Or, “The 'Free To Run 4 Miler' Official Photos”
Here are a few official photos from the “Free to Run 4 Miler” that I did with a few of my Tri Club students on the 4th. Here’s just before the start:
I’m on the far right
Ready, set, go
Students Hannah, Sarah, and Evan starting
(you can barely see Hannah in the green)
Me (3rd), Vlad (1st), and Ryan (2nd)
Male and female winners. Yes, this is the woman
I so creepily wrote about in my last post...
In other quick news, my heel is feeling pretty good. The only thing I did last week was swim once (not far) and then race on Saturday. During the race, it BARELY got a little tight (just at the very end), but it didn’t get sore. That’s good news! Later that day, I was out taking pictures, and it started to downpour. After being stuck under an awning at a body shop for 20 minutes trying to wait-out the rain, I finally decided to run back to my car. My heel hurt a little after that 2 block run in non-running shoes. D’oh. But it’s back on the upswing again. So.....
I swam 18 - 50 yard intervals last night. I cut my rest down to 15 seconds, and averaged 41.05 / 50. That’s just a little faster than 3 weeks ago when I did 17 with 20 seconds rest. I also took my heart rate after a few of them (as Andrea suggested). After 5, it was 156. After 10, it was 162. And after 15, it was 168. Andrea said that was good - she just didn’t want to see it drop which would mean I was giving myself too much rest.
Some members of the tri club are meeting me at Lake Nokomis tomorrow evening at 6, and they’ll be trying their FIRST open water swim!! Wish us luck! I’ll be back with photos!
