace)
3.5 miles @29:04 ---8:18 pace (1 mile cool down)

7/28  Bradbury (first half of Breaker)
4.5 miles @55:43---12:22 pace (1/2 mile cool down)

Swimming laps almost every day and sometimes twice a day in between the runs. The bright side is that my right ankle is feeling a lot better.

Glad to hear you're on the mend! Swimming is such a great way to keep in shape. I should do more myself.

Thanks for the good words on the blog, and looking forward to seeing you at the next shindig.
