|Well, it is about time I got around to saying something about last weekend.
Summer has happened to NYC in a hard way and Sunday I awoke at 5am to temps already in the low 70s. Managed to get everything together and head out to the subway to meet Chelly at Central Park.
The race was pretty uneventful. Except for the weather, which had the temps in the high 70s low 80s, I can't say much about it. I ran an easy pace - 9:15 with a finish in 46:15. I was really spent by the end. No sprint at the end this time.
Tuesday nights is my running club's track night. Amazingly, on the track, I manage a sub 8 minute pace. This week, however, I think all the racing has caught up with me and on the second 800m I felt a pain in my left knee/lower thigh. Not sharp like I tore anything. I think it just tightened up badly. I quit for the evening and tried to stretch it out. I did a 3 mile run last night and while there is still an ache, it doesn't seem to be hurting too much. I won't be racing again until July 4, so hopefully, that will rest it enough. Because we got a jam-packed July coming up!
