2017 Race Plans

I’m back to running. After I DNS’ed Dewey Beach in September, I took some time off. I had to. I was heartbroken that my training had gone terribly and that I DNS’ed not one, not two, but three races this fall (Iron Girl, Dewey Beach Tri, and MCM 10k). It was time to reevaluate where running fit into my life. But now it’s time to lace up again. With the new year,  I set a couple of fitness goals:

  • Run 10 races
  • Run 500 miles
  • Complete Bikini Body Guide

Not entirely out there and not out there. I hate setting mileage goals but I’m numbers driven when it comes to fitness related goals so there they are.

As for races? Here are some I’m intrigued and the ones I’m actually registered for (3 of 10)

  1. Penguin Pace 5k – February 2017
  2. Valentines Day 5k – February 2017
  3. Cherry Blossom 10 miler – April 2017
  4. Shape Women’s Half OR Ocean City HalfMAYBE April 2017 (I’m trying to decide if i want to commit to a half marathon this spring…)
  5. JLA Volunteers on the Run 5k – May 2017
  6. Women’s Distance Festival – May 2017
  7. Zooma 10k – June 2017
  8. Maryland Duathlon – July 2017 (MAYBE? I haven’t decided if I’m up for a multisport event this year or if I want to focus on just running…)
  9. Baltimore Marathon Relay – October 2017
  10. 10k Across the Bay – November 2017
  11. Turkey Trot 10k – November 2017

So there – eleven races. I’m not sure if I’ll race all of them – BUT I think my biggest goal is to register for another half marathon.

I’ve wanted to get half number five under my belt for a while now. This spring, since I deferred my Cherry Blossom 10 miler last year and will be running it this year,  would be the perfect time for it.  The Shape Women’s Half was my first half back in 2010 and I’d love to get a do-over. I’m also looking at the Ocean City Half – but I need to look at registrations, race weekends, and Hubs and I’s schedule to see what’s realistic and what’s not.

Ten miler training kicks off at the end of January – next week to be exact. I’m kicking it off with the Zooma Run Love challenge – which is a fun kick start to the year.* Registration is closed for this, BUT you can sign up for Zooma Annapolis (10k or half marathon) and get 10% off with code HEIDI2017.

Race Recap: Maryland Sprint Duathlon

Up until last Friday AM i wasn’t sure I was going to do the Maryland Sprint Duathlon. I hadn’t really trained, I’d been running 2 -4 days per week (depending on the week and the weather) and as of lately, I’ve been doing more pilates (which I’m really enjoying) but I hadn’t been on my bike since the Hagerstown Duathlon back in October.

Friday though, I told new coworkers and my new boss about the race (despite my uncertainty) and decided, what the hell. Why not?!

So Friday night, I brought my bike up from the basement, gathered up all of my gear and got the family ready for an early morning.

Pre-race

In order to be at the race by 6:30 which would give me about a half hour to get my packet, marked, and get my bike set up, we had to leave by about 5:45am. Which meant a 5:15a wakeup for me and Hubs, and a 5:30 wake up for little man. He was, less than thrilled about that to say the least.

Thankfully for this race, parking has never been a hassle since it’s a smaller field, and I knew I wouldn’t have issues. I got my packet with no issues, got my tires pumped up (Note to self get a foot pump – we have a pump at home that my BIL got Hubs which is great, but i had a tough time with it and since it’s electric, it can’t really live in the car) and got racked.

Run 1

maryland sprint duathlon start

To say the course was hot is an understatement. It was about 70 degrees when we kicked off after the men and the elites went out. But the course is a 2 mile out loop through the park, a short out and back on the main road with not a whole lot of shade. There’s one hill on the last 3/4 mile (at the turn around on the out and back part of the loop) and man. Brutal. 

Time: 21:53

T1: 2:59

I need to find a way to make my transitions faster. This one was a touch faster than last year, probably because i made the decision not to switch Runkeeper over to a bike – it was just being too slow and I had a fear of being busted and DQ’ed. Note to self: get garmin working better.

