Race Ready in One Week

This morning’s run primed me to take down my 5K Masters PR next week. The warm weather has been with us all week which makes for good running and spring cleaning. I seem to sort of follow a two week repeat program, albeit loosely. There are other activities going on pulling away the focus.

Spring cleaning this year involves laying down 14 yards of red hemlock mulch and determing the best lawn mowing tool. Our 21-inch Lawn Boy takes 2.5 hours and that doesn’t include trimming, shower, etc. I like the exercise but it’s not a good value for my time.

Training: am, stroller, hot and humid minor chafing on the Willow Guzzle course


  1. Good luck next week!

  2. 2.5 hours to mow the lawn? Jeez, running a marathon in that time sounds easier. Our lawn is so small we use one of those hand-push ones.

    Good luck taking down that 5K PR.

  3. Lawn tractors are worth it. You can spend the saved time resting and running. Ask the expert! Good luck next week.

  4. thank you, experts, it's time to PR the lawn!
