I concentrated on a good, even pace and focused on my breathing. At the half mile point I could feel the burn in my lungs, but I continued to push. At 3/4 of a mile I went faster, pushing my legs to move in larger strides. As I came in for the mile, I decided that I felt good enough to go one more time, so I continued. I managed to complete both miles in 13:37. I did not have any problems with my calves, but they did feel tight, so I took The Stick and rubbed down the calves until all tension and tenderness was relieved.
It felt good to get in that run. Now I just look forward to the results on Sunday. This has to be the cleanest eathing week I've had. There have been some issues on certain days where the calories probably should've been higher, but overall a great nutrition week.
