5 for 5

I've been like a saint with the stretching and foam rollering the last few days, and it seems to be working since I experienced no IT pain in my left knee for this evening's 5 miler. If I'm good all week, hopefully it won't hurt me again during Saturday's long run -- and then I can also be issued my halo.

Mile 1: 10:21
Mile 2: 10:24
Mile 3: 10:40
Mile 4: 10:48
Mile 5: 10:24

Total Time: 52:40

This week the weekly runs are fives straight across the week. Should be stimulating. Shall we see if my times vary as the week progresses?

But guess what else? I got my Chicago bib# and race info in the mail today! My # is 36421. Seems lucky, right?

nice run and great splits. I hope you'll use garmin so we can see your splits improve!

I could trade you a left knee without IT pain for Chicago if you want to donate your right knee for Marine Corp. (I'm trying to be good about ice and foam rolling too, I hope I have similar results)

I just got my e-confirmation, but I haven't checked yet (because I'm anxious about the number.) Luckily, 36421 isn't prime - in fact, it is divisable by 7 which is indeed lucky if you ask me.

36421 is definitely lucky...

And I'll admit...I have split envy. :) They're so pretty and even!

Marcy said...

Definitely some lucky digits. Better take those numbers to the lottery!

Great job keeping up on that foam rolling and stretching! :-)

Seems like a very lucky number!

Way to be persistent with your stretching and foam rolling. When I was driving home from school yesterday, I saw the middle school boys running, and one of the boys had an IT band on. To me that is just sad. Poor kid!

No luck required... You are going to kick butt :-)

That's the exact number of bubbles in a can of Bud Light, so it's not only lucky, it's a perfect match!

Does the marathon seem more real now? Like it's really going to happen? Sometimes I have a tiny panic attack when I pick up a bib to a race that is a new distance or format for me. Totally unfounded, of course, since our training is what prepares us to accomplish it. The mind just has to allow it.

Split envy, for sure! Nice job. I suppose I'm going to have to look into the foam.

Sounds like a lucky number to me!

I have thought about the clothing dilemma for MCM. Chicago, though three weeks earlier, may be even cooler. I think I will have to go against my instinct and run cold for the first few miles otherwise I'll be overdressed. When I think about running in 50 degrees I think running pants and a wool hat with gloves.
