This morning I did my first 12-mi run, on the treadmill. I did it at my goal pace, 5.8 mph, so it took 2:04:10. The last 2 - 3 miles were really pretty hard, but I stuck them out. My jumps onto the rails for a drink got a bit longer than usual, and I had one bathroom break. It's nice to know I can go that far - that's almost the half-marathon distance. I've got 13 miles coming up in a couple weeks in my plan.
This afternoon I had a tennis practice with my teams. My legs were feeling a little dead, but I managed to play reasonably well. The best thing is that my elbow didn't really hurt. I wore the sleeve/strap and the soft wrist brace. I put the topical NSAID on before and after, and I took ibuprofen before and after. I've now done four days of exercises with the Thera-bar. The elbow twinged a few times, but nothing bad. Hopefully this is a good sign. I have tomorrow off from tennis, but then I have three days in a row. We'll see if the elbow can do it.
