Training Day 49 - 5.5 miles in 53 minutes and 57 seconds

The race in San Francisco is coming up fast!  I run in the 100th Bay to Breakers a week from tomorrow. 

Today I participated in a race that was 5.5 miles (5.74 according to my friends gps).  The course was very scenic.

A very scenic run along the river.
 It took place near a state park along a river and it was tough!  Three miles out of the 5.5 was spent running up an incline and it was killer.  I'm used to running up a hill then down a hill or it tapering off at the top.  It's the steady inclines that kill me. 


My compadres and me.


After the race there was a great BBQ afterwords for the participants.  The food they had: roasted pig, pulled pork, beef brisket, grilled chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, chili, green salad, pasta salad, baked ziti, coleslaw, fresh fruit salad, homemade oatmeal sugar and chocolate chip cookies, cupcakes, and soda from the local bottling company. 

I ate:
Salad
Beef Brisket (tasted amazing with a spicy sweet marinade/sauce)
roasted pork (amazing and tender)
chicken wing without skin  (cooked well but not over cooked)
Beef Chili
Fruit Salad
Oatmeal Cookie
Seltzer

Very Yum BBQ!


Because of my yummy yet calorie intense lunch I ate an egg white veggie omelet with broccoli, spinach and Chalula seasoning in addition to an orange and a banana.

Tomorrow is a mother's day brunch and I have all my extra weeklies saved up.  I want to indulge a little but not go too crazy (Monday morning is my weigh day).  Hope to get some rest tomorrow and some fun with my boys.  Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there!
