It's all a bad idea. Especially if any of these items are on the list:
- Haven't done any training runs in 3 months or really any running.
- 4 Hours of Trailwork the day before
- Planning to help someone move an hour or two after a run/race
- A 5k Run = a 5K Race. duh
- You can't help but pushing to a comfortable pace
- You PR 3 times on a run with item 1 in effect
- You forget to take advil after the run
- Your heart rate spiked over your maximum
- Running when your really a cyclist
- You wimped out and walked for 3 minutes during the race instead of HTFU
Well so here's the deal. I agreed/wanted to help a BikenetiCX teammate who had heart surgery to support the group who did the work as it is now something addressed typically in kids, not adults.
5K - Big Whoop, I've finished a Tough Mudder - 13 MILES. Sure I didn't train at ALL for this but it's like 5K, I'll take it easy.
Nope 28:18 for 3.1 miles. 3 PR's and if I had not walked a few spots I could have finished down in the 25's. I was 97th but 9th in my age group. At 25 I would have only been in the 50's overall and 7th in age group. Oh well. Fastest guy did it in less than 18 mins. Oy.
Legs are wicked sore. I need to jog occasionally. 1x per week even 2-3 miles. Oh well.
CX bike is back home and in rolling shape finally since Friday. Got a 10 miler in Friday. Might try and get a late ride in tonight to try and spin out legs so I can ride to work tomorrow.
On the flip side the road bike blew a spoke last week on the way home (1/10th of a mile out) and it's now taking a break after a month and change of relative high mileage. But it really needs a new BB and possibly a new crankset. le Sigh.
Hoping to get back into commuting and some mileage building this week. Going to set a goal of 120. Huzzah!
