14 mile run was a bust

I set out to do a 14 mile run with 15 second bursts every 5 minutes.  I started out great and then began tapering off bit by bit arouns 9 miles.  It came to the point that I was walking the hills that I was running in my 10 mile run two days ago.  It really sucked.

It got to the point that my 15 sec intervals were occurring on the hills and it was completely ruining my workout.  I decided at 12.6 miles to stop ans get more water because it was taking longer than I expected.

However, when I stopped, I decided the rest was all junk and I should try again Sunday….

Planes, trains, and no pool

Wow.  It’s been a while since I posted anything.  I’ve been way too caught up with traveling for work, juggling family time, and training for my first half ironman.

Last night I accidentally fell asleep and didn’t get my run in.  So this morning, I got up early and ran 10 miles.

This evening I walked to the train and rode another 15+ minutes.  Then walked another 15 minutes to find out that the pool at the Y here in Denver is closed for renovations.   Good times.

Well, that’s all I got for now.  Hopefully I’ll get better to posting on here again…
