St. Pat's 4 Miler:

Sunday, March 10, 2013

My shoulder is still pretty messed up but my legs did me well yesterday. The St. Pat's 4 Miler race was great. The weather was great for this season in Binghamton and there was an indoor gathering area. This was the first race I've been to since October where people hung around afterwards.

I took this picture an hour after I finished and there is still a good crowd.

I was happy with my own results because they show progress. My goal was to keep to around ten minute miles, but I wound up with nines.

Distance Pace
1 mi 08:58 min/mi
2 mi 09:01 min/mi
3 mi 09:00 min/mi
4 mi 08:47 min/mi

It was also our wedding anniversary and we went to a Thai Restaurant to celebrate. My calories at the end of the day were about double what I normally take in. Judith went slightly overboard too so today we took a fairly brisk five mile walk together in beautiful weather and are working toward getting our three day calorie average within our goal ranges. Tomorrow I'm going to get in a long run.
