So, back to my event this morning. It was a really nice event located in one of Atlanta's nicest parks, Grant Park. Very tree-filled and breezy, which made it so much nicer since the temp went from an expected 80 degrees to almost 90, yikes! The first mile was tough. I wasn't as warmed up as I would have liked to been. Therefore, it took my legs a good ten minutes before they started feeling better (pretty sad, huh? I should know better). Anyway, after I got my groove on, the rest of the run felt great. We finished the race at 31:05. I'm not too disappointed with this time since I usually run 3 miles at an indoor track, very cool and flat at 29 minutes. So, I have this first one on the books. Yay! Mimi and I plan on doing one almost every weekend until two weeks before our next tri in October.
My birthday is next Friday and I'm trying to decide what I want to ask Craig to get me. I'm thinking about swimming lessons. Since all of you know how much I really don't love to swim. I figured if I could get someone to help me do it the right way, I would learn to enjoy it and therefore, get better. Thoughts?
And finally, I am sad to announce that I will not be doing to US 10K Classic on Monday. I think I was still on my triathlon high when I decided to do it and I think I may have been a little too ambitious. I want to be smart about my training. So I will save the 10K for another day.
I hope everyone has a fun-filled, sport-filled Labor Day weekend!!!
