With a big race Saturday and my foot still aching, this week has been mostly cross-training and rehab.
I really, really dislike cross-training.
So naturally, I was psyched to be able to run five slow miles on Thursday in my new Brooks Asterias. The run felt… terrible. Amazingly rusty. But! It was good to get out there and my foot didn’t bug me too much. My legs are just out of practice.
Friday morning = easy pool jog and strides. The shoes felt good and my foot felt decent too.
8K race tomorrow morning… I think my foot should do okay, but my legs are weak from a lack of running. We shall see….
