How About a BIG Slice of Humble Pie?
So maybe I shouldn't have written that post yesterday about 13.1 miles being 'ain't no thang'. Sure, doing it as a training run at an L2 or L3 heart rate zone is most likely 'ain't no thang'. BUT that's not what I decided to do today. Nooooo...I decided to try and PR and to PR big time. Like a 10 minute PR. I'm pretty sure that would have been all fine and dandy had I been training for racing this race but of course I'm not nor have been. I'll leave the gory details for an official race report post but let's just put it this way - I went out harder than I could sustain, I bonked, I spaced out and found nirvana (okay, maybe not nirvana but definitely another dimension), and then I cramped. You all know how much I LOVE to cramp. It was AWESOME! A great lesson learned though. This one will stick with me through at least the rest of this year. I might have amnesia next year.
