Well, as you know, yesterday I posted my craptastic race recap from Saturday’s Seek the Peak, where I had a major meltdown and absolutely crashed and burned on the Grind portion of the race. Yes, I know, it’s bad taste to whine & complain when you still PR, but when a race is annual, and you just know you can do so much better, it’s frustrating.
Last night, I headed up to the Grind with Karl & Gemma. I was giddy to have these 2 speedsters willing to pace me. And I’m not kidding when I call them speedsters. Just to put it in perspective, Karl’s Grind portion of STP on Saturday was 39:05 whereas mine was 56:44!! Ughhhh that time is just brutal. It should’ve been sub 50 mins. Could’ve…Should’ve…SIGH.
Anyways, I digress.
So, last night, the two of them were all gung-ho to get me a PR, and I felt like 43:00 was a fair bet. 43:29 last week with a bit of talking, so I figured 30 seconds was a solid goal.
