4:30 or Bust: A Quest for Marathon Mediocrity

7 Days to the Chicago Marathon

leave a comment »

7 days to the Chicago Marathon!  And today I had a blast at the Red Bank Triathlon, and ran a great race (for me).  Now I can enter my taper in peace 🙂

I’ll write up a full race report later, but here are the stats, as recorded on my watch:

  • Swim (1/4 mileish) – 14:21
  • T1 – 2:56
  • Bike (21.5 miles) – 1:19:20
  • T2 – 1:00
  • Run (5 miles) – 45:20 (9:01, 9:33, 9:24, 9:18, 8:07)
  • Total – 2:23:04

I came out mostly unscathed.  Just one muscle in my left leg that is barking.  Tomorrow will be a rest day for sure, then perhaps runs every other day the week.

Then spent the last 2 hours doing the laundry!  My wife has been out of town a few days and is not back till tomorrow, so laundry fell (literally) on me last night and this morning.  Wow, 14 year olds generate a lot of laundry!
