And just like that. Jack's attempt at making the olympic Limbo team went down in flames.

From Jason: Didn't the hurdles use to do the falling?
I have to tell you that this evening I can identify with this runner. I didn't run my head into a beam or anything like that. I just pushed it too far tonight. With working evenings this week I should get a run in during the day. But I have not been doing that. Instead I have been running immediatly after returning home for the evening. This in and of itself is not bad. It's my approach that is flawed. In an effort to participate in Juneathon I have forgone giving my legs a rest following this past weekends run. I figured it was ok, as long as I kept the runs short. Say around two miles. The problem is that once I start I feel like just knocking it out quickly and being done with it. I have been running faster than before and tonight with only three days into the month I have developed chin splits on my right leg. Usually I do not ache until the day after a run. Tonight I could barley make it upstairs to shower. Making it back down to the computer was not good either. So here I sit with a bag of frozen corn on my leg.(I'm telling the truth) And hey it feels better for know. Tomorrow I will need to make a decision on the Juneathon. Hopefully I will feel better and can just be smarter about pacing myself.
