Today I went up to Cameron for the April Fools race that I have run for the last 4 years I think. The first 2 years I ran the 5k, last 2 the 8k. This isn't a huge race especially for the 8k but a nice quick out and back. I finished 2nd female. I did have a time of 35:44 my fastest 8k time by over a minute. My fastest previous was 36:55 and last year I won this race with a time of 38:06. Sounds super slow now.
Didn't get a good race picture from the day so this seems like a good replacement. My aunt Betty who volunteers at the race took us out for a nice lunch afterwards.
Had super mileage this week after last weeks race. Sunday after the race my legs were pretty stiff and walking up or down steps was a bit of a chore. By Tuesday my legs were filling significantly better and I tried out 1.5 miles on the gym treadmill. Quads still sore but not bad. Took Wednesday off then Thursday went for 7 miles outside. A bad mood made these miles seem easy. Friday off and 8k today. I'm calling myself recovered. Planing on upping the milage next week and adding weights back into the routine.
