Ooh yah so balmy right now
My leg felt good the whole way! I’m noticing my fitness losses (ran at 9:22 pace, felt tired) but that also could have been due to the 87% humidity here in ATL today.
On my honor I will do my best to be a better runner; to watch out for cars and increase my mileage gradually; to run in the rain, without boast or complaint; to not go out way to fast; to eat right, listen to my body, and, one of these days, volunteer at a race.
Stretched and rolled out my legs and had a protein shake - yay paying attention to recovery!
Or just never hit snooze.
Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.
DID NOT SHATTER FEMUR. My right leg feels surprisingly good today. Yay healing!
My qualifier placed me in start wave B in a race that goes up to wave Y - so with my femoral SFX I really had no business in my start wave. It was really frustrating not being able to challenge myself in my wave!
My friend and I made a pact and accepted all beer offered to us in an effort to “not take it too seriously”. We succeeded in both of these things as I drank beer and ran my worst 10k time ever at 64 and change. Personally, since I basically sat on my butt for 3 months and didn’t even get winded during the race, I guess I’ll count it as an overall win.
The Peachtree RR is an awesome Atlanta tradition I’m thrilled I had a chance to run. It’s a shame I couldn’t race it like I wanted to, but it still made for one of my best July 4ths ever!