Bike

Ugh this bike. In theory, it’s a 13 mile loop. 13 miles isn’t too shabby. Until you hit some massive hills around mile 6. They seemed worse this year but I don’t know if that was just because my bike and I haven’t been as friendly as we were this time last summer when I was in the midst of training for Iron Girl. Either way. The night before my bike water bottle showed up moldy and disgusting in the trunk of my car so hubs and I decided to toss it, so i didn’t have a water bottle. It was hot. Hilly. I tried to cheer on the riders on the hills – some of them were super friendly especially one dude who i kept going back and forth with. But just…by the time I hit the last mile, I was so spent and tired of the hills, I didn’t finish as strong as I would have liked. 

Time: 58:42 

T2 time: 2:26

Run 2

I tried to go back to my 4-1 intervals – when I don’t feel like running I stick to those but the heat got to me, the hills were just…painful. My downfall here was not in the lack of hills training, but rather the bike to run transition training was my major downfall. I just tried to do some pseudo-farleks – picking points and running as much as I could. I gave it all I had for the last quarter mile or so, but I could have done better if I had done a couple of brick workouts.

Time: 27:11

Total time: 1:53:19

maryland sprint duathlon medal

(fun fact: last years time, the 2nd run was faster but the transitions were slower, my time last year was 1:53:54)

Overall, fantastic race. The team at RipIt events puts on fantastic races and the Maryland Duathlon is no exception. The size is just right for the space, the roads are usually pretty empty (save for the sh!t bag who nearly backed into a biker ahead of me out of his driveway). See you next year Maryland Sprint Duathlon!

Race Recap: Zooma Annapolis 10k

Better late than never right? How was the Zooma Annapolis 10k race nearly a month ago already!? #bloggerfail. Here’s my recap: 

Hubs had National Guard drill so we got a sitter for the race – though I did love seeing a few dads out on the course running with their littles – one of these years, maybe we’ll run it as a family.  Tackling the Naval Academy Bridge with a dualie? That’s no joke yo. I ran that bridge a few times with Ethan when I was training with the Fleet Feet group for the ATB 10k.

Anyhoozle, I swung by to get my bib Friday night. Said hello to a few ambassadors at the cocktail party (mmmm Barefoot wines). Got home, gathered my gear. Could not find my singlet that I got as an ambassador despite searching relentlessly at 10pm Friday night. Knowing I had to be up early, I gave up around 11pm. 

Race Day

I got there just in time to do the ambassador picture, kind of hidden in my non-Zooma Singlet. Intentional-ish. Have I mentioned how incredible the Ambassador group is this year? Seriously, there are some amazing runners in the pack and I am constantly inspired by all of them!

zooma ambassadors annapolis

I’m in there. Just in the middle and the back. You can see my navy blue strap. 

The race started, looped around the parking lot onto Farragut drive, back around to Taylor ave with some rolling hills. We headed downtown – it was… to say the least. Soupy. Not super hot but just really grossly humid. That type of weather is common for this race though and even more common for this time of year in Annapolis.

zooma annapolis 10k

After making our way up King George, we headed up to the bridge. I like the 10k because we only go over the bridge ONCE and we don’t have to go up the nasty hills on 450 headed up towards Route 50 like the half marathon does. 

 

My legs were getting a bit stiff by mile 5.5 and I was losing gas – I didn’t fuel very well and felt a bit dehydrated so the last half mile once we were in the final stretch was a real push for me. It certainly wasn’t my best 10k time, but wasn’t my worst by far.

zooma annapolis 10k finish

Given that my training was kind of m’eh (thanks shitty commute and shitty job for stealing all of my motivation), and the humidity was terrible that day, I was okay with this time. Year number three, in the books. See you next year Zooma!!! 

 

(Stay tuned for my update on the Zooma Summer Challenge!)

Race Recap: Howard County Striders Women’s Distance Festival 5k

So here’s the thing about being a military spouse- active or reserve – you learn to adjust your schedule to your spouses. That was why I “deferred” the Cherry Blossom 10 this year.

Sometimes, I get bummed out when I miss out on fun races. Other times, you make due with what you’ve got, lean on your village and move forward. I stumbled upon the Howard County Strider’s Women’s Distance Festival 5k – an evening race – a few weeks ago and was pretty pumped to sign up. It was drill weekend, but I knew Hubs would be home in time.

