Buh-Bye Jacksonville! / Celebration of Running 5K

Hello Everybody!



I start this blog out with sadness in saying that my running of the Jacksonville Marine Corps Half Marathon in October is no longer going to be happening. :( - I will still run on my own though in the World Wide Festival of Races Half Marathon :)






The reason I will not be running in the half marathon then is that is the day of my son's FIRSE EVER T-Ball game! I could not miss this for ANYTHING! This is a short 2 month league, so my Saturdays from October 3 til the end of November are now filled. This also means I will have to cancel my running of the Big Pig Jig in Bushnell, FL on October 17th. For this, I say sorry to the rest of the Central Florida 5Klub, but I will feel to badly if I miss my son's t-ball games.

In other running news, Week 3 of my training plan was a DISASTER! I have been sick all week! Being sick at the begining of the week had me decide to change up some of my schedule for the week. Monday was a cross training day, so I just decided to take the day off. On Tuesday, I still was not feeling any better, so I decided to move my Thursday REST DAY to Tuesday and give myself another day of recovery. On Wednesday, I did get back out there and did 5 miles and was "thinking" I was feeling a little better. Thursday, I figured to be safe, I would do the scheduled 5 miles, but would make it an easy run instead of a Tempo Run. Friday, I made my way to my friend's house in Groveland, FL as we had a race to run on Saturday in Orlando. We had planned to run together on Friday night as I had 4 miles planned for the day. But visiting with friends, chatting, and playing old-school NES caused this to not happen (I did kick his butt at Double Dragon though). We finally got to bed around 1:30 AM and had to be up by 6am for the race.


I awoke fine though and was ready for the race (or so I thought). At 6:30 our small group (4 to be exact) met up and rode together to downtown Orlando for the Celebration of Running 5K presented bt Track Shack as the started off their Grand Prix series of races. (I was Bib # 590 If anyone wants to look up my results) Upon arrival we did not have time to run our SWAG bag and t-shirt back to the car, so we just decided to "hide it" in some nearby bushes. A little bit later, the race of 1,747 runners was off! I was not ready for the start of the race when it happened and my Forerunner 305 was not yet ready and was still "Locating Satelites". About a half mile in it finally located them (I guessed nearly 2,000 runners and being in downtown Orlando had something to do with that)! I was still feeling fine at this point and kept on moving at a good pace (somewhere around 7:30). However, about a half mile later I reached the 1 mile mark in around 8 minutes flat and then the COUGHING started. Just when I thought all the sickness was gone IT'S BA-ACK!!! I then slogged my way though the course while hacking up my lungs for the next 2.1 miles! I did finally come to the finish line and finished the Celebration of Running 5K in a time of 24:55 (according to my D-Tag Timing chip on my shoe anyways). I felt horrible after the race and just wanted to lay down.

After the race we all went out to Cracker Barrel for breakfast and then I headed home to my family. Upon arriving home I ended up taking a nice, long nap as I had a 10 mile long run planned for Sunday. Sunday came and my mind was ready for it's 10-miler! I had a course all planned out and was going to run it around 5pm when the weather cooled down. However, I had kept coughing all day long and was still not feeling perfect. PLUS, upon getting close to 5pm I saw that a really bad storm was approaching us, and figured between my sickness and the nearby storm, the last thing I wanted was to be 5 miles away from my house hacking up my lungs while a monsoon was comming down on me. So, as hard as it was to do, I decided to skip my long run for the week. So, in a week that I was supposed to run 27.1 miles, I only managed to run 13.18 miles! HORRIBLE.

Well, this is now a new week with no races so hopefully things will go much beeter and I will get my miles in (and please let me be cough free). I have 29 miles on schedule this week with a 10 miler on Sunday! Hopefully all goes well!

I still have full intentions on starting The Crazy Runner Podcast. I was waiting for finances to get right until I could get a digital recorder and a microphone before I started it, however, I might just go ahead and record with my headset for a while just to get my podcast out there and started. NO MORE EXCUSES! So hopefully within 2 weeks I can have AT LEAST episode 1 out there for everyone to hear. I can always switch the format to a runcast once I get the equipment, but at least this will be something in the meantime

Til Next Time!
