Concrete/road run race (Austin 5k) 36:00 [5] 3.2 mi (11:15 / mi)

I definitely would not recommend the Austin Marathon to anyone. The 1/2 and full marathon had almost 16k people all starting together and staying together for 12 miles. The start was delayed by almost an hour. My race was then delayed by that plus 10 minutes. Warming up only does so much good when you don’t start on time. They had to change our course this morning and it was one big hill out and back. I had to walk some of it because it was so steep but I still passed people. On the way back, I would get in a good rythym and someone would stop in front of me. Once I had to stop hard and my left ankle and calf took the hit. I’ve done quite of bit of limping since then. It’s pretty sore. Also I had an incident with a homeless man. He had his pants down and was being offensive. When he came up to me, I got back in his face and expressed my displeasure loudly. He laughed. All of a sudden my son ,who isn’t a big guy, got big and cop like and yelled at him too. He walked away and then circled back. That time both my son and his friend, who is a big guy, surrounded me and got rid of him. Even though I was fine, it was upsetting. I saw him one more time but it was minor.

Concrete/road run (Kids run) 12:50 [3] 1.2 mi (10:42 / mi)

I did a kids run with 2 of my grand kids. This was a PR for them and I feel like I got CrossFit training by dragging them the entire way.

Trail Run long (4 hr) 4:00:00 [4] 18.0 mi (13:20 / mi)

A few years ago, I gave a friend some advice for running trail that is flooded; suck it up and run down the center of the trail. Today the 1st 75 yards of the trail were flooded and icy, and as I was getting ready to suck it up, my brain stopped my feet. It didn’t just say No but hell No, you’re not going to have cold, wet feet for 4 hrs. So I did dances, gymnastic work and a few long jumps over miles of flooded trail, and flooded creek crossings but at the end my brain and feet were both happy.
I did have a problem with my ankles again and the pain really started to slow me down. When I changed shoes at 2 1/2 hrs, I got immediate relief. The problem had been lack of arch support. Because of everything, I had been 5 min slower than usual at that point. Over the next 90 min, I gained 6 minutes.

Treadmill hills (Hill tempo) 50:00 [4] 4.4 mi (11:22 / mi)

This was a tough run. Of the tempo portion, I ran 10 min @ 11:30: the next 5 @ 11:18 and most of the last 5 @ 11:08 There was 30 seconds that I dropped it down 10 seconds. I just needed to catch my breath so I could finish. My cool down started at 11:10 but I eventually slowed down towards the end.
I did have to hang on a few times but overall it was decent.
