I did four 5 k races and was able to cut 1 minute off my times.
Begining with 29:53 to 28:40.
Then I did a long run, I did the loop from the house up West Evans to Pleasant creek, and back down lower Pleasant creek by Wimer grade school and up Queen Branch to Pine Grove back to the house.
Thought it was about 9.75 miles so, went by the house to add another 1/4 mile more so I could have a full 10 miles, but as it turned out 9.70 miles, but not bad for my longest run to date, I had been running 6 miles in training lots of time all summer, so I push myself and did the distance in 1:51.20.
Next year I would like to run to RR and and back for a 14 + miles and do one 1/2 marathon. we'll see how it goes.
Later, on September 15 I did the Ride the Rogue, I was looking at the 100 miler, but I just could not get the training in, only had 6 weeks to get ready for it, so about 2 week before I was hitting about 50 miles a week and I should have been up to over 80 miles in training.
So I went for the 64.4 miles, and that was a good call, because the upper arm, for what ever reason, were shot at about 55 miles.
At about half way point I caught up with Noah Jarvie and we road in together, we had a good ride and did the ride in about 5 hours, is came out to about 12.9 MPH average, not real fast, but good for me.
I did this ride about 2 years ago, and it was very wet ride and I did it by myself, it was about 5 1/2 hours, witch as a far cry from the fist time on a mountaing bike with over 6 hours.
But all in all it was fun, I'm off the training till some time in December and I start back in after work in the dark at the school track.
This me at the Pear Blossom, trying edge out that girl there.
