Indoor 10K

This weekend there was an indoor marathon, half marathon and 10K. Considering I haven't run for 6 weeks (since the marathon - yikes!) I decided the 10K was enough, and boy was that a smart decision. Saturday we went skiing in the afternoon (so much fun!) and I came home with a migraine. Then the dregs of a cold got to me and I've been stuffed up and hoarse ever since. So I ended up not eating much saturday night, feeling like poo, but better enough sunday AM to go and do it anyway. To be honest I was intrigued. And I was somewhat of a celebrity coming from Hawaii. But it was pretty good, quite a few people, so I didn't totally bring up the rear. 1hr and 5 minutes, not bad.

6 miles indoors? How many laps was that?

I was thinking fat rather than burley.....:0) I haven't run in 6 weeks and it turns out running a marathon doesn't give you the leeway to eat anything at Christmas!

Was 50 laps, round and round! The people doing the marathon were doing 200 something - yikes! What was cool though was when you passed the chip mat you could see what lap you were on, kept up the motivation!
