With it being cold again, decided to get in a trainer/run brick workout in anticipation of the sprint triathlon I am racing next Saturday. So I started on the trainer, doing the Team Zoot Spinervals workout, that tired me out sufficiently with alot of heavy gear work and high cadence work to boot. Then hopped off, grabbed Trinity and my IPOD and hit the road. The legs didn't want to work with me right away, so I started off rather slow, hitting the road with a 8:40 pace, but each successive mile after that I had a negative split, finishing with a PR for the new course and a 7:20 final mile. Can definitely feel my cardio getting better! Great run despite the raw nips!
This year, like last year, I will be riding for Mary Payton's Miracle - My friend Steve Kogos from Trigators informed me that his friend Joe's daughter, Mary Payton, was diagnosed a number of years back with Late Infantile Batten Disease. This is a disease with no cure, however, there are special experimental (and extremely expensive) treatments which have shown some significant signs of success! In order to assist with the costly treatments and research, Mary Payton's Miracle was created to raise money to find a cure, hopefully in time to save little Mary Payton as well as the many others affected by this terrible disease!
