Beer Geek is still out of town and both boys went to sleep early, so I’ve been chillin’ with the computer this evening.
I added my race PRs to the sidebar, mostly because it give me an easy place to find them. The one thing I’ve noticed is that my speed has not improved much in the last year of running (my 8K PR was in March 2007). My endurance, however, has greatly increased. When I ran the Army 10 miler last year, it was only the third time I’d run 10 miles. And after the race, my legs were stiff and sore by the time I had walked to my car. Now I can do 12 miles and not be sore at all. And 7 miles is my “short” long run. One thing I’m really looking forward to after the marathon is going back to racing at the lengths I like (8K-10 miles) and really working on speed. I think that after the MCM, my longest race will be the half marathon.
And as an added bonus, here’s a picture of me and Beer Geek when I’m not hot and sweaty at the end of a race. (And my hair is short, that’s just a wierd shadow behind me)
