It's been a weird week coming off my trip to the Arnold. I kind of planned it to be a deload/prep week to start my new program on SUNDAY. So, I played volleyball on Monday, then took Tuesday off. This morning I did 30 minutes of elliptical and then 30 minutes of stretching and foam rolling. All that time in the car (about 8 hours each way), and running the 5K. I guess I've just felt tight and needed the rest.
Here's a photo of me during the race. It was flippin cold, and I couldn't get a full breath, which didn't feel good.
I think I look more like a football player than a runner, and I believe that's not such a bad thing
I finished in 22:34. Didn't meet my goal, but not shabby given the weather conditions.
