At 6 am I had my first "time trial" for my early morning 1 credit jogging class. Even though its a short race and it doesnt really matter for the marathon I still think its good to log it as if it were a real race just to get in the habit.
There are about 30 people in the class and 2 or 3 people went out full on sprinting. And after the first 400m there was still one guy just giving his all about 50 ft ahead. I had just woken up and was not interested in taking first, but I kept the distance and focused on keeping a solid pace. Had a feeling he would tire out. Went through the first lap at 4:57 and as we started the 2nd and final lap sure enough speed racer hit a wall and I, without speeding up, overtook and dropped him. I kicked up the pace and finished first woo hoo! My bpm was 160. I cooled down to temple beach for a swim.
I had my first round of classes this semester and swam at Pounders with my brother some big waves.
At 5 pm or so my buddy Nick took Evan, Chaz and I up to Laie Summit trailhead and we ran up to the forest. We made it in 23 mins (its two miles but close to 600ft in elevation). We burned it down hootin' and hollerin' I had some cramping in the ribs area. It was super fun to run with an actual group and even though nick and chaz havent been running for a long time they were able to keep up really well. It felt like the good old days running with a team. We got back down to the car right as the sun was a settin' and we caught moon barrels for a solid 45 mins after the run.
2 runs and 3 swims aint bad. Im feeling very healthy and happy what more can a man ask for!
