Surely we cannot have a Flashback Friday without there being a Friday. And since tomorrow is when the U.S. business world will be celebrating Independence Day, there will be no Friday in blogland for Team BHI. And since I have no recent runs or significant boozings to report, I will provide you a Flashforward to the days ahead.
Tonight, before celebrating another 30th birthday, I will make a dash to the track for five 800-meter intervals. Instead of attempting to blow an O-ring by running too far, too fast but not too furious. (HEY-OH!) This time, I will shoot for sub-3:25 per interval (6:52 per mile), and I'll use my new found track knowledge to run the correct distance.
Seeking the White Whale
Saturday morning, I will make another attempt at my racing White Whale, the sub-50 10-K. Last year, I missed breaking 50 minutes by 49 seconds. The Davey Tree 10-K is the first race I ever entered, and this will be my fourth time running the event. Last year, I discovered the charming magnetism that is the Puke Threshold. Expect more gory glory this year.
And then 14 Miles
You didn't think I was going to run a 10-K and call it a weekend, did you? Sunday should be an interesting 14-miler, after a setting new PR and enjoying the holiday.
Sounds like a busy weekend. I'll need make sure I hydrate properly. Happy Hour comes early today. Happy Independence Day to all my U.S. readers. Have a finely brewed weekend, and good luck to all you fellow racers. Run well and drink well. Cheers!
