Adding up the miles

Did another 3.1 miles on the treadmill last night. About a 34 minute 5k which outside would probably get me around 29 minutes or better.

I now have 13.1 miles for the week running. The most I have done in 9 weeks.

I can still walk. The PF is still there but I have yet to have to use biofreeze for pain.

Saturday we are running the Sara Low Memorial 5K in Batesville. This is a hilly race with a lot of walkers so I won't be last anyway. I have no goals for this race, just run and have fun.

In case your wondering Sara Elisabeth Low was a flight attendant on American Airlines flight 11, the first plane to crash into the North Tower, World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Sara grew up in Batesville, AR. She ran track and her team won a state title in 1989.
The Sara Low 5K was first run in 2007. 2008 marks the first season that the race was part of the Arkansas Grand Prix Racing Series. Should be a very moving event.

Sunday plans call for a long bike ride 65-75 miles for training for the Big Dam Bridge 100.

Good luck at the 5K! Getting out there is an accomplishment in itself. I am impressed with your patience.

I am sooooo looking forward to hearing about the 100 mile race!
