Saturday I did my last "long" run before the San Diego Rock N Roll half this coming Sunday, June 3. I was on my own for the first half of my workout, as The Husband decided to do a longer trail run instead. I did pretty well keeping my normal pace and intervals going (my Garmin 110 doesn't have the built-in interval timer, so I look at my watch A LOT when not running with The Husband, who has our intervals set on his 305).
I spent the second half of my 5 miler walking with a teammate, who will also be my room mate in San Diego. I noticed afterward that my back was pretty stiff, and the bottom of my two smallest toes on the right foot were a bit sore, but not blistered. I noticed these ailments following the Cowtown half in February as well, and I think it has to do with walking more than running during a workout. Strange!
This week I'm just hoping to get in 2 short runs, probably 2 and 3 miles. I also want to ride my bike, but we'll see about that. I've decided to nix the weight lifting routine until after I return from my race, because I want my legs (and the rest of me!) to be fresh and not experience lingering soreness during my travels and race.
