RE: Cheetahs Saturday 3/15
This will be a quick race report. My inlaws are here visiting. My morning began at 4:45 a.m. I had to drive 1 1/2 hours to Louisville for my race. When I got there at 6:30, I picked up my race packet and then wasted time until 7:45 when I started out toward the starting line. My goal for today's 10K was to treat it as a training run with a slow steady pace. It started off really well. I wanted to keep my pace around 11 minute miles and have a nice comfortable run. I felt really strong and the race was going well until mile 4. The back of my right knee started to bother me a little. It wasn't too bad, but I decided to slow my pace nonetheless. However, by mile 5 I had to do walk/run breaks because I started limping. By 5.5 miles I had to walk the rest of the way. I'm disappointed that I couldn't tough it out the rest of the way, but I fear injury more than my hurt pride. My official time is 1:14:29. Right now I can barely walk, but there isn't any swelling. Also, I can bend my knee fine, but walking and applying pressure to my right leg is painful. Maybe I pulled a muscle. I haven't been to the doctor. I will probably wait until tomorrow and see how my leg is at that point.
Well, that is all that is going on here. I haven't had to chance to see what everyone has been up to yesterday and today. I'll try to get around to that tomorrow. DH will be home tonight instead of tomorrow. YEAH!!
I need to go check on DD. It sounds like she is up from her nap.
WAVES to all my cheetahs!
