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?
