Most people take off on the day after Thanksgiving. Most offices are closed. That was not the case for us today. We were busy today. It was a productive day at work. I did manage to go for Happy Hour Yoga at The Village this evening.
I’m still licking my wounds from yesterday’s race. I sent my result and Garmin data to my coach who replied back with consoling words, “Great run! You have not lost all your fitness!” I take that as a positive. It is expected that one would have a slightly slower pace and a slightly higher heart-rate than peak condition. Unfortunately, the fact is that I am now about 30 seconds a mile slower than my peak and my heart rate is revving just a bit higher.
I guess coming in 4th out of 70 in my age group is not too shabby. But I have run a 5k in 19:47, and that would have given me gold handily!
