Race Review – X-Treme Scramble #3 “DISCO”

23 Aug

So, yeah…this song was in my head all week. Why? Well, I’ll tell ya why

Last night was the final HMF X-Treme Scramble and this month’s theme was “Disco”. The general idea of these Thursday evening, after-work weekend kick-off runs is that the course is never the same as last month and you never know what you’re getting into until you’re well into it

This one was a pretty straight-forward course – head north along the river, past the boathouse, through the woods and back. Easy peasy. No stairs, no hills, no bridges. A great course and some decent weather. We missed out on the expected storms/rain and there was a nice breeze.

I decided this time to stick with my intervals and NOT half-ass it like usual “Oh, this is uphill and I should be running but I’ll walk and just tack it on to my next run interval…” and so on 🙂 And, amazingly, knocked about 3 minutes off of my last 5K so, lesson learned.

What I felt like after running my intervals up hills…

Post race, talked to a PT that was on-site about a pain I’ve been having, he poked my butt a little and showed me how week my glute muscle is. Suggested squats and that sort of strengthening to help things out. Glad I took the 10 minutes to talk to him for sure.

Grabbed my Harpoon UFO and my burrito from Moe’s – and headed up the stairs to find a seat and enjoy dinner!

As always, the Hartford Marathon Foundation did an excellent job with the series and everyone had a great time this summer! I’m pretty thrilled that I FINALLY managed to do ALL THREE events! Usually I miss out on at least one!

Up next – the Old Wethersfield 10K (At least, I think I registered for the 10K, it might just be a 5K!)

Have a super great weekend ya’ll – and get out and enjoy the sun!!
