Nike Human Race Sunday, August 31st, 2008

Woo hoo! Just finished the Nike Human race. I don’t know my results yet and I didn’t set a personal record or anything, but this is actually noteworthy… Check out how consistent my pace is for the race. This might be the most consistent pace I have ever run (since high school). I’m pretty impressed. Ignore where it drops off at the end, I forgot to turn off the iPod.
Consistency! Crazy cool!
Very tough race for me. it was VERY humid out, and I haven’t been training with any hills, of which there were PLENTY on the course. Really hard. A good baseline for future races though.
After the race we were treated to an awesome concert by Ben Harper. One of my favorites to see live. I think I have seen him 5 or 6 times now. Great show. Very nice setting too, the stage was right in front of the state capitol.
More later.
Here’s the stats. Check it.

Long time no post and this is a short one.
Just wanted to say that I am going to do the NIKE Human Race this Sunday. It’s a 10K! Am I ready? Eh, who knows, I haven’t been back at running very long now, but I increased my distance from 2 miles to 5 miles over the past 5 workouts. Maybe that’s moving a little fast. Dunno. But we shall see. Check out my workout logs over to the right there to see my progress.

Oh.. and I just took my second ICE BATH! More on those soon. Excruciatingly good 🙂
