first race post op on the shoulder. Man I cannot believe what a role your shoulder has in running. Every time I tried getting in a rhythm it's like watching myself in slow motion. My gate was off and twisted. I had no arm rotation. It was frustrating. I did manage a 6:03 pace but my fast miles I couldn't get below 5:29. When I winthis race a few years ago my fast miles were 4:40-4:55 for 4 miles. It was fun to watch Brett Hales tear it up! My first mile was 6:04 which surprised me because I was really breathing hard. It is at 7500' though. I needed this wake up call. Get my butt to work.