Funny thing about evening races, I never know how to fuel for them. I don’t like to eat a whole lot before I run, otherwise I get crampy. But having run on not a lot of gas on Friday evening when it was really warm and I was neither fueled nor hydrated, I know the fine line between being over fueled (crampy and just sluggish) and not fueled enough (no further comparison needed. Like driving a car on empty).

Hubs got home and while I was going to meet up with a pal for a beverage after, she cancelled, so the boys followed me out there after a chick fil a dinner. It wasn’t the perfect dinner but it worked.  Just a simple grilled chicken sandwich about an hour before the race. It wasn’t heavy, had enough protein and carbs. I probably could have made a protein shake but sometimes they make my stomach…grumbly so I didn’t want to risk it. We’ll leave it at that.

They made it just in time to see the warm up that was held (is it bad that I rarely “warm up” in a traditional sense? i was great at it when I was mentoring with Fleet Feet but not really much since) and to see the start. It warms my heart when my boys are there cheering me on. Love them.

Anyhow! The race.

Small race. Insanely well organized. Empty course (cars wise – there were runners, derp)- I guess that’s what happens when you take over a largely commercial/business park section of Columbia on a Saturday night. A touch hillier than I was anticipating but less so than Centennial Park.

I felt pretty good – the first half mile was at a sub 10:00 pace, then we hit the gradual up hill. My splits were…way off.

The second mile was an out and back spur off the main loop – so a little downhill, a little uphill and a little more downhill and a little more uphill. It was…not entirely un-pleasant. Our neighborhood is mildly hilly so I’m mostly used to gentle hills.

Mile 2 – 3 was more gentle hills (nothing major) with a steady downhill down back onto Columbia Gateway.

I felt pretty solid at the finish – the last quarter mile or so was a solid (though short and not too steep) downhill, with the last .1 flat and a slight up to the finish.

Hubs and Little Man were waiting and cheering me – the crowd, though smaller, was certainly energetic despite the ominous skies that were rolling in by 7:30ish. Little man and I shared a cupcake (they were so good!) and then we headed out! All in all, a really fun race that I would totally do again next year – I believe it’s a part of the Women’s Distance series which includes the Baltimore Women’s 5k in June and the Annapolis Women’s Distance Festival in July

The Cherry Blossom 10 miler that Wasn’t

So I didn’t run the Cherry Blossom Ten miler.

DC cherry blossoms

I was okay with this. Hubs’s drill schedule changed about a week and a half out from the race and his drill was moved up a week. For those of you who haven’t run the cherry blossom 10 miler, it’s a fantastic race and I highly recommend it, but it’s an early race. I would have had to leave the house by 5:30 – latest. Before Hubs left mind you – to get to the race. I probably wouldn’t have gotten home much before 11a so even if we got a sitter for when hubs left around 6:30a, it would have been 5 hours so between $50-75 for a sitter – roughly the cost of the race.

I’m not about doubling race fees for baby sitters. I don’t roll that way.

So, knowing the transfer period ended, I took a shot in the dark and emailed the race director explaining the situation – no family, no babysitters (seriously, the likelihood of me finding a sitter on short notice for 6am on a sunday?! LOLOLOL) and a husband with National Guard duty that changed last minute.

Bless them, they made an exception. Relief!

Had I trained better, and actually gotten my long runs in,  I might have been more disappointed/pissed at the situation. But there was a lot of life over the past three months (we moved! bought a house! I changed jobs! we hosted family for Easter! And had Ethan’s 3rd birthday party at the house! ) so my training didn’t go as I had hoped and I was very much okay with this outcome (even more so when I saw the weather forecast – bravo to ALL the runners who ran on Sunday – especially in those conditions!)

So what did I do?

Registered for another race, duh.

I’ll be running the Sole of the City 10k in Baltimore next weekend. I’ve been solidly running 3.5 – 5 miles the past couple of months so I feel okay with this despite…a kind of…m’eh training for the 10 miler

It sets me up quite well for Zooma training though! And that race, I’m itching so hard for a PR – sub 1:00? I’ve got this. Next weekend will set a good baseline since I haven’t run 6.2 miles since the bridge run in November.

