Wind: S at 15 mph
course: Ramblewood circle
Running the striders I ran a little harder than usual. My arms felt like heavy weights. Since I began this adventure, I have yet to go into a sprint. That's partly wanting to avoid pulling a muscle, and partly not having a sprint to go into. I felt good going harder today, but, outside of tomorrow's race, I'll run harder.
Humidity seems far worse, but, at 47% is still nasty.
My shins hurt a little. With the race tomorrow, I'm concerned. Today's run was lighter, slower, and hopefully I can recover enough by 7:30 a.m.
The race plan tomorrow is simple:
- Warm-up between a half and full mile.
- A couple of striders
- Start at 8:00 first mile.
- Second mile 8:05.
- Third mile 8:06 or whatever's left.
- Starting a little faster might ease up the jitters.
