Need to sleep but just mentioning: on my drive home tonight, it was a pretty eerie moment driving "passed" the school shooting from the highway - while listening to NPR talk about what happened. A normally quiet/dark/desolate view of the school as you pass by around 6+ PM, now filled with hundreds of cops, news crews, and just activity everywhere with massive lines of traffic throughout Parkland. Comparatively, the highway was a ghost town.

sad stuff.

RIP.

It's just horrible. Makes me grateful for where I live but it still horrifies me how politics always gets in the way of a solution.

great session.

The 2 miles @ HM pace, were supposed to be 6:20's .. but it was just so odd, by 0.65 or so in the first mile I was still at 5:58 and that felt so slow. I thought my watch was broken. I then tried slowing way down and still, just too much easy speed. So I was driving that .. then Andrea took over and she drove that last mile, no idea what the pace was until seeing the data just now. Pretty cool. hah. The driver/passenger style is legit, hopefully we do more of it. Passenger doesn't look at their watch at all, just tries to stay more relaxed and feed off the driver who is doing that work. The driver needs to do a better job driving tho....... lmfao!

Perhaps a good sign for Sunday .. just too much easy speed. felt great. I want to go out at 6:15ish or so, we'll see!

No more training until Sunday's race.



good stuff!!!!!

we're going to do some long run/tempo style driver/passenger stuff .. curious to see how my HR fluctuates when i'm leading vs following.



first half is leading .. second half is following.

HR jumped up a bit and leveled off at a higher HR than mile 1, pretty much as soon as I started following.

^^ Also, at the tail end of my progression run, an NFL combine prep class walked onto the football field.. :D By the time I was doing my cooldown, they were ready to fly, so I cut it short (at 17, wanted to hit 20 lol) and took some videos/photos etc.

Here's a few, i'll post all of them here tomorrow:

This is 10-20, ie after only 10 yards of accel, flying:



This dude was a monster:



Will post a few more photos/clips tomorrow, I have some more nice ones.

peace!!

This is my first "tax season" in the contract work world. I expected i'd have to pay some decent $$, since none of it comes out of my taxes from my employers. But wow, got wrecked. LOL. :trolldance: :raging:

funny, just noticed in my last workout, I had a ~19:4X 5k, and a ~1:33:34 half marathon in there (like 1 minute off of my PR hah), which is awesome considering I did all kinds of weird stuff with paces going all over the place. funny. weird.



anyway .. that 1:32:XX half PR should be absolutely destroyed tomorrow :D :ibrunning:

Looking to destroy my 1:32:?? half marathon PR tomorrow. Just noticed that on Thursday, I actually hit a 1:33:?? half mixed in with all of my training and cooldown miles/jog laps etc.. 1:33:?? is about 1 minute off of my PR.. lmao. kinda cool.

Really looking forward to a half.. I plan on going out "fast" but, fast for me with half distance on my mind is like 6:1X. So that's pretty cool. Normally in 5k's i'm ready to try and drop some 5:3X or lower first few miles etc, which is a bit more stressful. I should be able to relax at 6:1X for a while at least, and just enjoy the race more, until I have to really start fighting (whenever that comes :D ). One of the most enjoyable races I did, was that Jingle Bell Jog 5k where I expected to have to go out crazy fast, and ended up just coasting out ~6:00 tempo for 3.1 for teh win. I remember that felt pretty cool. Hoping to get at least 10 miles like that at ~6:1X pace but who knows.

had to do some work on my pinky toe tonight.. lmao. nail was really painful on the end. had to dig in there and remove a piece.

feels 1000x better now that I removed that.

still hilarious how I always do some dumb shit before a race.. I smashed it so hard into the door that the nail got a bit wrecked. ridiculous.

02/18/2018 A1A Half Marathon Race Prep!

1) I should be in sleep ALREADY
2) I'm waking up at 4 AM but have to be out of the door by 4:20 AM, sounds impossible
3) VIP parking, shuttle to start line by ~5:15 AM hopefully, warmup for ~20 minutes with some strides at the end
4) chill until race start
5) go out at 6:1X pace and hold that for as long as possible
6) if i start dying, fight to keep it on track
6b) if I feel great by mile 10, finish the last 5k hard (drop the pace down to 6:0x etc) .. doubt this will happen but you never know. Adding it as an option.
7) drop a sick half PR: current half PR is 1:32:19 .. let's try to get 1:26 or below. 6:1X for the whole half would be 1:22:XX or below.

I'm really looking forward to 6) though.. I mean, i'm going to get to relax at that pace. If i'm feeling good, that feels like a jog. Why it ends up feeling hard (ever) is beyond me, just don't have the mental/physical endurance over time, perhaps .. but a 6:15 mile for me feels like a jog lately .. I mean I couldn't even get above 6:10 on Thursday, felt like i'd have to stop completely to do that. Soo, it'll be nice to go out into a race feeling like i'm jogging for once. LMFAO. Well other than that Jingle Bell Jog 5k where I dropped those 3 easy miles @ ~6, that was fun/amazing.

so yea, looking forward to not entering "hell" right from the start of the race.

the top guys in this half will probably be running 5:45 - 5:55 min/mi .. 6:0X could potentially be a top 3 as well. 6:1X definitely won't be top 3, but it's all good. First one. Let's see.

peace!

http://www.wildsideonline.net/results/2018/a1ahalf.php

kewl.

fun race.. enjoyed it more than a 5k. but I tried to just stay relaxed throughout .. so that probably explains it. Once I start pushing halfs harder, it'll probably get alot rougher. :D

**btw** don't trust my HR data. it's wrecked. very inaccurate when i'm sitting around resting etc.. it's way off.

also, warmup was fun. Saw Mason Elliot (crazy fast dude, got 4th in this race), and we (and a few others) ran ~3 miles to the start. I was supposed to take a bus to the start ... but the line was like, 300 people. So when I saw him I immediately asked how do I get to the start and he's like, "we're going to run there", and I was relieved.. i'd rather run 3 miles than wait in line for 40 minutes. LMFAO.





DON'T TRUST THE HR DATA. it's WRECKED.

Yesterday and today, my resting HR was often over 100, but manual testing had it sub 50 .. maybe my arms are too hairy for this optical HR monitoring bullshit. Anyway, there's no way my HR was that high, I was relaxing. lmfao.

Lots of people are telling me that's a solid first half race. Who knows, but i'm happy about it.

The last mile is considerably better because, the 3rd place female passed me and I just said nahhhhh, and went out in front of her and made sure she didn't pass again.

Prior to that, I had started coasting a bit. Most of this race I was on my own, due to how weird I pace. Leaving packs, not being able to hang with other packs, etc.

Anyway, I was like #8 or #9 OA at 10k.. lmfao. :trollface: :ibrunning: :motherofgod: :trollface: :trolldance:

Took this shot of Miguel Tellez crossing the line, 3rd overall in the marathon (2:49:12?). I train with him on Tuesday's usually, he's a monster.



They are going to post tons of photos soon, hopefully they have a few good ones of me -> ie, I hope i'm not a ghost like usual. :D

checked past photos.. they are heavily watermarked.. what a joke. fuck this race. :D
