Trail run 31:28  3.6 mi (8:44 / mi)
Somewhat disappointed to learn that the 2008 Club Champs were going to be a remix of my control sites from the Heart and Troll. It has the feel of a can't-win proposition. Even if I do well, I'm only meeting expectations, and if I manage to screw up, then I'll really be embarrassed. Was hoping to have the opportunity to go to WCOC-Ansonia today, but was unable to find someone else to take Kyra to riding. Well, at least the dogs got a good run today. Decided to really push it today to see if I could get anywhere close to my PR. Managed to get within 1 min counting only the time I was running (28:13 vs 27:22), but did stop for 3:15 at midpoint to wait for Fonzie. Still, I felt as if I could have kept up the pace for the full run even without the break, so that was encouraging. Maybe I will try Blue course tomorrow to keep pushing my training.
