Saturday-5 mile run; 13 mile bike
Just returned from one of Ryan’s Co-workers calling hours. 38 years old with a wife and children and died of cancer. Suddenly my worries about whether my calf injury will prevent me from running the Chicago half in 2 weeks and Marine Corp Marathon in 8 weeks seem ridiculous.
Since last weeks failed long run I have taken it easy. I followed the advice of my trainer, to run slow and not long distances and when it hurts stop…Uncomfortable is ok, hurting is not. I reminded him of my upcoming races and his comment was “those could be a problem”. Within a half mile it was uncomfortable, but it didn’t start hurting until into mile 4…made it to mile 5 and then biked 13 until Ryan and Sue were done.
I checked and Marine Corp Marathon allows runners to defer their Marathon entry to the following year. The problem is you have to defer by August 31st. I am giving myself this week to decide…Again insignificant…but still a decision that has to be made.
This was one of our last weekends at the lake..it ended up being a pretty lazy lake weekend. Sweet Ginger loves to swim. She made the half mile swim across the lake and back.
