Race and Injury Update

So the Jamestown Run got snowed out! That was a bit of a relief, I can't lie. I really want to do well there and the hamstring is not 100%. Maybe around 70% or so. I can't push it until it is good. It doesn't even feel right. So they will reschedule the race and hopefully that will give me time to recuperate fully and retrain to perform at the level I have been running. Otherwise I will focus in on the Morgan Hill Wildflower Run on 4/10. If I'm good by that one, I will go for the 10K and see what I can do. Main focus now is to be 100% for the Bay to Breakers in May. This will probably be my featured race for the year. It is the 100th running and should be something very special to participate in. Check it out!

Taking it Easy

Sorry that I haven't posted much lately, but I haven't run much lately. I strained my right hamstring in the race in Ripon at the Almond Blossom Festival. I went ahead and run the 5K and jogged the mile at Henry's March at CSU Stanislaus to see if I could, but it didn't feel right. My hamstring tightened all up again, and maybe worse. That was on 3/6. So I barely jogged/walked a mile on 3/14 to test it. That was OK. I'll probably try to go 1.5 or 2 miles today. I want to do the 2 mile on Sat. at the Jamestown Run and forget about the 10K for now. I can do the 10K in Morgan Hill on 4/10 at the Wildflower Run. That should get me ready for the Bay to Breakers on 5/15. I'm taking it slow so I don't keep re-injuring the hamstring and prolong the injury. I'll be back to speed soon. I promise!
