Their reports aren't posted yet, but Sea Legs Girl won her inaugural 100 mile race and Steve in a Speedo won his first duathlon.
My week was full of fluids. Besides snow and rain. There was blood, mucus, pus and other delights. I'll save you the details.
My first week of recovery from the failed 50K and switching to 1 Mile went as follows:
Monday (64 degrees) 3 miles in 23.5
Tuesday (64 degrees) 6 in 51 with 3x1200 in 5:13, 5:10, 5:00 - 400m (2:20). Very slight wheeze in third rep.
Wednesday (37 degrees, blowing snow) 3 in 23.5
Thursday (41 degrees) 6 in 53.5
Friday (30 degrees, rain and snow) 0
Saturday (48 degrees. Overdressed - full sweatsuit) 6 in 51.5 with 1200 in 4:33, 400 in 75 (downhill, with wind and probably short), 400 in 87 (uphill, against wind).
Sunday (42 degrees) 9 in 81 with 8x100 in 20.5-100(55sec); last 2 in 15:02.
That puts me in 5:50-6:00 shape for 1 mile. I need to be about a minute faster before I race and I'm not sure I have it in me any more.
