I haven’t had time to post much lately, but I wanted to give a quick update.
Fundraising update: we’ve extended the date for the Spring Into Fitness Challenge. If you’ve considered signing up, and thought you missed the deadline, we still have a few entries available. Click here to register!
We ran in honor of teammate Zac Talmadge and his dad yesterday. Here’s a team photo:
Yesterday’s training run was long. 18.2 miles according to my watch, and my left calf started seizing up between mile 12 & 13. I’ll describe today’s pain like a golf ball sized lump of agony in my upper calf. It only hurts when I push off with my left foot. You know, when I run… walk… get out of a chair. Things like that.
Coach Sarad says to go get a sports massage. I think it’s time.
I finished the run in spite of the pain, and today, I’m not sure it was a great idea. Yesterday it seemed the right thing to do. I know there’s a chance I’ll encounter something like it on Marathon Monday, and if all I’ve done is quit in the face of adversity, I won’t do well. We shall see how well the strategy serves me!
