Sign Rattling!

The wind was so strong today stop signs were rattling and shaking! Crazy!! It seemed like the wind was in my face the whole time, too!
I was worried about how the body would respond to the MP run today with the hip and leg soreness. Two 6 mile loops stopping at home once for a power bar and water.
Loop one-54:52.54 (first mile warm-up 9:54) -8:58's
Loop two-53:47.39-8:57's

I am pleased with this because I was hoping to string a bunch of 9's. A good effort. I feel good.The leg and hip is sore and tight. Took an ice bath. I think I may live! Now on to week two of the taper! Tomorrow off! Logged 32.6 miles this week. I will put in only 24 next week!
Good luck to all who are racing this weekend! Bob, Carlee, hope it goes well.
Peace!

thanks! We've had crazy wind too; i keep picturing the power going out while the uconn game is going on...I think we'd have a riot.
