I shortened the run today. After about 2 miles, I felt a twinge in my IT Band. I was kind of ignoring it, then thought better. So I ran 5 miles and got a nice stretching session in. I have really neglected my stretching, feeling guilty for getting home so late after run/races, and haven't been paying enough attention to that.
I tried to do some logistics planning in the middle of my all day meeting (full attention wasn't needed..) and realized I have no idea of what the weather will be like in the mountains of Virginia. And the race is a week later than before. So I will probaly bring about 4X the amount of race clothes with me, so I have all options covered!
Yeah. And it's almost taper time. I think that will begin after my final fall race, the "Stomp the Grapes" 1/2 Marathon.
