It is hard to believe, but my last scheduled race for the year is this weekend, the Melissa’s 10K race in Banff. Not having anything booked between now and the Disney Marathon feels a bit weird, but we’ll see if that changes at all. It is definitely a change from last year when I turned in to a racing fiend in October. My legs are ridiculously sore, in a good way, from the biking and hill work this week. I was looking forward to a nice swim yesterday morning so that they could have a bit of a breather, but we wound up doing a lot of kicking in the warm up. Ouch! I’m heading for a massage after work, so hopefully my legs will be well rested in time to run hard at Melissa’s tomorrow. Tomorrow is a bit of a test to see how well I can push myself through the hilly course and through the inevitable pain. Stay tuned to see if I push through, blow up, or throw up once I cross the finish line!
