Actuarial math is killing me.

The concepts themselves aren’t that hard, but the notation is quite involved; this is really just arranging many elementary calculations in clever ways.

Workout notes: still low energy.

weights: pull ups: 5 sets of 10, rotator cuff, bench press: 10 x 135, 1 x 185, 7 x 170, incline press: 10 x 135
military: 3 sets of 10 x 40 dumbbell (standing), rows: 3 sets of 10 x 110 rows.

run 21:13 for 2 miles (11:07/10:06), bike for 5 minutes, light yoga.

I am not going to pretend that this Sunday’s marathon was one of my best walking marathons. It wasn’t. But aside from my best two (QC in 2002, Rockford in 2009), when one adjusts for age, it was really not much different from my “good but not the best” ones.

When I adjust for age and adjust back to age 30 (using age grading), my “good but not the best” range from 4:59 to 5:10. This Sunday’s grades to 5:06..almost in the middle.

So, it WAS a decent effort. It felt like it was. Ah, but what did I expect? When I was walking faster times, my 20 mile training walks ranged from 4:20 to 4:40. This time around, they ranged from 4:50 to 5:10.

Oh well…back to more actuarial math..
