At the race this past weekend something was off with my finish time but I chose to be ignorant and went with what I heard ... not what I saw.
When I crossed the finish line I clearly heard the guy call out 56:16, but when I looked at my Garmin it said 57:09. I thought that was strange, but my friend was standing at the finish line and she too clearly heard 56:16. I knew the seconds were out by a bit because I missed the start, but I had kind of wondered if maybe I screwed something up when resetting my watch. Apparently not! :(
The results have now been posted and my official time was 57:16. Darn!! Guess it was wishful thinking that my Garmin was wrong.
I will however record this as a 57:09 though because I did start late. I was doing a warm-up jog to the start line and just as I got close I heard the guy counting down .... 3-2-1. I still had to reset my Garmin, so knew right then I'd be going with the time on my watch, not theirs.
Oh well, so I didn't PR. :( A little disappointing, but it's OK. It's only 31 seconds slower, that's not so bad. I haven't been training enough and (not that I'm making excuses) I'm still plagued a bit with some discomfort in my left hamstring which I had been having treated late Dec/early Jan. I don't seem to have the strength I need for the hills these days. It's not really a pain so much, but there is something there still. I'll be back in early March for some maintenance treatment so we'll see what the doc has to say then.
On a completely different topic .... I made chicken enchiladas last night ... Oh Heaven! I'm not overly talented in the kitchen when it comes to making dinners, but this dish is incredible. YUM-MO! I can only eat half of one, but that just means that I have leftovers for lunch today. T minus 2 hours to me and some deliciousness! MmmmMmmmmMmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!
