The weather could have been a lot better, but running with 30,000 other folks is always a ton of fun. I anticipated having more time to train, but my knee has not been cooperating this winter. I was a few seconds slower this year – 49:17 but was surprised to see I could hold an average heart rate of 175 (I thought my LT was closer to 170). I subscribe to O.S.Ca.R (Old Swimmers Can’t Run) so this puts me in about the same position for the June Richmond XTERRA triathlon as I was in last year. Time to hit the pool!
