New Kinvaras came in the mail two days ago.  Wore them for the first time in this race besides walking around in them one day at my house.  Kim and Jane were running Onion Days 10 K so went over with them.  We ran 2 mile warmup at 7:45ap.  Then my knee pain was back so I opted to do 10-22 on/offs (1 min on /1 min offs) for the 10 k race.  I hurried and got my watch together. The race after warmup was about to start.  I set the 22 on/offs but then apparently pushed the wrong button so it only just started my watch. Grrr.  I spent the first 1/2 mile of the race trying to figure out what happened then gave up and then just pushed the watch lap every min for the ons and offs. So first 0.65 ish miles were like 6:36ap then I ran an off at 7:30ish then on off x 11.  Offs were too fast and ons were too slow because hey, this was a race.  LOL this was not easy.  I kept passing people every other minutes and eventually the crowd was thin so there was only two guys I would leap frog until after mile 3 when they stayed in front.  So I decided to bag the on/offs for a mile (0.86) then started them up again for the next mile then just ran the last mile at whatever  I could muster.  Ended up with a time of 43:06.  AP= 6:56.  Garmin read 6.2 miles exactly.  I was ninth overall woman.  First female over 40 (I am 45).   Met the guy just 25 secs ahead of me at finish. He and I both ran the Murdock Half Saturday.   He was 27 secs ahead of me there!!! too funny.  He is 58 and also trying for Subthree at Sg.  YIKES.  My 10 k time does not look subthree ish!!!

kinvara 5s.  Getting used to them on this run.  Yesterday not so much.  EASY run today.  8 miles @ 8:22. First mile 9:10.  Last mile 7:57.  Left at 1130am.  HOT but oddly it didn't seem to wear on me.

5 miles tempo.  First time up before work to run in a long time.  Wonderful hot wind!! Found only one cold spot in the air for like a foot of my run.  Like a  swimming pool.  So not ready to try to run fast in this.  Warm up slow....was like a 10 min mile for a few tenths wondering what the heck was wrong with my watch cause I felt like I was running a 830pace for sure.  Ran 2 mile warm up.  Then 6:59 (emergency potty break at about 1.14 miles....thankfully I was running loops and my house was nearby), 6:47, 6:52 (saved by an untied shoe, bought me 15 seconds rest), 6:39, another shoe untying, same shoe, must have been planned, ha ha, and final mile 6:47.  I ran a loop from one church to the other.  Both churches have this slight uphill portion and I would run thru the parking lot on the slight down hill.  HEADWIND every other half mile!! Tailwind must have helped though.  This was not fun.  NO MUSIC!!  Ipod dead from half marathon water dumping.  Big bummer!!!!  AP for tempo = 6:48.  This was run at 430am!!!  1.2 mile cooldown at 8:24 ap.    Off to work for 13 hours.  So busy. Non stop.  So tired now.  It is 8pm.

8 easy pace miles at  just after 10am.  AP 8:23.  Went here and there and everywhere, rolling hills.  NO soreness from tempo yesterday.  Just can't shake the blues but trying my hardest to think positive. So here is something positive: LOVE my KINVARA FIVES.  Since they are my first pair of Kinvaras I might be on to something.  The fours and threes and twos never fit right.  I think they widened the fives in the toebox.

I work tmr so had to run steady long run today. Meaning a slow long run with no fast finish for last six to 8. That is next sat for cottonwood half pacing job for 1:30. Today i left at 8:45 am. It was great the first 8 miles then I was tired from the low carbs. Brought with me one pack of stinger gummies...11 small pieces but apparently steady long runs should be carb free. Not electrolyte and water free. I had three places I stopped for water. Warm water. But oh well water nonetheless. Iws very salty...happened to get a taste of my salty arm while getting water. I ran easy pace but man my arthritis acted up badly by mile 14...both knees and pelvis. The very slow pace from the begining made it so i didnt feel any endorphin effexlct so pain greater. AP 8:31. Would have been 8:35 if I didnt end my misery with one sprt of fast mile at the end- 7:00 flat. Muscles or heart not the issues, just joints. I am pretty much looking forward to the end of my marathon career after sg. I need to rest my body for a while, do some easy cross training.
