Today's Workouts

Today's workout was a 10 mile race. The Annapolis 10-Miler.

Decent weather for August. Warm and a little muggy but not as bad as it could be.

I ran about 6 minutes slower than last year's race (1:21:xx vs 1:15:xx) but I was kind of expecting that since I had a long hard week of training and didn't rest up for this race at all. So I'm ok with the results.

The Donk ran with me and was kind enough not to leave me in the dust, which he easily could have.

70 miles total running for the week.

The best part is, when I picked up my race packet yesterday, they had a large display of running shoes on sale. Got me another pair of my beloved Asics DS Trainer 13's

I know nothing about the training that someone does leading up to a race (running). With swimming one usually does a taper (with training) before big events.

Maybe you weren't all that concerned with just a 10 mile race considering all the miles you completed this week.

yeah, running is the same way. for big races you do a taper and are rested-up. this race was for fun, just training through it and getting ready for the fall races.
