Danielle and I did what we had hoped to be a 10K training walk today, but turned into 9. Regardless, we are more than capable of finishing that 10K next Monday!
It was a tough one for me. My shins were killing me for the first two kilometers, and considering I had two rest days, following two extremely light training days that is NOT okay!
Once I stopped and stretched out the legs after the first 2K, things were significantly better for 3-5. Anywhere after 5K it seems is where I start having more issues with the asthma. I took 4 puffs of my inhaler about 35 minutes before we started [once again, possibly missing the optimal window], whereas USUALLY before anything longer than 5K/60 mins I'll do a neb treatment. I'll stick with the neb on race day. I needed the inhaler at 5K, 7K and 8.7K [which I counted as my post-treatment dose]. Once again, WHY is the mystery, and why I'd like to get an exercise challenge test done, to see what's going on in there.
We stopped a few times, one so I could stretch, one so I could get my breathing back in sync, and one so we could get cold water from the casino bathroom sink and pee [in case you cared to know ;)]. If it weren't for the breathing, though, and the initial leg pain, things would have been smooth sailing. So, have to rectify those things for Monday's race.
A little lighter training the rest of the week, Saturday/Sunday off, and I should be good to go on Monday for race morning!
