All the treadmills were taken when I first got to the gym,
so I warmed up on the elliptical.
Kept the pace at the slow end of the range,
and shortened the workout to save my legs for the weekend.

Calves are still sore.
I tried to trot a bit during the walk,
but it just wasn’t happening.
 
 
I’ve decided to throw out the goal of negative splits for the near future. 
Due to my lack of confidence, going out too fast never seems to be a problem.
I’d rather go out to fast
 (at least for the next few races at each distance)
and know I gave it my all.
 
Will that result in some less-than pretty races?
Sure.
 
But at least I’ll feel confident about my effort,
and be able to know I left nothing out there.
