Training for 6/2/17

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 12:33 pm

Today is my parents’ 35th wedding anniversary!

Yesterday, I did a little strength training and then ran an easy 3-miler.

Later that morning, my mom and sister picked me up, and we went to Fenwick Island for the day. It was another perfect beach day with minimal crowds.

A lot of sea grass had washed up on the beach for some reason.

Today, I got out pretty early again for a run, and did an easy lap around the 5.5-mile loop.

Tomorrow, I’m joining Clark, his dad and Bart for a little practice tri in Cambridge. Well, I’m going along for the bike and the run. No swim, thanks.

They’re going to do sprint tri distances — half-mile swim, 15-mile bike, 5K run — and try to move through the transitions between each leg as quickly as possible, to get ready for Eagleman, a week from Sunday. Until now, we’ve just been dilly-dallying between the different legs.

Then I’m running the 3rd Wave 5K in Delmar in the evening. My friend Melissa, who also ran this one last year, said she’s feeling a little burnt out after running two crappy races, so I suggested just running this one for fun, no pressure. We both won mini growler age group awards last year; do we really need another? And the beer afterwards is free whether you ran your hardest or not.

Sunday is a rest day, because it’s the Dover NASCAR race! Clark is skipping it, to fly to San Diego for a conference. Loser haha. Anyway, Mike and I are going up early, as usual, to tailgate, and then the rest of my family will meet us there. The weather forecast over the last two days went from rain, to thunderstorms, to clear, to storming again, so I guess we’ll just see what we get.
