After the Showdown at Sundown Intermediate Triathlon in March, I spent from April until now getting in the best shape of my life. 3.85 miles into my first serious marathon training run I pulled everyone's favorite calf muscle, the soleus.
I am in good shape though. I specifically chose a difficult six-mile run, the one I used to train for the triathlon and for Ragnar. If I would have been able to continue--it was 2.1 miles downhill from the highest point of the run when I had to stop--I would have finished in about 50 minutes, not even close to qualifying standards, but about six minutes faster than my fastest time ever on that run. Not bad.
I never felt tired. When I stopped I wasn't really even breathing hard. Not sure what to do from here. I guess swimming and biking are an option, but what I really need to do is log some miles.
