am) Race 4 miles cross country. The wind was AMAZING! The gusts were over 50 mph making the race only 4 miles of what the Hawaii Ironman usually is. I had a blast though! One of the more fun races I've done in a very long time. I was able to move up a bunch of spots on the uphills and in to the head winds but could not get my legs going on the downhills.. some of the guys were flying! I felt flat of course.. even my wife commented that I did not look good even in the first 400 meters. It's good though, with Austin now 3 weeks out am finally ready to rest after tomorrow's long run.
Results are here.
3 mile warm-up- with 4 X hill intervals to elevate HR and get my lactate buffering kicked in a bit.. 4 mile race... 11 miles "cool-down" after the race. That's not exactly a cool-down, more like some volume. Legs felt fine though.
