Long course at West Point. Legs were very tired after yesterday of course. Stuck to my plan of "no mistakes" and by that I meant the "complete brain dead wander for 15 minutes type" of mistake. And I succeeded! First weekend in a long time where I had three steady races. I made mistakes, of course, but they were smaller and controlled. I'm very pleased with my racing this weekend. Now just need to work on endurance, so I can actually run a long race some day.
I carried an energy bar and ate some of it at 30, 60 and 90 minutes. That seemed to help. Didn't like this chewy bar, however. May try have to try Sandy's suggested Gel Shots.
I felt so slow out there, and was dismayed that I was going to be out close to two hours. I was pretty bummed, even though I had met my goal of no (big) mistakes. And then I finished and saw that Peter and Peggy had taken ~90 minutes, so my 2 hours wasn't so bad. Felt better instantly :) (As long as I didn't look at Kristin's time). EDIT: I misunderstood Peter's time. He ran 1 hr 13 minutes.
Another fun weekend at West Point.
