I debated on even making this a race report but what the hey, may as well. Basically, a good friend of mine's husband just got back from US Marshall school and his coming home party was last night, and I had more beer than is ideal before a morning race. Legs are so freaking stale from the marathon. Wow. So anyways, I could barely drag myself out of bed and I didn't much feel like running but Eddy was going to be there and I really need to drag out of this slump and at least run some sub-7 minute miles. There is a giant hole in the butt of my Avatar costume, so needless to say, I didn't wear it. Temps were lovely at 64 degrees but the 24mph wind with 33mph gusts was not lovely. I decided to truly run this for fun and just keep it sub-7 and be happy. We lined up and were off. About 100 people bolted off the starting line in front of me like it was a 400 meter race. I trotted along and eased into what I felt was a sub-7 pace and by the end of the first mile caught about half the rabbits. After that I mostly held position. The wind sucked and I didn't fight it too much. I never reached oxygen debt and never really pushed. I crossed the finish line with my worst 5k time in a year and a half and didn't care. It did feel good to stretch the legs and it did make me more interested in truly racing again, because I have been flat and burnt out. Oh, and I won a 13 pound turkey out of the whole deal! Two more weeks of kicking back and then Houston training starts. Hopefully after two more weeks of slacking I will have some motivation again, since it is sorely lacking right now. I am still fighting this issue with generalized fatigue and I don't know what the deal is.
