I do not know how long this will last but this was a great week. I made it to most of my work outs, I actually rode with the group (and kept up for 30 minutes and they were going about 20-25 mph) in Key Biscayne (I hate that place) and I ran my best half marathon in the last 3 years. So it was a great week.
Here is proof that I was at the group work out on Saturday. Here we are for our open water swim before our 3 hour ride.
So on Sunday was the Miami Marathon. I had originally signed up for the full because my friend Josh was doing his 100th marathon on that day and i was going to run with him but I changed plans when I signed up for the ironman. I ended up doing the half which ended up being part of my training for the weekend. I ran with Christy and we did great. Turns out it was my best time in the last 3 years. It was great running with her because we pushed each other when we needed to be pushed. Here we are almost at the end.
After the race I lost Christy so I moved on to the Footworks tent where I met Sue and Carlos. These are the guys I usually run with. I also wanted a massage, food and mimosas which were plentiful at the Footworks tent. Best place to be after the race.
I pretty much stayed there until Josh came in. It was great. There was a banner for him to cross and everyone was cheering him on. I will have to say doing 100 marathons by the time you are 40 is one serious accomplishment.
You go Josh.
It really was a good day but when I finally got around to doing the Restwise and ending up with a 100% score that was really the high point of my training so far. Ever since I started I was getting 40-70% and it was telling me to take it easy. Getting 100% means I am finally getting into shape.
I do not have the workout stats for this week. I really do not care because really I know I had a great week and I am just gonna stick to that. All I know is that if most of my weeks can be like this then I will become an Ironman on June 29th.
