i do mean to write up a longer post about my weekend in Lake Placid to watch a bunch of Flyers (and FOFs) compete in the Ironman. i’ll get to that either later or tomorrow-it’s just sleep and work took greater priority.
the good thing was that it was a very fun trip. watching the Ironman is amazing-I don’t think I’d ever want to put myself through that, but it was very fun to watch, especially screaming like crazy when seeing one of our own. all of our athletes did very well-only one didn’t finish, but the most important thing was that he was OK-he was very, very smart in his decision and i know he’ll kick major ass next time 🙂
the bad thing was that due to circumstances beyond my control (having someone who was running sub-8’s initially setting the pace, getting separated from said speedsters and making a wrong turn, and my legs just not wanting to get with the friggin program that day,) i came up short on my long run-planned 14 miles, only got in 10. so-how do i compensate for that? my long run for this week was supposed to be 10-should i just do the 14 instead (especially since my long run next week is supposed to be 16 and i don’t want to start falling behind on long runs now or i’ll never make it to the start line!) any advice would be appreciated.
back to work…isn’t it amazing how much can accumulate in 2 days off??
