now the home stretch

monday

Ran a couple of easy miles, not much else today, due to some soreness but mainly because of a blister on the bottom of the left foot from yesterday’s race.  Could have gone farther but why bother, the rest will help me today more than miles.  Planning on a 5k this weekend, so may test out the legs for a workout in the next couple of days.  

Still feeling good about Sunday’s race (and the nice $250 check for masters placing).  Been on this 1:16 streak for a while, but yesterday’s 1:16 in the wind was different.  The guys I ran along with for most of the race are both capable of 1:13 or better, and the Kenyans ahead of us have run anywhere from 1:04 to 1:06 in this race in the past.  Provided a nice context for my run.  

The past couple of months have been about overcoming obstacles of one sort or another.  Feel like I’m getting a chance to finish the year on a strong note during the next month…
