rhr:76 weight:168.6lbs (sick)

HR/Weight measured at the Dr.'s office. I'm surprised by the HR=76 reading, but that's not a real resting HR. I wonder if I had been diligently tracking rHR whether I would have detected an up-spike as my cough turned productive.

The PA opined that I'm fighting a virus; no other strep-like symptoms

I had the best night's sleep for the night after a marathon that I can recall. Yes, I ached each time I rolled over or shifted positions, but the aches were less sharp than typical after this much (over)exertion.

Today, I feel less beaten up than after the Highlander. I'm walking around reasonably well, only slowing down when I go down the stairs.

Road running race 3:52:46 [4] 26.2 mi (8:53 / mi)
shoes: BA11

Newport Marathon. Quite windy with cool temps. Great day for windsurfers, not so much for runners. My legs started tightening up between 10 and 15 miles, and it was not pretty in the last 10 miles. Splits of 1:19/1:27/1:05 for 10M/10M/10K.

More analysis later

Road running 41:21 [2] 5.0 mi (8:16 / mi)
ahr:155 max:168 shoes: BA11

5M done as 1M w/u and c/d, and 3M trying to stick as close to 8:00 min/mile as I could. Not sure what to do on hills, since I know the energy output to hold a pace a hill > energy saved going down the same hill.

Middle splits were 7:55/7:58/7:45. Breathing wasn't too hard, but I'm not sure how it will feel to do this for 3+ hours instead of 25 minutes.


Dry cough began turning productive, rumbly. Deep breathing slightly impaired.
