6 mi. Slow paced jog for 6 miles allows Dr Larivee to see what’s failing and loosen me up as much as possible before the race. I cannot see him after Friday, so I follow the directives and purchase a heating pad and stretch whenever I can. The 6 miles happen very slowly with soreness and with me wondering how I can do the race. I’m not big with drugging it up prior to the event, I think I can run knowing nothing will break and we can fix whatever ails upon return.
