Allot went on today! I have to wonder, sometimes, what is wrong with me. Friday my wife and I will drive to San Jose and then San Francisco to talk with my Grand Aunties about my family history, the rest of the family will remain in San Diego since we are only going to talk to my mothers side of the family.
So while my son is eating his breakfast, what do I do? I get on the computer and sign myself up for a Half Marathon Trail Run in San Jose. Here’s the situation though; It’s going to take about 10 hours to drive there so that means that I will have to drive straight to the race! This is of course after work Friday so I will be tired; didn’t think about this when I registered and paid for the run. To make things even more interesting this run is supposed to be my ‘qualifying run’ for the Disney Marathon so that I’m in the gates and not stuck in the back with all the people dressed as Peter Pan, Mickey, Mini, and the Seven Dwarfs.
I guess not being fully awake my brain was not functioning fully; why would I chose a Trail Run to qualify for a road race? LOL Oh Foolish Mortal. All I can do is have fun with it and do my best 🙂
Yesterday I decided to get my legs massaged, I think she rubbed me wrong. It like the tendons hurt in the lower back side of my right leg; I ran 3 miles today and was in pain; not so bad that I couldn’t run but painful none the less. I’m hoping this will not be an issue on my trail run. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Ran 3.34 miles in 33:01 minutes with an avg. Pace of 09:53/mile. I wanted to keep the run short so that I didn’t burn my legs out before Saturdays run. It’s also better since there is the pain I mentioned before.
