Back to Bizness

Since the half-Ironman I took a 2-3 week hiatus from serious training and healthy eating.  Physically, I was ready to go the next day for a workout but mentally, I just couldn’t get fired up.  Call me lazy.

Last Friday, I ran the first race of the Pier 60  5K Beach series.   How awesome is this….four 5K’s for $35! Ouch, did that first one hurt! My legs weren’t used to being pushed fast after being so lazy rested so I should be proud of  a 23:12 beach 5K, which landed me 1st in my age group.

The race was relatively uneventful until the last tenth of a mile.  I passed a woman with half a mile to go that I recognized from a few local triathlons.  This was a little ego boost since she beat me the last two races.  Little did I know, she stayed right  behind me and shot ahead 2 minutes from the finish line.  “Agghhhh!”, I moaned in my mind and then a burst of energy came when I thought, “Hell no, I’m not going to let this happen.”  I surged in front and kept my lead into the finish line. 2 seconds difference…Take that!

Has that ever happened to you in a race?

Well, hopefully with this weekend I’ll be inspired to get back into full training mode.  I have the Oldsmar Taphouse 5K  tonight and the Dunedin Sprint Triathlon on Sunday.  Wish me luck!
