Chiefs win; Bears and Colts clash in preseason

Ok, this is very belated. On Thursday evening, the Chiefs clinched a 3 game series with a 2-1 win vs. a good Bandits team. I got there late (3’rd) and sat with Vickie and Harry.

Very good pitching; QC tied it but the Chiefs got a run in the bottom of the 8’th and held on.

Then Saturday: Bears and Colts.

Oh..the Bears won 27-17 on the strength of a strip/fumble return and a sack fumble return; they also had a 58 yard field goal and controlled the action in the second half. The first half, aside from the strip fumble return off of a completed pass, belonged to the Colts. Kelly and Cain looked sharp in the first half; Bray looked good in the second for the Bears.

But really, the game was secondary to the news that went around on social media that Luck had decided to retire.

That lead to a rather unfortunate situation where he got booed as he left the field (in street clothes)

Oh my…I understand being upset..but come on..stay classy Colts fans.

Workout catch up (again)

I am writing away and preparing for the start of classes. So things might get behind here.

Friday: weights only; rotator cuff, pull ups (5 sets of 10: strong), bench: 10 x 135, 3 x 185, incline 10 x 135, decline 10 x 165, goblet squats: 6 x 30, 50, 60, 4 x 70, military: barbell: 1 x 95, fail with 115, 1 x 105 (hard), 6 x 95, 10 x 80, rows: 3 sets of 10 x 110 machine, hex: 4 x 175, 4 x 215 (hard), headstand, planks.

Saturday: Zoo run run race plus 1 mile warm up, 1 cool down. 29:12 (9:27, 9:53, 9:51). Best time since 2015. Cool weather.

Sunday: walk 5 miles after Indianapolis trip.

The course (which I wonder if it was really 5K, given that the first place finisher did NOT lap me and I was 19:20 at 2 miles) is a sharp downhill, level, uphill, downhill, uphill, flat for 400 meters..and features a lot of twists and turns. It is both interesting and tough to run hard on; sort of a XC on crumbly pavement type of thing.

Tracy finished lap 2 about 30 seconds before I finished so I did her lap with her.

During the race I had caught up to MarySue at the end of lap 1 but couldn’t sustain it..she was to finish 8 seconds ahead of me.

Strangely enough, my paces: 28/80 overall, 14/32 men, 1/3 55-59 M, were not that bad.
