Race: Results, 13 hours

Biking (W&OD Vienna/Leesburg) 3:44:00 [2] 40.75 mi (5:30 / mi)
slept:8.0 weight:191lbs

Passed out last night sometime after 9 (No! No alcohol or drugs were involved). Up before 6 this morning. Drove to Vienna, VA (~11.75 mile mark) and parked next to the W&OD - great spots there at 7 AM! The trail closer to home would have had some flooded parts with all the rain the last two nights...
Cycled out to Leesburg (32 mile mark) and then back. Lots of road crossings - 2 difficult ones. Stopped for a break about 15.5 miles in and had a GU. Stopped on the way back twice, once to give bandaids and lend my towel to a runner who had fallen, and once for a diet Coke. I had the bandaids as an afterthought because I get blisters on my thumbs sometimes...
Last 4 miles were a struggle, especially the last two which are uphill.
Excellent day!

Misc (Boot Camp Day 10) 50:00 [1] 0.0 mi

The end of the 2nd week of BC. Little short on time today because it was raining a little and people whined to go inside. So, we went to the nearby rec center. Ran a little, then lots of upper body (shoulder) stuff. Also pushups which I managed to do today the girlie way. Cannot do these outside on the pavement... Ab work, of course, at the end. The outside of my right ankle is sore today - probably from the jumping rope.

Walking warm up/down (Wakefield track & home) 29:00 [1] 1.9 mi (15:16 / mi)

Drove home from BC to drop off the car and then jogged down to the track. This is 7 laps of walking in between and after the miles recorded below.

Running (Wakefield HS Track) 47:26 [2] 4.6 mi (10:19 / mi)

Figured I would get some running in while the Advil was still working...
Ran down to track (3:10) and then ran 4 laps in lane 6, walked a lap, then repeated 3 more times. Finished up with 4 laps of walking.
Very humid morning - dripping buckets. I didn't think I could do the 4th set, but I got it done.

Misc (Boot Camp Day 9) 1:10:00 [1] 0.0 mi
slept:6.0 weight:190lbs

Well, I wondered whether we would do any jump roping, or is it jumping rope or rope jumping?, and today I found out. 4x3 minutes with upper body band stuff in between. I tried to jump slowly, but that was actually harder than jumping fast. So, that is what I did, and I did better than what I thought I could. Provided rope was too light and a bit short. Other novelty item was bench squats - very difficult. And then we did 3x30 leg lifts. Very humid morning. Right knee is a bit sore, but nothing Advil can't mask. :)

Misc (Boot Camp Day 8) 1:10:00 [1] 0.0 mi
slept:5.0 weight:191lbs shoes: Saucony Hurricane 6 S10

Slept better last night but woke up at 3:20 & was unable to fall back to sleep.
Today, I left the house a little earlier and rode bike around a bit more than usual. We ran about 1.5 miles today. I was feeling a bit nauseous near the end of today's session - during the million crunches in various positions. I only ate a banana beforehand. I find that I need to have toast or a breakfast bar as well, or I start feeling sick - the opposite of what others experience...
Suicide sprints were the novelty item of the day.

Running (Treadmill) 36:20 [1] 3.0 mi (12:07 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 5 Men's

Tried out the new treadmill. This one is in the basement - no window to look out of like when it was in the bedroom. But a fan sits on the freezer behind the tradmill and makes it bearable. Am listing to the tunes on my new IPod in alphabetical order.

Run wasn't fast - some 4.5 mph, mostly 5.0, and some 5.5 mph. Very nice machine. Now I'll should read the manual and see what else it can do for me. About 6 minutes of warm up/cool down not included.

Misc (Boot Camp Day 7) 1:10:00 [1] 0.0 mi
slept:5.0 weight:191lbs

Didn't sleep well last night but had no problem getting up. Ride down and back to the site. Today - lots of variation of push ups, situps, jumping jacks, and other ab things. Oh, yeah, arm raises without the band and squats. A little bit of running - maybe 1/4 mile. A good day.

Misc (Boot Camp Day 6) 1:10:00 [1] 0.0 mi
slept:5.0 weight:191lbs

I am waking up a little before the alarm goes off at 5:20 ready to get out of bed - a good feeling. I am surprised that my body held up to last week. The variety of activity helped.

Today included some ranger run, some sprints on the track, lots of situps, some jogging, jumping jacks (I am getting better at these), and the bike ride to and fro.

Thanks to the Advil, everything feels fine. Though I am already starving for lunch 3 hours after breakfast. I guess I need to bring a snack to work. Luckily, the vending machines don't hold much appeal or I would be raiding them.
