A friend sent me this picture from last week’s Sally’s Run 5K and I just had to share . . .
in case anyone was wondering what my suffer face looks like. Yep, that’s it. I reported on the pain and suffering involved in my 5K PR here, in case you missed it. What is probably somewhat sick is that I am really excited that Coach is requesting a lot of 5 and 10K action over the next couple months, which means I have more of this in my future.
And because I do best when I go into a race well-acquainted with the feeling to which I am about to subject myself (thus effectively turning the race into “just another workout” in my mind), I did some suffer-face/ dying-animal noise practice on the track yesterday with Sam. It’s not that the track workout itself was all that crazy, but I have been sick for a few days now, and between both a nose and lungs full of junk, air was not readily available, to say the least. Ouch but we got it done.
I am hoping my health decides to return in time for my wedding next week! On that note, I think it is bedtime here after two brief items of business.
1) Reader Ben brought up a fantastic question in response to yesterday’s “Win My Kit” contest, and the answer is . . . you are entering to win a new cycling kit, thank you.
2) Slowtwitch did an awesome interview with my coach Joel Filliol this week. It is definitely worth a read!
