Pre-race routine:

Goals: 1) 7:30 miles 2) 7:00 miles.

Normal breakfast of waffles with syrup, coffee and water.
Event warmup:

Walked, jogged and stretched to no avail: right calf that I tweaked last Monday tweaked worse upon first up-tempo stretch of warmup. Contemplated not running at all, but decided to start easy and see how it went.
  • 22m 35s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 16s  min/mile

Goal was 7:30 miles with a stretch goal of 7:00s, so did ok considering my calf issue and starting easy for the first 1/2 mile. I think I was around 7:00 - 7:10 for miles 2 and 3.
What would you do differently?:

Not have to start the race with a tweaked calf.
Post race
Warm down:

Jogged, walked and stretched. Hit the hot tub and took a long shower and stretched some more.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Slight injury.

Event comments:

Fun, very small race put on by my health club. Mainly older runners/walkers, Coupon for 20% off post-race brunch, but I went home.
