Some of you folks should have come out to run/watch the capital hill classic 10k this am. One of the great races in the area and runs though the hill. Heck, I was out frolicking last night and did not run once last week but was not going to miss it.
Got up at 5:30 with a tight right leg and proceeded to loosen up. Ate some French Toast and listened to Jame Brown. I was certainly not in the mood to do a race but images of the generic "warrior" athlete kept appearing in my head and said to myself, the show must go on.
Took off out of the house and jogged to capital hill. Saw homeless and hungover people everywhere.
Got to hill and the crowds were out and about. the adrenaline kicked in and the leg pain went away. Saw Mike(ENERGIZER)Wardian, Philippe Rolly, and then about 10 pacers people. They are everywhere. An army, perhaps.
Anyway, they have recruited mighty Ryan Deak to be on their team so we are indeed, in trouble.
I ran this one to have fun and get some leg speed in. Did the first mile in an easy 5:50 and pretty much maintained with no effort. The breathing was easy and the bod felt strong.
After the race, my gluteus medius(upper butt) tightened up and i had to get the massage people to kill it. Once they did, I could walk.
Eventually, the parts will come back into alignment(i hope). If not, I can always take up Bridge or Birkham Yoga(which i tried and is a great workout).
FYI----Edmond Burke and all of those pacers guys at the race today are running Grandmas.
