>Racing>5-K in 2 days?
The Logic of Long Distance
I'm "running" the Boulevard Bolt 5-miler on Thursday. Stupid me didn't realize it was the same week as the monkey when I sent in the entry. I'll echo the advice--get out and run easy today and tomorrow. I ran easy yesterday and feel much better today. Maybe you'll run faster than you think. Different systems. That's what I keep telling myself.
go run a couple miles today. Getting that blood pumping will feel good. The race benefits habitat for humanity so that is cool plus I think I am going to run it so you can look forward to beating me
You're doing the Habitrot? Hmm. That makes it a little more tempting. It was kinda cool meeting some of the folks on here.
One way or another, I think I'll be there, either watching or running. Might actually be fun just to be a spectator.
I was going to preregister to make sure I ran it but registration is closed even though it says it is open until midnight tonight.
You'll ruin your knees!
A certain someone is trying to rope me into a 5-k Thursday morning. At the moment, I'm still hobbling pretty badly. Was planning on a 2-3 mile gentle run tomorrow. Maybe.
So I've got about 40 hours to recover. And I don't really want to run the 5-k if I can't push it. Hard. If it's just going to be a jog, I'd rather hang out and watch her, save the money for something important. Like beer.
So - can I? Should I? Will I run fast? Slow? Will I cripple myself?
I've got 'til midnight tonight to register.
Insert your wisdom here. I'm sure one of you knuckleheads has an opinion. (Actually, I won't be surprised if Trent ran a 5-k yesterday ...)

That is the game plan. I was going to preregister to make sure I ran it but registration is closed even though it says it is open until midnight tonight. I dunno maybe it meant midnight last night. I am not too excited about the 8am start time its going to be cold but I guess I will get over it. The only thing that would stop me from running it is the random lets go get hammered phone call.
I remember those calls. I sort of miss them. (Of course a real man would answer the call ... and then run the next morning anyway ...
From one k-head to another...sign up and run it with her! How hard is that to figure out? You'll be the hero, running a 5k...with her...when you were barely able to hobble after running your marathon PR through a bunch of crap-slinging monkeys! What a man!
My $.02...for you, $.50!
Beer can be an integral part of your training nutrition.
hmmm drive to franklin and save $5 and lock my self into not skipping....hmmmm hmmmmm hmmmm
i just don't know
it is so tempting
And scout i get my weekly intake of beer no worries
