Calves are still locked up.</p> Thu, 24 May 2018 06:00:00 Sat, May 19, 2018 <p>Marathon day.</p> <p>Felt ready to race! Started out right on target, felt relaxed and strong. Calves started to feel tight about mile 3ish- no pain in my shin/soleus. Not a good sign, but just stayed relaxed and kept going. Calves kept tightnening up. Bathroom stop at mile 13.</p> <p>Came out of the bathroom and everything blew up. My quad tightened up, but was able to stop and stretch it out. Calves were locked up. I thought about turing around and dropping out b/c I didn&#39;t think I could run for 13 more miles, but since the course was closed and I didn&#39;t think I would be getting out for another 5 hours, I kept going.</p> <p>My calves were locked up the entire race.... I took 5 bathroom stops and threwup 3 times.</p> <p>I have never had such a terrible race....EVER!!!</p> <p>Not sure why my calves locked up like that or my stomach was such a mess, but thinking the stomach flu my girls had the week before may have compromised my immune system (plus all the stress I have been dealing with between work, coaching, and volunteering at school).</p> <p>Oh well. I ended up 9th female and 2nd age group. I think I would have smoked that course. The last 8 miles down the canyon are a nice mello downhill that would have been awesome to fly down. Have to redeem myself next&nbsp; year....</p> Sat, 19 May 2018 06:00:00 Fri, May 18, 2018 <p>easy 2.5 to test out the shin. Felt good. no pain</p> Fri, 18 May 2018 06:00:00
