Back on track

Every time I have a bout of bronchitis I seem to get slower. I'm still coughing now and then but I'm about 95% recovered this round. So I went over to the track to get a little slightly faster jogging done today.

But I just didn't have it today. (It was unseasonably warm, too: 63*F and windy). Mile repeats were:
  • 12:33
  • 10:44
  • 10:40
  • 12:59

The "fast" two in the center were about the times of my slow two in September. Oh well. It's all good. I just have to stay healthy and keep laying down the miles and they'll come around.

Whew, I have a 15k race on Sunday - I haven't run that long in ages. Last year I cramped up so badly on this course that I had to stop - I'll take the first couple of miles pretty slowly this time out there. Slow finish times are better than DNFs.

Good luck on your race this weekend! We've had some wild swings in temps recently.

I say its the heat. I had a terrible run this morning and that is my excuse and I am sticking to it. Fortunately, it will cool back down for your race, which will hopefully make running a little easier. Good luck!

Nice work on the mile repeats Nancy; those aren't bad at all for getting back into running and getting over an illness. All the best and fun times with your race this weekend; enjoy the holidays as well :)