So how am I preparing?

Well, to date my longest run was just short of 5 miles so I’m not in awful shape as far as distance goes.

This past week I fit in ~10 miles. This upcoming week:

Monday: Run 3.3 (for my 33rd birthday which is technically on Tuesday but I have a busy day Tuesday so I know it won’t happen)
Tuesday: rest (or another 3.3 if i feel like it)
Wednesday: 3-4 (hills?!)
Thursday: rest
Friday: yoga? maybe?
Saturday: 10k!

Speaking of Zooma…

They added a 5k for Annapolis! How flipping awesome is that?! There’s less than 60 days until the race now, so register early before the fees go up! Keep in mind for Zooma Annapolis or ANY of the Zooma series races in Florida or Cape Code, you can use code HEIDI16 to get 10% off your registration fee. Come run/train with me! 

How do you handle race set backs? Did you run the Cherry Blossom 10 miler? How did it go for you?

Run Love Challenge

So you guys, BIG news.

I was recently accepted as a Zooma Ambassador (AGAIN!!!) for 2016! I’m beyond stoked to be included in an amazing group of women for what is by far, one of my favorite race series.

I’ll be running the Zooma Annapolis 10k (where I PR’ed in 2012 and hope to PR again!) in June and also, participating in their first ever Zooma virtual challenge this winter!

zooma run love

I’ve ceded my December goals- or at least my initial get fit during the holidays self-challenge. Coming down with a stomach bug didn’t help, nor did being in the midst of a couple of super stressful weeks at work. But, I can’t get myself down – just pick myself back up and start over right?

Anyhow, the Zooma Run Love Challenge starts in January and is a virtual race ending around Valentine’s Day with a 5k or 10k (your choice!). The challenge itself has pretty sweet swag (feetures socks – my favorites!, a swanky sweater, and a medal!)  Participants also get access to a private facebook group to connect with fellow participants, an a weekly newsletter, bonus podcast episodes AND a training plan – that’s a lot of perks for not a lot of cost! Want to join me? Sign up here!

What are your winter racing plans? How do you (if you’re a cold weather running weenie like me) keep yourself accountable during the cooler winter months (not that it’s been REMOTELY cold lately)?

Maryland Sprint Duathlon Race Recap

Yesterday I completed my first *big* race of the season and my first duathlon – the Maryland Sprint Duathlon.

I think I can say that it’s official, I’m in love with endurance sports.

Saturday we went up to Western Regional Park out in Howard County to get my race packet and get a lay of the land. I had no idea what the course had in store for me, and no idea what to expect in regards to the race.  We got there shortly before the race chat, so I sat in on it which was incredibly helpful. While I’ve done a couple of triathlons before, I’ve never listened to the prerace talks so my familiarity with the USAT rules is minimal at best. I also found that listening to the course description gave me an idea what to expect – also helpful.

Sunday, we got up stupid early to head out. I was worried about race traffic since not anticipating race traffic has burned me before. Also i wanted to have time to get set up in transition and not be rushed. We got there around 6:15/6:20 – no traffic, no backups, not parking hassle. Incredible!

MD Sprint Du

Run 1 and T1

The first run was a bit downhill going through the park, onto a trail and then down a road with a short out and back turn around then up a hill back to transition. I picked up new sneaks from Charm City Run the other day and while I know you’re not supposed to run a race in new sneaks, it was really nice having only minimal calf pain and having a better understanding on what’s going on with my legs (it all makes sense to me now…consider my beloved Newton’s retired for the most part 🙁 More on that later!). The weather was perfect, and it was super nice having the chance for water/gatorade at 3 spots.

Saw hubs and little man as I ran into transition and grabbed another cup o’ gatorade.

My transitions are not fast, and I really need to work on them

Run time: 21:36
Transition 1: 3:30 (!!!!) 

Bike and T2

I’m still not super confident on my bike. That’s just a fact. Downhills make me anxious (i’m afraid of crashing) and I’m not at all used to clipping in and out yet. BUT! I am getting better.

