Today was the final day of practice for the LA Roadrunners. We did 6 miles. I walked the first five with the walking group I’ve been with the past few weeks, but then I ran the last mile. Again, the body felt a little stiff at first, but I loosened up as I went along. I definitely feel like I could go farther. A couple more one-mile runs, and then I see the surgeon again for a check on the knee. Keeping my fingers crossed that things keep going well!
The walkers in my group asked what I was planning on doing for the marathon itself. I haven’t decided yet. I am thinking of alternating running and walking. I qualified last year to start in corral B, the sub-4 hour corral, but there is no way I could do that this year. I did get the sticker for my bib so I can pretty much start in any corral besides the elite corral. The walkers start in corral D. We do get to start in the first wave - one of the benefits of being in the Roadrunners.
The best benefit is that we get access to one of the levels inside Dodger Stadium, so we have access to a couple extra sets of bathrooms. That is a HUGE advantage!
Wll do either PT exercises tomorrow, or hit the pool again. Then I will walk and run again on Monday. Hard to believe the marathon is a week from tomorrow!
