Last Run at Foothill

Foothill College: Last 3 mile run before we leave for Hawaii.

Foothill College: Last 3 mile run before we leave for Hawaii.

On Wednesday night, Tony and I went for our last run at Foothill until race weekend.  He had actually went on a run earlier in the day, so this was his chill run.  If anything, he was nicely keeping me company as I trudged around the track. I was feeling under the weather and feeling a bit achy, but needed to get the legs moving.  At  the start of my 3rd mile my hamstring was oddly starting to hurt….since we’re tapering Tony recommended that I just take it easy and not injure anything before the race.  So  for the rest of the 3rd mile Tony and I walk/ jogged.  During our walk, we  saw a female runner  just wearing a sports bra and shorts, tho it wasn’t as cold as usually,  I was dressed quite opposite of her…thermals, tee, fleece sweater, warm up pants and beanie. I was starting to think that I was coming down the “chills” and hopefully not a fever…..that night, i pounded down a nice large bottle of  water with  vitamins,  airborne and  Tylenol cold and flu pills.

Daylight (yay!) three mile time trials

March 18, 2009

This was the 1st time, there was still daylight during our weekday, track workout.

This was the 1st time, there was still daylight during our weekday, track workout.

On Tuesday we had out weekday track work out at Foothill. We had just adjusted our clocks on Sunday so it was the first time that there was daylight during a track practice. It was so nice to see the sun on a weekday workout. Fun for today, 3 mile time trials. I’m still like one mile or 1/2 mile behind everyone else. Oddly, my left foot get’s numb starting at the beginning of the third mile. This also happened at the Stanford Treeathlon, hopefully it will go away by race day.  (Tony: 3 miles in 23 minutes; Donella 3 miles in 34 minutes.)
