Today marks the third week of the virtually synchronized training run. I chose to run mine at the Back Bay again, just because it's literally a couple of minutes from me. I did change my starting point, this time at Constellation Street just to make things a little more interesting, plus it affords me an out-and-back course without venturing out towards the bird sanctuary again.
I hopped on the trail, and right away I was feeling sluggish. Damn, fried chicken and rice! Shouldn't eat like that less than an hour before my run. I'm also a bit worried that my back is still sore from last week, and now it seems I have another nuisance. It's that all-too-familiar feeling on my left foot, the one that sidelined me for a few weeks. I'm hoping it's not plantar fasciitis, however it sure felt like it. It wasn't that bad, but it just kinda lingered there. Though I'm not crazy about taking it, Vitamin I will definitely have to be part of my nutritional race regimen on Saturday.
It was hot again, but it didn't bother me so much today, I'm hoping because I've acclimated to it already. With the highs forecasted to reach the 90s this weekend, I sure hope so.
Forgot my camera, so no visuals today, but here are my numbers.
Conditions: Sunny, 75deg. F, slight breeze
Distance: 6.1 miles
Ave. pace: 10:14/mi
My online training buddies also came out to run in their parts of the world at exactly the same time as I did. Check out their recaps.
