Wanted to ... wait ... NEEDED to ... go longer than usual this morning.. Broad Street is next Sunday, and I wasn't feeling too confident with my 4s and 5s ... I wanted to get "past South Street" in my mind [althought I doubt you'd find any Llamas in South Philly]

 

Rain toggled between Misty and Drizzle the whole way around with a nice Shower at about Mile Four. I expected some fueling issues due to yesterday's Good Friday fast, but other than a couple tummy gurgles ["Feed Me!"] ... no worries.

 

20 minutes Punk Yoga

7 Miles Run

 

32 points for Team Five Guys

8 miles today.  It was supposed to be 20, but I can't get the cramping in my left foot under control.  Supposed to run a marathon in 4 weeks, and it's looking like that's a no-go.  (I've been dealing with this foot issue for months now) Too bad crying isn't an alt workout, because I've been doing that for the past hour.  

 

8 miles = 32 points

30 min stretching = 6 points

total 38 points for team 1

nadra, have you gotten a foot massage?  I have terrible issues with my feet cramping all. the. time. And I found that after a foot massage the cramps stay at bay for a while.  Compression socks have also helped.

I've been getting ART.  It is helping, but not enough to keep me in marathon shape.  I'll look into compression socks as well, thanks.
