Barb’s Race Recap/Training Update

October 24th, 2010

Barb’s Race 2010 was overall a great disappointment to me – my swim and run were SLOW!  My bike time was 16 minutes faster than 2009, but I really attribute that to my new race bike.  I barely trained for 2010 and my results show it.

Thom did get a few good pictures.

This is my favorite as  I had  such fun on the bike.

This is coming in to the transition to the run.

The run in to the finish,  thankfully, he did not get any pictures of me nearly barfing.

My quad injury seems to have finally healed and I am settling into a groove with my weekly runs.  I have the lofty goal of 8 miles a week through December.  I’ve been doing a five mile run on Saturdays, while Thom works with our trainer, Shawna.  Thursday mornings at 4:30  Thom and I have been doing intervals.  Those kick my butt, but intervals are how you get stronger.  Tuesday mornings I do a short run by myself that I don’t always get in,  sometimes work gets in the way.  I’m still working with Shawna Monday and Wednesday mornings.  Those workouts never get easier.

It looks like we’re going to do a bit of traveling in 2011, so I don’t know how many races I’ll sign up for.  For sure I’ll be doing Barb’s again.  We’ll see what others I can fit in.
