well, whatever else the 1500 was, it was a good distance workout. So the confidence doesn't seem misplaced.
man, somehow I just don't feel like racing tonight. Fri night race is tough mentally after long day work. hopefully I get in the mood when get down there with the other racers. now LAST night at FOM, I felt like racing. they made it look so easy.
I feel like that a lot of times, sometimes before my best races. Like, I feel lousy, just going thru the motions, oh well, lets see what happens, WOW
good air quality, relatively cool, light mist!
I should have done the donut run and at least gotten 4 donuts out of the deal . . . that would have been the only redemption of that race.
sad thing is, the donut run had more than twice the number of runners than the real mile.
yeah, I shoulda done the donut for sure . . . just have fun with it. during the open mile, I actually thought about what it would feel like to eat a donut after running a hard quarter mile . . . just would take the suffering and pain to new levels . . . not willing to go there! you have to be a real masochist to do that sort of thing. I mean, I like donuts . . . although, I guess that is one way to swear off donuts . . . associate them with nausea, hmmm, like aversion therapy. might be onto something there. So I guess I'll have to bring chips and salsa to my next JD 16x200m workout, haha! somehow, don't think fellow exercisers would appreciate me spewing up half digested chips and green salsa. that is just nasty. I hope this whole running with eating competition is just a fad. eating competitions are just gross. running should be a pure kind of suffering.
