Saturday Jan 20 #

7 AM

Running 10:00 [3] 2.0 km (5:00 / km)

Woke up with my inner left foot being incredibly tight. When I first got out of bed I couldn't put pressure on my foot without pain. I rolled it and with shoes it felt better. I tried out the shakeout because I didn't want to make excuses and thought some movement might help. The first few minutes I had an awkward stride that was compensating for my sore foot but by the end i was regaining some movement and the foot felt looser. I made sure to roll a lot and ice before the race and on the bus. Which thankfully helped a lot!

I didn't know what to expect in terms of time but I thought the time was slower than I am capable of. I thought the race went pretty well. I took the lead which was good but I got out kicked and didn't go with the girl when she made a move with a lap to go. I am curious to know what I could run if I had some girls to help pull me along.

The long bus ride made me motion sick but I was happy to feel better by race time. The hips were tight from sitting but I spent some good quality time with the roller as soon as we arrived. The race went pretty well. We went out pretty fast and I let a gap develop between maxie and I and I wasn't brave enough to make a big move to fill the gap. I was happy when the girls behind me tried to make a move but I held them off and none of them passed me. I need to focus on pushing through the middle and not being afraid to go and get someone ahead. I was happy to run faster than LU but I still don't think this is a reflection of my fitness. I really want to hit OUA standard so I need to just FIJG and not be afraid to be an exhausted lump at the finish line.

Nice long run today. I actually got a good sleep so that was nice. My calves were tight and the bottom of my left foot was a bit stiff when I first woke up but I rolled before I left and didnt feel either during the run. My butt got a bit cold today but other than that I would say I did good job at dressing accordingly. Tried to explore a bit today but I ended up taking us down paths that didnt seem to lead anywhere. Basic was good. I did 50 pushups in a row and all my abs + some extra exercises I like to do. My single leg bows were good, my ankle/foot issues I had are basically gone so my balance and stability has improved.
