This morning was the final run over 10k that I will be doing before the 20th. There was some debate whether I would do it or not, as I was standing at the end of the driveway waiting for a satellite lock in the pre-dawn morning I peered first left and the 10.7k route to work and then down to the right at the 7.7k route to work. My eyes lingered a long time to the right but when the satellite lock was established I set out to the left. Running since Sunday has been more of a chore than it should be because I know that there is nothing more I can do now other than make my time on the 20th worse, but I need to turn the legs over. The run wasn’t too bad except that my left ITB is feeling a bit tight up towards the hip, probably due to the fact that I have been slack over the last week with my normally religious post-run stretching routine…I will have to rethink that one…way to sabotage your chances at a sub 2hr HM!
I think I have decided on the Mother’s Day Classic 8k for Sunday’s race rather than the Sri Chinmoy 10k…deciding factor…wait for it LBTEPA…the BLING-BLING!
