Shannon & Pam, after months of training, officially became ultrarunners with finishing Way Too Cool 2010 (3/13/10). They continue to run the long distances as they continue to challenge themselves physically & mentally. This is where they post those triumphs and also their tribulations.

Golf day - Shannon

So I golfed today. Had a decent round. Played to my handicap, which is good. I walked the course and let me tell you, I'm so glad that Diane told me not to run 5 miles this morning. I decided to bring my Garmin with me and wear my heart monitor just to see how many miles it is to walk a course.

It took us 5 hours to play as there was a tournament that had started earlier in the day, so the pace of play was slow, which my back did not appreciate. Anyways, I kept the Garmin on my bag, so it wasn't on my wrist, which means I did more distance than the Garmin registered because I would leave my bag to get to certain areas like the green, etc. So my Garmin registered that I walked 4.24 miles. I figure you can round that up to 4.5 with the actual walking I did. My heart rate averaged 104 bpm with a high of 144 bpm (that's probably when climbing the hills I had to hike).

So, I almost put in my 5 miles today :). But, I must say, I am pooped and my legs are sore. I sure hope I don't slow you down too much tomorrow. But I am looking forward to it. I'm going to bed early to get as much rest as possible.

  1. Good job, Shannon! (i tried to comment earlier, but it didn't show up) Try soaking in a warm bath with epson salts. I did that the other night and it really helped my muscles feel better. I think I'll try it again tonight. Tomorrow's gonna be cooold in the morning. Don't forget gloves!
