Back roads in Whately. Mid-30s and cloudy, felt cold even if it really wasn't, just not used to it as November has been amazing fine.

Good week of training given the traveling.

Really enjoyable run playing tourist. Over to the state capitol grounds, a time out for a brief visit inside (and first time I've ever gone through a metal detector in the middle of a run), then back on a different set of streets.

One of the nicest ways to see a city is at a gentle jog.

Great time last night, went to the Texas - Texas Tech football game with Alex (my niece) and a girlfriend of hers (they both have season tickets), while the rest of the family and some other friends of my brother's stayed home and watched it on TV. They thought they had the best part of that deal, especially when the rain was coming down in the first half, but we really had the better deal. Really fun, plus you get to hang out with two cool young women for the 4 hours (!) it takes to play the game.

They were a bit bummed that Texas ended up on the short side of a 48-45 score, but then what do you expect when you have no defense.

Austin is a fine place with the one disadvantage that it is located in Texas.

road running race 41:25 5.0 mi (8:17 / mi) +224ft 7:57 / mi

Thunder Subs 5-mile in Austin. I ran this once before, 2 years ago, on a day when it was about 40F and really nice for running. I was also a lot younger (not that I felt younger at the time). Time was 37:56.

I would have loved to have has weather like that again, but today it was rainy and mild, just about 70F, with the dewpoint also just about 70. Not my favorite conditions. I walked to the start, thinking at some point I should run some to warm up, ran about 100 yards and decided that was enough. Already felt like shit. Was not going to be a good day. The expectation was that I night be able to do 42 or 43. The attitude was, don't try to push it.

And the race was not so bad. Didn't try to really push it, just geared down enough on the hills to get up them without too much distress, and then the rest of the time just keep running along. Not that I wasn't tired, but I felt just a little more effort would have put me into some serious distress. So glad I did what I did.

41:25, bleh. Though if I happen to run this race again in a couple of years I'm sure I'll look back to now and try to remember how it felt to be so young and so fast... :-)

Second for the 70-74s, 20 seconds behind, third was several minutes back. I think I could have picked up the 20 seconds just by starting closer to the front (as he did), as I was dodging people a lot for the first mile. Not that it matters... And I still won a turkey, plus 20 Thunder Bucks, which have already be donated to the starving architects of Austin. :-)

(Note: Heart rate data is wacko. Mile splits are wacko. Nothing new.)

11 AM

road running 19:54 1.89 mi (10:32 / mi) +144ft 9:49 / mi
ahr:158 max:176 shoes: pegasus 5

Hung around the finish for a while to collect my turkey, then jogged slowly back to my brother's house.

Ha, never too old too learn new tricks I guess. First time I've ever run on a 333-meter track. I knew it was short, just didn't know how much, but the first guy I asked seemed pretty sure of the answer.
