Yesterday: Ran: 20 miles / 32 km - 2:57 h - weekend easy run
Today: Ran: 6.3 miles / 10 km - 51:06 - 10k race
This is going to be a short post. And a grumpy one. I will post a full 'weekend runs' recap tomorrow.
The laryngitis is less sucky at the moment and I have high hopes that it will be gone gone gone in a couple of days.
Despite of the laryngitis I decided to head out for my long run Yesterday. Took it slow. My throat is still sore, but the rest of my body does feel a bit less 'sick' . So, the scheduled 20 miler it was. And, I really can't paint you a happy picture on this one, it sucked. The first 12.5 miles killed my legs (apparently that's what laryngitis does to your body), and then I got the brilliant idea to take the dogs with me for the next 7.5 miles. Let's just say that they had no intention at all to slow down and -to make a long story short - they literally dragged me along the trails. My legs felt beyond sore afterwards. No fun. Enough said.
As for today. There was a 10K race in the city I live in. The startline is literally 800 meters from my house (Tha Crib). That's just too much race fun to resist. So, 30 minutes before the actual start, I decided to sign up. Brilliant thinking, since my legs were still feeling beyond sore from Yesterday's 20 miler (did I mention yet that that 20 miler sucked?). And the soreness did NOT go away during that 10K. They set a WR on that race: 26:44 min on the 10K. It wasn't me. Ha! I struggled through it in 51:06 min. Actually not that bad, considering Yesterday's 20 miler and the laryngitis... But knowing I could've been a couple of minutes faster without the laryngitis and the 20 miler, does not really make me a hahahappy camper at the moment. What can I say, I just love to beat myself up. ;)
Good news: since the NYC Marathon is in only 6 (WHAT???) weeks, I guess this was an OK weekend trainingwise.
How did your weekend long runs / races go?
