Running LogDistance: 10 miles
Comments: A big ten-miler as the last major long run before the race. Felt good and strong the whole way so I'm hoping to have a good outing in two weeks.
Started a bit late. Damn chilly this morning and I really didn't want to brave it. Things warmed up pretty good by mid-morning so by the time I got out it was about perfect for running (a bit dry tho).
Stuck to the concrete sidewalks. Although the dirt track has helped alleviate the pain in the quads I wanted the distance measure of these mile-long blocks and a bit of conditioning. Went well although I'll probably head back to the dirt track for the majority of the runs leading up to the race.
Also, I've now put in more miles in the past two weeks than I did in the two months prior. So I guess I should count my blessings that the only problem has been the tender quad muscles.
Hour: 11 a.m.Injury update: Every thing felt good and no unsual soreness afterward.
Temperature: 50 degrees
Humidity: 36 percent
