Wow, triathlon has turned me into a huge nerd...

It's 8pm on a Friday night.... and I'm going to bed.

My recovery went great, actually. I swam and biked on Monday, Ran on Tuesday, swam and biked Wednesday (with 3 x 10 min Z4), ran twice yesterday (12 miles total), and swam and biked today. Well, I think today the fatigue just hit me. I was sluggish and hungry like I haven't been in weeks (well, aside from the night of the race). And I'm spent... Just in time to race tomorrow!



I'll be doing the Hermes 10-miler in downtown Cleveland bright and early tomorrow morning (probably in the rain). I've always wanted to do this race and haven't had the opportunity before. So here goes! I've never done the distance so it's an automatic PR. Here was a quick excerpt from a conversation with The Oracle about this race:

Me: So what should I do about the race... use it as training or race it?

The Oracle: Is it a race?

Me: Yeah...

The Oracle: There ya go.

So I'm racing it. Trying to focus on even splits and running fast. The race pics from the Kinetic Half are in and I also got some good feedback on my running form to concentrate on. Should be interesting!
