Today was filled with excitement as my daughter Amaya’s team was playing in their first playoff game as the number one seed and cluster regular season champions. Watching her play is the highlight of my week. She plays with such passion and energy that is contagious.
I definitely wanted to get my 5K out of the way as they would be playing the late 6:30 game on the other side of town. I knew it would be very late, and that I’d be lucky to get an hours sleep after the game and long drive home. If I still had to run a 5k when I got home, it would not be a good idea.
My 5K run was ok, started out slow but relatively pain free. Still worrying about my knees, I’m really concentrating on perfect running form. I have no room for sloppy run mechanics or “lazy” running.
I did check the mileage on my shoes and they are definitely are in need of replacing as they are well over 300 miles.
Amaya’s team, the Sunridge Lady Eagles won a close game and are onto the next round. A fast turnaround next game is Wednesday with a yet to be determined opponent.
