This was a whirlwind weekend. Saturday started with a training run with USA Fit. I ran with one other person and it was a great run. We went slow (as in my heart rate average was 143 instead of the usual 160+) and it felt like I talked the whole time. Apparently we read the map wrong because everyone finished with 8.5 miles and we did 9.3 miles. The training plan called for 9 so I'll call it good!
When I finished with the training run I hurried home, cleaned up, and headed to soccer with the family so I could coach Punky's last game of the season. Then, before the game was done (boo!!) I had to leave and head to the next event: Mud Mania! I met up with Amanda and we captured a few before shots.
first trail run ever. Inside 15 minutes I was exhausted and wondering if we would ever go downhill again. And then the fun really started. We had a river crossing, a mud river (not a crossing, but walking down the mud river), tires, more trails and hills, a water/soap slide and with a mud pit finale. It was a blast. So, when can I go again??
When we were finished we walked back to the car to get a few after shots.
asked what Crazy Bread was and ordered my free bag. I ate the whole thing on the way home. Oops.
FWIW, I finished the 2.8 mile obstacle-trail-mud run in 42:15. Not bad for someone who had never run trails or obstacles and hasn't played in the mud since I was a little kid.
