First run in a week, a nice flat 10 miles in the sticky german heat. 1hr 37 which I think is somewhere near my best. The pacing was all over the place. my biggest worry, other than getting lost was getting run over. I do wish they'd drive on the correct side.
Do any of you know a good stretch for the IT band? The outside of my right knee feels tight and I assume thats what it is.
Wow, everybody seems to be getting through some serious miles. I'm in Vienna just now and I won't get any running this week. Although we're doing a lot of walking and its really hot so its exercise of a sort.
I'm looking forward to reading about folks HM race reports.
I run in the evenings, usually a couple of hours after eating. I've been taking the clif shots that we'll get on the race. I like the run walk option to get me past 12 miles. On friday I took my 9 year old daughter on her bike on lap one which meant a lot of walking and waiting on the hills so I was feeling good for lap two and probably went too fast. I can't actually run slowly because I have to change my gait and it feels wrong. I tend to run at 10k pace most times. My 10k pace is about 50 minutes which is way too fast for 26 miles.
