Hi! My name is Josh. I ran a marathon last week, and it went quite well if I do say so myself. The problem is, I’m still sore (glutes. Or “butt,” as the kids say), and I’m signed up for a 10k and a 5k race tomorrow. I’m pretty sure I won’t do very well, and it’s possible I could injure myself. If I suffer a butt injury, I’ll never hear the end of it. Yes, I said end of it. End. As in butt. I get it.
Anyway, here’s my question: should I race tomorrow?

There you have it, ladies and gentlemen, the inaugural advice column from the wise and mysterious Running Sensei. I shall heed his words, and sit this one out. Good luck, my competitors, and enjoy the freezing rain!
