As I am doing my first race today, last night was just a quick easy two miles. The problem is the QUICK part. I ran it one mile an hour faster than I normally go running. Today, my two miles has made me a little bit sore, but my left calf is tight. It’s amazing how poor I am at doing the “Right thing” when I try to prepare for things properly! I suppose the problem is that it was the perfect weather to run.. It was warm, but not HOT. It was a little humid, but not anything abnormal.
Tonight? It’s the “YMCA Corporate Challenge” over at Broome. I am doing the 5k race, and then will be doing the “Team Relay” that is a mile for each person. I have had several people ask me how quickly I plan on doing the 5k – and I have no idea. Last year I ran around 25 minutes, but that was pre-surgery and pre numerous injuries. I will let you know how it feels!
