Post Relay Update

We finished hard. Together we passed the goal and raised $3,687 for the American Heart Association.
 
This combined with the donations raised by the FA Red Team #HeartWarriors, and a generous contribution by First American, over $37,500 was raised.
3:00 AM comes awfully early

April 9, 2019 final run before the relay

With the relay only a few days away, I decided to do only one more run and give my body a couple of days to recover. Plus, give me some time to make my fuel reserves will be there. I hit the road and trail after work and did a 5.66 miles. My pace was just under 10 minutes per mile. Not bad, I shaved about 30 seconds off from when I first started training a month ago.

Next stop, the Ragnar Relay.

April 8, 2019 Fuel Reminder

I got up and headed to they gym with every intent of a good run. It didn’t exactly work out that way. I did my usual 5 minute warm up walk on the treadmill before resetting for the run. I wanted go for speed, but the energy just wasn’t there. I switched goal from speed to incline. I still completed over 4 miles, for 352 feet incline.

I realized the fuel wasn’t in me. The night before, dinner was a big salad and I had not really eaten that much during the day. Diet is an important part of this training, and shouldn’t be shorted.

April 7, 2019 Running with little sleep

I am an IT Project Manager and as such, my work does include managing deployments that happen overnight. This was a weekend where we did a deployment that started at 9:00 PM Saturday night and finished at 3:30 AM Sunday morning.

I have to say that this run was not bad considering I had only about 4 1/2 hours sleep the night before.
