Story for "Wow. That felt really good."

I love training days like this. Everything worked out and the run felt awesome. It was a sure indication that my months of training have paid off.

I have had an interesting year where I decided to take up running and duathlons and managed to do some good quality training and get in one of the best cardio-vascular shapes in my life. I still can do more and improve a lot, but this year was a great introduction to running, traininng and racing. (and my dogs love the extra running they get to do with me)

I planned for a race a month starting in May through September. I almost managed to meet that goal with the following races:

  • May: 10K at Saskatchewan Marathon - 48:51
  • June: 5K at Edmonton FUNd runners - 22:07
  • July: Duathlon (Standard distance) at the Great White North Triathlon. Where I qualified for worlds next year! - 2:36:09
  • September: Half-Marathon at Saskatoon's Race Against Racism fundraiser. - 1:44:30

My results are good for someone in their mid-forties and just starting out. I plan on increasing muscle mass for my legs in hopes of building my biking endurance for a 40K race so I don't have leg cramps due to over stimulation. Also, I plan on getting my run time for a 10K down close to 40 minutes. This will all take some intense workouts over the winter months. Here goes. :)
