I dissed the Route 66 Marathon 1/4 run this morning in order to attend the OKC LandRunner training run. Today’s run was at Stars n Stripes park (Lake Hefner). We ran 6 miles and I sweated like I ran 10. Actually I was pretty impressed with the turnout. Not too bad for a training run that has been deemed minimal in comparisoon to the spring marathon training group.
Saw familiar smiling faces. I mostly kept to myself this morning. Didn’t have any of my running crew with me. I hope to have them join me in some of these runs soon. The best news of the day came when I met with Dr. Coniglione after the run. He worked me over and thinks alot of my problems stem from a lack of stretching. My quads were a knotted mess and he worked me over pretty good. Must say, I do feel better now. The groin still hurts some but the quads are feeling better today than in a long time.
On the agenda….Right now I have a few races scheduled for late August. Running with the Bulls in OKC and then a one mile mud run in Tulsa is slated for Aug. 22.
I do have an eye appointment on Wednesday. Hope this will mean that the surgery will occur soon thereafter.
Don’t be surprised if I start talking about a bike really soon. I’ve been looking at road bikes. I would like to use the bike to crosstrain. I will let you know. That is all I have to say for the day. 15 more weeks of training.
