|queen mary is at LB|
So, what with Saturday dawning with gorgeous blue skies and 60F temps I just had to test the waters....I went for a 4.75 mile slow recovery pace run...didn't even wear the Garmin. I did a lot of slow *careful* stretching beforehand.
My calf tear was "there", i.e. I could feel it, but it was better than last week. The proof of the pudding will be tomorrow.....how it feels then. If good, i'll do another longer run.
UPDATE: (next day), leg felt good after 3.75 miles..no soreness...just a bit tight so more easy stretches and easy pace...looking good.
But the results are good so far...perhaps may be good to go at LB, at least if we run a nice easy race?
I actually don't mind that, as one current goal is to complete the "California Dreamin' Racing Series", and so being able to make the race at all is goal #1.
And, I have to say, it's not such a bad idea to not be pushing for a PR for once. Instead, just enjoying the sites and crowds and having fun. I plan to take my camera and get some shots, and perhaps even one of Arthur when he finishes.
The extended weather forecast looks great: sunny and mid-50's at the start time and a high of 69 for the day.....but I'll probably be done at about 11:30 when the temps are still below 65, which is fine.
