I felt fairly good after my race, but my energy level was really low. My body had been pushed pretty hard, and I was feeling proud. However, I couldn't stop thinking about my next race, which is on Oct. 9th, it seems so far away, but it is really right around the corner. I am not sure what my official goal for that race will be yet. I will more than likely wait until about a week before the race to set my official goal. However, I all ready have an idea of where I would like to be for that race, but I need to see how much preparations I can get in before hand. The achilles is still a big concern, which needs to be resolved quickly. I also noticed that I had strained a tendon on the top of my foot that was giving me some pain primarily when I was going down stairs, but I knew that it was nothing more than a very mild strain and would work itself out.
