They say that hindsight is 20/20 and today is one of those days that the statement rings true for me. After standing for four hours at the Poison/Motley Crue concert and getting to bed at nearly 2:00 a.m., the 5:15 a.m. alarm went off pretty quickly. Suprisingly, I didn't have any trouble waking up and started getting ready to meet Reverend Run V., Chad S., and George H. at the high school track for some speedwork. My legs didn't feel bad as I got ready and I was looking forward to attacking some Yasso 800s after taking a day off to rest the shins. However, as I was doing my daily stretching routine, I started to get texts from the others that they weren't going to run because of the weather. I turned on the TV and looked outside to see that it was sprinkling and decided to go ahead with my plan since I would be soaked with sweat anyway.
When I got to the track, it wasn't raining very hard and although there were puddles on the surface I decided to go on with my plan. I should have known what was in store for me from the get-go as the first few strides were pretty much a hobble. However, as I got going, my right shin/ankle started to loosen up and I was able to get two good 800s in. Then, halfway through the third one, my stomach got really queasy and I thought I was going to lose it. I shut things down as I came down the final straight stretch and turned my watch off as soon as I hit the mileage. I realized that my stomach was reacting to the pain in my right leg. I hobbled off the track and over to my van and knew that I had landed myself on the disabled list for at least a week as I could barely put weight on the leg. So, now I ice, stretch, rest, repeat, and pray for the best. It's going to be hard to take time off knowing that the Erie Marathon and my best chance in the next five years to BQ is just 46 days away, but I have to put that out of my mind and be patient.
Here were my splits today:
400 warm-up: 1:48
800 #1: 2:59
400 recovery: 1:55
800 #2: 2:58
