So my duathlon today is not an "A-race." I just decided on Wednesday to do this as maybe a good endurance workout leading up to the TC "Loony Challenge" in TWO weeks!
Case in point: I went out for a SHORTER but HARDER run just 2 days ago. Charlie and I were home while Henry was at pre-school, so we hit the trails together. We did nearly 7 miles with the middle 3 at 10-mile-race-pace: 6:07, 6:14, and 6:00. Here are 2 photos from my Instagram page:
"Ready for a morning run with Daddy."
"After 7 miles in the stroller (with the middle 3 at 6:07 pace),
my training partner looked like this."
I didn't Instagram this photo, but this was after he woke up and I took off his hat and blanket.
Needless to say, he loved the run!
Yesterday morning, I got my Speedplays changed after they broke on Wednesday, and Henry and I got Goldilocks shined up:
And if you missed it, I interviewed 3 people (including last year's winner) about how to prep for a "3 race weekend" like the "Loony Challenge" - a 10K and 5K on Saturday, and a 10 mile on Sunday. CLICK HERE to read the post from Thursday.
