Tonight, Jenny, Karen, Tori and I went out for a run from Tim Horton's in Lucan. The girls were only to do a 4 mile run, but I was looking for 5 or 6 miles. I joined them for the first 2 miles, which we did in 9:31 and 10:10, respectively. Then I went off on my own and did between 8:42 and 8:59 for another 3 miles -- still keeping the run easy.
Unfortunately, it was starting to get dark so when the girls drove by at my 5 mile mark, I jumped at the opportunity to get a ride home. Not that I needed any assistance getting home -- I was feeling strong and cool.
Interestingly, when I started the run my right calf was still sore -- particularly after the speedwork and then hockey last night. But after about 2 miles, I could hardly distinguish any pain and now, writing this post, it feels about 98%. I'll have to remember that when the hypocondriac phase appears as we approach the marathon date!
