Friday, chickened out of the ritual 5K because of strong winds and rain
showers. *Could* have done something minor in preparation for Sunday on
Saturday, but guess what.
So my only run of the week was this morning, "Bob and Ron's 5K." Same course
(but many more participants) as December's 5K. As I approached the finish-
line clock I had the idea I was going to improve on my time, but the seconds
clicked away faster than I expected; the last time I saw as I reached the
timing mat was 29:55, so I assumed one second longer than last time, maybe
because of being one month older, but the posted results had me at 29:55.7
(118/208, 2/4 M75-79), compared with 29:55.8 (66/126, 1/4 M75-79) for SAM's.
My right knee and thigh bother me some when I walk or sleep, but not in
these short races, so I'm getting hopeful about February's Great Aloha Run.
I Read USENET for the Articles
Incredibly busy at work and preparing for several Oracle user group
related presentations ( one at my local user group in late January and
a second one at a big national class event Hotsos symposium in March/
Dallas ). Volunteering professionally doing speaking gigs is always
good but easy to get over committed especially when major
infrastructure projects are going on at work ... not to mention family
Usual week of running 6 days on and 1 off for maybe 45ish miles.
Nothing on near term racing schedule.
Good luck all!
