Cameron YMCA April Fools 8k

Today I went up to Cameron for the April Fools race that I have run for the last 4 years I think.  The first 2 years I ran the 5k, last 2 the 8k.  This isn't a huge race especially for the 8k but a nice quick out and back.  I finished 2nd female.  I did have a time of 35:44 my fastest 8k time by over a minute.  My fastest previous was 36:55 and last year I won this race with a time of 38:06.  Sounds super slow now.

Didn't get a good race picture from the day so this seems like a good replacement.  My aunt Betty who volunteers at the race took us out for a nice lunch afterwards.  

Had super mileage this week after last weeks race.  Sunday after the race my legs were pretty stiff and walking up or down steps was a bit of a chore.  By Tuesday my legs were filling significantly better and I tried out 1.5 miles on the gym treadmill.  Quads still sore but not bad.  Took Wednesday off then Thursday went for 7 miles outside.  A bad mood made these miles seem easy.  Friday off and 8k today.  I'm calling myself recovered.  Planing on upping the milage next week and adding weights back into the routine.
