Jailbreak Dash

Thursday, May 20, 2010

A friend/coworker told me about this race in September called the Jailbreak Dash. It's a 3.8 mile race through an obstacle course, in the height of Texas summer heat. Most of my other friends think I'm crazy for trying... and I agree! But I've already paid so I might as well bust my butt training. Primarily I have to amp up my cardio. Best I can do on a treadmill is a mile at an 8.5 min pace. walked for a few minutes, then busted out another half mile. Another walking break, and finished with another quarter. So 1.75 mi over the course of half an hour. Not a good start :)

On the plus side, and an 8.5 minute mile is apparently pretty decent for someone of my... constitution. Next week I'm going to eke out an 8 minute mile... or die trying :D

Four months to the Jailbreak, and counting.

    Keep it going... whatever your goals are, just keep doing the next right thing.

    And yes.. I do love kicking the weights or intensity up to a higher notch!

    Good luck.

    Trust the process. Do right, things go right.
