Okay here is the report: After my bike crash yesterday and a wicked migraine from the whiplash, I suppose, I tossed and turned and got up to the bathroom 4 times. I felt achy like I was an old lady that fell and broke a hip. My knee swelled (serves me right when my neighbor asked yesterday morning "how do your knees hold up?" I said "my knees are great, they are bionic". But then I said "I better knock on wood". Well that didn't work since I crashed on my bike about three hours later). Tried to think "it's okay" just run thru the swelled knee pain. I even broke down and took ibuprofen in the middle of the night. At 530 am I made my way over to SF. Met PURPLE PONYTAIL WOMAN, KIM. Great job killing your goal time, Kim. Anyway, still feeling achy and now chilled (cold at start), I hung out in my car for a few minutes ate two fruit snacks (the wholesome kind that are 100% real). I talked a little to Josse and Michelle (Fast Women). I wanted to get under 1:40. I met that but it wasn't very easy. I am still feeling achy and flu-like. But I told myself "just do it" (thanks NIKE) and I would somehow feel good about it later. I do but I have to say I am disappointed I didn't win one of the zillion great prizes. Here is my breakdown:
1-- 7:42, I better pick it up if I want 1:40 or better
3-- 7:50, wrong direction with the time, took GU before this.
4-- 7:40 I think my goal is dwindling, unless I do a negative split (HOPE)
6-- 7:52 the hill starts just before here
7-- 7:40 decided to be stronger than the hill
8-- 7:07 yay a downhill
9-- 7:27 that pace didn't last long
10-- 7:19 okay maybe I can get my goal
11-- 7:27 not liking my iPOD music, why do I have Philadelphia playing? Fumbled to find a better uptempo song.
12-- 7:29 I am okay with this as now I am at the last mile and plan on picking it up, can I?
13-- 7:08 Ahhhh, glad my effort showed on the clock!!
.1-- .37 (6:10 pace I believe, I do a weird way of calculating but I think I got it right).
GRAND TOTAL: 1:38:22, Does that really mean I will get a 3:16:44 at St. George. Would like to dream so.
