no more good pain

March 4, 2008

When it’s the week of a race I usually can’t wait for it to come.  Right now I want more time.  After my little tooth surgery on Monday I haven’t been feeling great.  I’m optimistic that I’ll be fine for Saturday, but I usually like to feel good leading up to a race.  The pain in my mouth that appeared an hour after the surgery was very intense. I didn’t think I’d use the prescribed pain killers, but I had to pop a couple yesterday afternoon.

I did get a good workout in on Monday morning as I was forced to do it before the periodontist.  That was probably a good thing as I’m not one for feeling good on morning runs and this 15km starts at 8:30am.  I don’t race on the roads much and track races are mostly in the afternoons or evenings and I train accordingly.  My last two workouts have been in the morning, so hopefully that will help me get used to it for this weekend.

It looks like there will be good competition… (
