So, it's here. After a lot of running and building mileage, the Bolder Boulder is here. I've had a much more successful training this year compared to last year, but I still need my leg to cooperate on race day. I've had a small knot in my calf that I've been treating with Biofreeze and a lacrosse ball massage. I'll be taped up from here to kingdom come, and I have festive Rocktape for Memorial Day.
My one goal is to have fun, since I've wanted to do this race for a while. I signed up last June, not knowing what was in store for me last year. Crazy. I've had a long training cycle, I'd say too long since I'm ready for a break. I needed to start running early so I could report back to my chiropractor, and she could come up with a game plan for strength training and cadence training.
If (big if!) my leg cooperates, I would like to better my time from Tink last year. It won't be a deal breaker if I don't, but that would be extra. The weather is supposed to be good starting Sunday, after t-storms today. The high for Monday had been around 80 last week, but now we're looking at 70, with a low of 48 between Sunday and Monday. I might need to find a throwaway shirt for Monday morning.
