30K on Saturday

Monday, February 23, 2009

This weekend I ran a 30K to see where I was at with my Boston training. It was at Fort Story, here in Va Beach. It had some hills, but I don't know how they compare to Boston. Probably relatively small. The distance was 18.64 miles, but my ipod nike+ read it as 19.99 miles when I crossed the finish line. I wanted to run the entire thing. I almost did. I walked through 2 of the water stops, about a minute each, then took off again.
After this run, I think Boston won't be as painful as I thought it would be. It will be overwhelming, because its Boston, but I think I can handle it. Using this run, my friend Molly figured my Boston time to be somewhere around 4:45, and she thinks I can push and get it in 4:35. That's pushing, but I am going to try.
Today is Monday, and my legs still hurt. My calf feels like I have a residual charlie horse. No running today. I'll hit the hydromassage and the sauna, and if they can fit me it, I'll see if anything needs adjusted at our SportsMed clinic in the gym.
