We are getting closer and closer to this weekends race. Yesterday was my last hard run for the week, I planned to do a 3 mile recovery run today and tomorrow then rest Thursday and Friday. Well I dont think I can even call tonight an actual run. I threw the leash on Buster and away we went. Started out pretty good at a smooth 8 min pace and about a quarter mile in my stomach started to bother me. It was either not enough time for my food to digest or just too much food period, but my stomach was not happy. Made it to the half mile point, turned around and walked back home. 1 mile recovery walk/run.....yikes!!
Well some take aways from this run. Make sure I am watching my meals in conjunction with my run, that could of avoided this whole issue. Pretty much a rookie move right there. My legs are tired from yesterdays hard run, so no need to push it today. Overall I'm taking it in stride, stretch and rest is what I need right now. We will try another recovery run tomorrow before my rest days.
Now back to The Pat Tillman Run. I commented in my race recap that we took some pictures at the event and I got return comments from Mrs Schlub and some readers about not sharing the race pictures. So for the FIRST TIME EVER in the history of The Running Schlub, here are race day photos.
