PT stretches

15k American Heart Mini Marathon.  Cold (40 degrees) and rain.  Yuck.  My leg hurt, but maybe not as bad as it has been.  Maybe the PT and reduced running is helping.  Since my leg hurt, I decided not to look at the Garmin and check my pace.  This was a good plan and I just ran for how I felt.  The official times are not up yet, but I think I was about the same pace as last year.  The after party was not that great this year.  Maybe due to the weather.  I debated on if I should participate and I'm glad I did.

I thought I was around the same time as last year.  I was actually a few minutes faster!

Ran outside this morning.  Working some statistics on a big database (over 60 million).  The computer takes a while to actually process.  I ran the analysis and then went for a run.  It was just finishing when I returned.  :-)  Leg pain was bad again during the run.  Really glad I have an appointment next week.

Will go to the gym for weights around lunch time.  Need to be in the office this afternoon for a meeting and to pick up the American Heart Mini Marathon packets.  They distribute the packets to companies that have running teams.  I'm the team leader for the Department of Surgery so I'll get our packets and distribute them to the runners.  This works out nice so we don't need to go Saturday to the packet pick up.

Leg pain needs to stop so I can run!
