Monday: 5 mile easy (37:12) Knee/shin pain & some bruising (possibly from the Bachelor party)
Friday: Race - Firecracker 4 miler (20:13) - Solid through 2 miles, but shin was too much to bare and made it safely to the finish line. Hobbled back to my stuff and iced.
Sunday: Red Sox game in Boston.
Making sure everyone is on the line.
From a distance.
Started to fall off the pack just before 2 miles. Through 2 in 9:40+.
I'm sure I was over-striding.
Legs look not so much in sync.
