Hello Netizens! How is everything in the Blogosphere?
I went to my first Fit session today. I joined the Yellow group. Yellow dudes must run in 9 to 10 minute pace. I'm still undecided whether this regimented training is a good thing or not. Informal poll suggests that at least 2/3 of participants at the Fit were female. Does this hold true in other Fit groups also? Perhaps females are more of a social animal than males. Either that or male varieties are too proud to admit that they need a group help. Who knows.
Today we ran 3 miles. Elapsed time: 28:33, which translates into 9:33 pace. Tight in the middle of the yellow group pace. Kayano XI miles: 362. Since the Strawberry Fest 10K in Wisconsin, I have gone back to my old marathon shoes. Thankfully, I have just purchased another pair of Kayano XI (not the new XII) and so I will be using these to train for my next marathon.
Today's seminar was on hydration. I'm sure the information was useful for beginners. Next weekend, Luke's Locker will give a seminar on proper fitting running shoes. It is also a 4 mile run. I'm debating whether I should RTW it or Fit it.
After being inspired by Joe Carey's blog, I have been working on convincing my wife Fran to come out for the 8/12 run and upgrade my membership to a family membership. I'm using the P.R. angle to entice her. Since this would be her first race, it will automatically go down as a P.R.
