I placed

Coach always says you can't win all of your workouts. As a matter of fact, if you do, you probably aren't pushing yourself hard enough. There is probably more in the tank... Or when it comes time to race, you'll be toast... or worse, injured.

Well, yesterday completed kicked my butt. But today, I didn't win, but I placed. I think I came in about third. Just felt good on a nice easy zone 1-2 workout. Didn't hurt myself, stayed in my zone and went faster than I used to in what was probably zone 3. There might, just might, be something to this heart rate zone stuff...

AND I survived a whole day without sugar yesterday. Plan on doing the same today. Rock on!

Your coach's advice is really interesting. Thanks for sharing.

You remind me that I need to figure out how to use my new heart rate monitor ...

Congrats on your sugar-free day!

Sugar-free? Okay, I'll support this habit. Any more thoughts on the 10k?
