Yes. I took a day off. On tap was a recovery run, which while I know is important, is not exactly the most motivating type of run to do. So, link that with cold wet weather and the need for a haircut (for my son as well), and you can guess what happened to the run. So it looks like this week will only be a 26 miles of 30. The four miles isn't really going to make or break me. Plus, did I say it was cold and wet outside?
Tomorrow is my 10K. I am a little apprehensive because my back pain flared up today. My last couple of weeks are the first time that I've felt like I've been able to put together a meaningful streak of miles. But those miles are not specific to a 10K. So, I'm hoping that I'm able to put something together that's at least respectable.
I am especially looking forward to post race. I may have mentioned before that I am a native Los Angeleno. Born and raised here. One of the things that comes with living that long in L.A. is a taste for Mexican food. And on a Sunday morning that means Menudo! (No - not Ricky Martin). Now that I'm down south in Orange County (about 40 miles away), I don't get a chance to grab the great Mexican food I grew up with. So after my race tomorrow I will have a decision to make - La Noche Buena or El Tepeyac. Stay tuned!
