wow - what a great coach you are Johnny! Already figuring out what I can and should do in my next race! Anyone who was wondering what my secret was for smashing my PR and goal . . . well, there you have it - Johnny is my sekrit! He's a good coach and motivator. Nothing like yelling at me to "suck it up Tamster!" to get my rear in gear!
Like, um, where did this come from, Tamarocket?
All summer it was "garden this, canning that; baking this, cooking that; take DS here, have DS's friends over; lunch with John and Rinda, scrapbooking, yada. Oh, sure, a little bit about running too but ...
Fantastic run, Tammy! What a breakthrough for you.
Now it's time to move on to the next stage. That would be Rest & Recovery, preferably involving a hot tub and alcoholic beverages. I'll be right over to help.
I'm a dark horse, running on a dark race course
oh SS, you had me chuckling out loud with your comments! LOL I have no idea where a 17 min improvement came from, especially considering I'm just a "semi runner". My average weekly mileage of about 20-25 mpw is really the bare minimum of what a I should be doing. In fact, last week was my first ever week of hitting 30 mpw (that included the HM mileage). makes me wonder what I could do if I really took my training up a notch. But I'm too busy with all my other fun things in life, like baking, gardening, canning, playing with DS, organizing playdates, etc. to give it much more time than I already do. Maybe someday.
legs are getting a bit tighter today - not helping that I'm sitting at my desk all day. Need to stretch tonight for sure. I did start the R&R alcohol part already DarkHorse. I actually drank 24 oz of Corona last night! crap - I NEVER drink that much! something about that beer just really hit the spot though. I did have about 1/2 an organic beer at Eel River Brewing Company the night before . . . maybe there's something to having a beer the night before a race??
ETA:I wonder when John will post his RR?????

Holy Cow, Tammy. CONGRATS on a huge PR.... 17 minutes in a 1/2, thats almost unheard of. Well, until now. You were smokin. Yes, you must carbo load the night or several nights before. Beer is a great way. I usually have two beers (local micro brews if I can find them) the night before. Its relaxing plus its extra carbs. Congrats again. now get back to training for the next PR.

You had a goal of maybe sub-2:00 and CRUSH it!!
It's so exciting to hear about your race and how things went so well for you!
Keep up the fantastic running!
Tammy, you ROCK!!!!! I'm going to add you to the list of people I want to be when (if) I grow up!