I got my tires pumped up before I headed into transition (good thing since I was apparently flat!!) and had the bike dude check out my pedals –  I have a clip that’s bent because i got my cleats stuck when i was working out on the trainer earlier this spring. It should be an easy fix, but I need to bring them to a bike shop to get fixed but I can still get half clipped in and fully clipped in on the other foot. I need to get this fixed ASAP since I noticed I had some pain in my right foot that I think is related (as in did not have on the other foot that was properly clipped in).

The bike was awesome. A bit hilly but some awesome downhills. I passed a bunch of people and didn’t finish DFL so I felt really good about that. I only dropped my chain once, but I fixed it and it remedied this annoying clanking sound that I was having. I should have sipped more of my fuel but I kept forgetting and by mile 10 I was a little crampy likely from dehydration. Note to self: practice drinking while on the bike.

I should probably read up more on bikes and/or go to some clinics so I learn the basics… how to change a tire. How to know your tires are flat. You know…the basics.

Again, transition took me a couple of minutes – so I need to find a way to be more efficient – especially as I change my shoes.

Bike: 1:00:38
T2: 3:20

Run 2

The second run sucked. While the first run was largely downhill, when that course gets reversed that means a large part of the run is up hill. Thankfully – it was only two miles. A slow and hot 2 miles but only two miles so the suck time was only 2/3 of your average tri.

Run 2: 24:48

Chip time: 1:53:54.3

What I liked about this race

Beautiful location
Open course but no traffic so it felt closed
Not a crowded race
Awesome medal/race shirt
outstanding support – each time I stopped on the bike someone pulled up to ask if I was okay.

What I didn’t like about this race
Early race at 40 minutes away from me = earlier morning.
ALL OF THE HILLZ.

Would I race again? Abso-effing-lutely – Sign me up for 2016 for sure! Many thanks to the fine folks at Rip It Events for putting on an amazing well organized and overall fantastic event!

Five Things Friday: 2015 Races

I recently created a spreadsheet to list out the races I’m hoping to complete in 2015 – for budgeting and planning purposes mostly. Also because I do love me some Google Spreadsheets.

So I figured to get back in my blogging swing, I’d share five 2015 races I’m pumped about!

2015races

1. St. Michaels Half Marathon

Would you believe me if I said I haven’t run a half marathon since before I was pregnant with Ethan? I registered for two – DNS’ed Baltimore Half in 2014 after deferring in 2013. I also registered for the Zooma Half in June 2014 but dropped to the 10k. I’m really looking forward to the St. Michaels Half – I’ve heard great things about it and have heard it’s prime for PR’s – I’m chasing a sub 2:15 half so I’m hoping this is the course for it.

2. Iron Girl Columbia

I registered for this one the day it opened – I’ve heard fantastic things and I’m really looking forward to more tri’s this year so I’m pumped to have this on my calendar!

3. Across the Bay 10k

I LOVED this race this year and while I bought someone’s bib off them at the last minute, I wasn’t officially registered. This year, I’m going to officially register and get it done. It’s ripe for a PR since the 2nd half is largely downhill so if I train right, I want to chase that sub 1 hour 10k.

4. A TBD Metric Century OR Century Ride

Originally, I had planned on the Bike to Beach Century from Baltimore to Dewey. Unfortunately, hubs has drill but I’m still on the prowl for a metric or full century ride. I was stoked to receive a bike trainer under the tree at Christmas and I have a plan for a long distance ride like this which relates to my goal/plan of doing a Half Ironman in 2016. I’m just still researching which one I want to do that’s not too far from home, not SUPER hilly, and fits into my summer/fall schedule.

5. Maryland Olympic Duathlon

I’ve never done a Du but I’m pretty excited for this one since I have it on my list of 2015 Fitness goals to do an Olympic Tri but even if I don’t find the right Olympic Tri, I think an Olympic Du would be a lot of fun (swimming is my least strongest sport so this might work out well!)

 

What races are you looking forward to in 2015?

Race Recap: Foam Fest 5k

Recently, I completed my first adventure/endurance race and holy….eff…was it hard.

