Training for 5/23/19

First and most importantly, last night they announced the 2020 inductees in the NASCAR Hall of Fame and they FINALLY VOTED IN THE ALL-TIME BEST DRIVER, BOBBY LABONTE!!!



Even better, he will be inducted along with Joe Gibbs, the owner with whom he won the 2000 championship, and his teammate at Joe Gibbs Racing, Tony Stewart!

Congrats, Bobby, Tony and Joe!

Today, I finally ran again. I went out and did a little speed work to get ready for the Masser 5-Miler on Sunday.

All that nice weather from the last couple of days is gone. It was sunny, in the 80s and humid. Probably for the best though. It’ll be more like that when I’m actually running these summer series races.

Anyway, for this first race Sunday, I’m going to shoot for 7:20 to 7:30/mile pace, so today, I ran four half-mile repeats aiming for the top end of that range, meaning my goal was were 3:40 per repeat.

I did a mile and a half to warm up, then ran the four repeats in 3:42 (slow as usual for the first one), 3:33, 3:34 and 3:35.

I did a quarter-mile of recovery after each and another mile to cool down, to finish the 5.5-mile loop in 46:11, an 8:24/mile average.

By the time I got home, clouds were rolling in, and now Pepper is barking at thunder rumbling in the distance. It’s raining now too.
