This race which is Saturday offers a 5k, 10k and a 15k.
That is too many options!!
Last year, I ran the 10K and won 3rd in my AG. It was also a PR at the time.
I registered awhile back for the 15K thinking that it would be a good idea. I am preparing for a half marathon in several weeks and technically I should be running 11 miles.
But that was before I had a foot issue at my half marathon and the same issue last weekend.
A normal person would rest their feet.
I am a crazed runner person.
I am seriously thinking of running the 10K instead and then adding on some more miles depending on how my foot feels.
But maybe I should just play it safe and run the 5K?
Next weekend I also have a 15k to run. That one also has a 5K option.
Boy, it sucks when something hurts.
I am hoping it’s nothing serious – Dr Google says everything from calluses to capsulitis…
So first I skipped my training group run on Monday – the first one I’ve missed and I hated to do it.
And then I bought these on sale in DSW
Yesterday, I put a thick moleskin pad on my foot and ran on the track.
It felt fine for the first 2 miles, then I moved the pad and it felt better. I even played 1 1/2 hours of tennis later that evening.
We’ll see how the rest of the week goes…
But don’t be surprised if I stupidly tackle (limp through) the whole 9.3 miles.
And even try to beat my 1:33:23 time from last November…
