Decided to jump in the run like health 5k. I wanted to see how my foot would respond to some fast running.
On the injury side, I started to experience some tightness with about a half mile to go. I felt my foot tightnening up on my evening run and stopped to stretch it each time. I'm not sure if it was the shoes or the fast running or not icing before hand. I'll have to figure that out in the next week.
On the racing side, it was actually a race this year as Fritz showed up. He took an early lead and I was having some trouble staying with him. I kept surging to stay in contact. At about 1.5 miles, he suddenly slowed down and I took the opportunity to throw in a very hard surge on an uphill. I kept a 10m gap until close to the end when I threw in a very fast last quarter to open up a 70-80m lead.. I stayed quite relaxed during the second half of the race as I was worried about my foot. I felt pretty good when I finished.