I mean, there are hard races (like the one I ran Sunday in Baltimore that was a bit hillier than I was prepared for) but then there are races that just challenge your endurance and make you leave everything out on the course. Those races can be marathons or they can be endurance 5k races. Regardless of the race that challenges your endurance and confidence as an athlete, the Foam Fest 5k was that race for me.

It was a good race – the Foam Fest 5k course was challenging enough, it looped through woods (wowza hills!) and up and down motocross jumps on a dirt path. We started by running through a massive pile of foam.  Woo?

{via}

The obstacles seemed pretty standard for a mud run/endurance race based on what I’ve heard – army crawling through mud (gross. I was so grossed out), over/unders on logs, walls that you climb over, you know the drill.

It was pretty well organized with some solid volunteers kicking around. I was late for the race because it took us longer to get down there than we anticipated, but jumping into another wave wasn’t difficult – they started about 10 – 15 minutes apart. However, as I’ve heard from many others who have completed other endurance runs, I did think that there was a lack of volunteers on the course with many obstacles not having any supervision. Although I personally never felt unsafe, I can see how if someone was a newbie, they could certain feel like something was lacking with the race.

The course it self first sent us through a dirt motocross track for about the fist mile, into the woods, there were a couple of inflatable obstacles that were fun but nothing challenging.

There was one obstacle that held us up for about 10 minutes or so – annoying – it was when you had run over a foam bridge over a pool of muddy water. Of course I fell. Of course I did.

The course had a couple of more obstacles in the field area before we headed into the woods for a good mile and a half with a few obstacles (spider web, army crawling) along the way. We came out of the woods around mile 2-2.5 for a few more inflatable obstacles and a couple of ropes challenges which were…okay…but kind of cheesy at best.

It should be noted that my lululemon cool racerback tank top grew in length about four inches because of the water. Thus looking like my shorts were MIA.

We finished off after a massive slide that totally scared the pants off me. I’m afraid of heights so I definitely had breathe deeply for that one.

All in all, it was a really fun, challenging race. But there were tons of walkers, groups and people of all levels so it was an all-levels race. Definitely, no matter what level you are, go in expecting to run for time.

Unfortunately, Foam Fest has since gone bankrupt leaving a lot of people out of money (the race wasn’t cheap!) and angry – understandably so.

All in all, it was  fun day. It would have been a lot more fun had I ran it with a group of pals. It’s definitely an all-level kind of activity – no one is going to make you feel bad for walking up hills or struggling through obstacles. Everyone was super supportive and the volunteers were great along the way (when I saw them. there didn’t seem to be an over abundance of them).

Have you ever done an obstacle race?

14 races for 2014

Y’all, I’m ready.

I’m ready to sign up for a “goal” race or two. I hate using the term goal race, but I miss training. I miss that sense of dedication, organization to my life, something that benefits me. It’s a new year, which means new races to register for!

I don’t get a lot of me time, and running really gives me that balance in the summer and the fall that I crave and need. I’m a better mama-bear and wife when I have that healthy balance in my life. The only problem with that is, I need to be in training for something to run otherwise I have a really hard time with motivation. I love running, really I do, but unless I’m actively training for a race, I can always think of 1,001 things that I should do before I do something for myself like running. Double edged sword really.

But you know, once this polar vortex gets out of dodge, I’m looking forward to some brisk winter running. After all, we’ve got the Bob, we’ve got the Bundle Me so if it’s 40 degrees or warmer, I’m not afraid to take E out running with me. Otherwise, he’s gotta stay inside – especially if there’s wind.

So the races below are the ones I’m intrigued by. The ones in bold are the ones I’m already registered for, the others are ones I’m considering and will be gradually be registering for. A few of these aren’t super expensive, some might sell out before I can get in. But the one to take note of: October 2014 – 4 big race weekends all in a row. Those are my goal races – especially the Baltimore Half and the Metric Marathon. Bring it Baltimore!!

(note: I deferred Baltimore Half last year so I’m automatically registered for this year – booyah!)

Ok mother nature, time to warm up so I can get out there! I am not NEARLY as baller as the lady in my Body Pump class this AM who ran 10 miles yesterday and ran to class today. Nope. That’s not me.
