4 mile test run

I got in 4 miles this morning to test the leg. My foot feels good but my right calf and hamstring are tight. I think it is something that should loosen up with time. I might try one more run this week, we'll see.

Good news is I only gained 2.5 pounds this week with less running. I weighed in this morning at 167.5.

Monthly total for November was 146 miles!

Forecast still the same for Sunday. 60% chance of rain with temps from 37-57. Looks like rain is almost certain.

Race week preparation checklist:
1. Make sure all laundry is done for needed running gear.
2. Get a haircut.
3. Trim toe nails.
4. Get lots of sleep.
5. Drink a litte more.
7. Don't do anything stupid!

Glad to hear that your foot felt good. I really like item #7 on your checklist. I am looking forward to racing this Sunday. Since this will be my last marathon for the year, I am going to "let it rip"!

Are #s 2 and 3 to cut down on wind resistance? I know with you speedsters every little bit helps...

I love running in the rain. I just hope it is not windy rain!

Unless the wind is behind us!
