8 miles. sunnyside up. a few days off and a whole lot of ice massaging seems to have done the trick.

my knee and shin still felt a little tight/sore this morning, but it was nothing like last week when i couldn't even run without a limp. i just have to be very careful this week, and not do anything crazy until saturday. 

*it should be noted that there are now two great harvest bread stores on my sunnyside route. (9th & 9th and 21st & 21st). just when i get away from the ever so tempting smell of freshly baked bread in one direction, it starts wafting from the other direction. makes me hungry.

7 miles in the chilly march wind. brickyard loop -- saw merri. shin is feeling much better, but not 100%. 

PM:  weight lifting fun with james -- plus plank, fire hydrant, eccentric calf raises, symbiotic single leg squats and a bunch of other stuff that i was doing wrong because i have weak hips. all in due time.

9 miles. sunnyside down. a chilly wind picked up about halfway through -- the temperature dropped from 55 to 45 and my hands definitely noticed. more snow is coming...

Race: Running of the Leopards 5k (3.1 Miles) 00:17:52, Place overall: 5

running of the leopards 5k this morning -- a fun, fast, mostly downhill course (sunnyside down!). the race started at this is the place park and finished on the track at east high. it was extremely cold and windy at the start ('this is the place'), but luckily it was a tailwind -- i.e. more aid.

5k's are hard, but even more so when you aren't fit and you try to run like you are. i haven't raced in over three months, and my winter training has consisted of slow base mileage and zero speed work. i was not prepared for this. i was sucking wind and eating dust before i was even 1/2 mile into the race. however, it was nice to be racing again, and it gives me a good starting point for the racing season ahead.

after the race, james and i went to the field house to workout -- weights, fire hydrant, plank, dizzy spells, etc. now i am being very productive at work by writing a race report and ice massaging my calves and shin. i hope no one walks into my office unannounced. 

thanks to bill cobler for putting on a great race.
