    Today was the first day for my newest c25k mentees. Since I'm saving my foot for Monday's race, I did my intervals on the bike.

    alright

    20 each lunges, squats, push-ups, dips & a 60 sec plank. Will need to do this 2 more times today for it to really count.

  6. RUN
    good 3 mi 00:32 10:33 pace

    TM miles in new Newton Distance IIIs. Increased speed every 1/2 mile & tried to figure out how running got this hard. At least the shoes seemed ok or at least no worse than anything else I run in.

      wow... I wish you had my new found freedom from the frequent racing trap. In my 1st 3 years of running I bounced form 1 race to the next to the next never really making much progress because I was hoarding finisher medals at the expense of true fitness gains by sabotaging recovery. The races and hard training kept zeroing out my fitness improvements because the lack of recovery prevented for muscles rebuilding stronger after each workout.

      I just took 10 days totally off to avoid an impending stress fracture and in doing so came back stronger than I've ever been. If you run the race, you won't have the best finish though can still make it a great experience in other ways. Just consider the possibility that you could lose more than a year with PF. You won't ever loose your run buddies. No worries there. Just think hard about what it's worth to you & if that race is that important, go for it, then get serious about a long rest/rehab program.

      Thanks Deb. I have just over 2 weeks until the race & I'm not planning to race-race it. I don't believe it's even timed. I'm going to try taking the next 2 weeks off from running & stay away from flip flops to see if that helps. I'm reluctant to go back to the doc because I doubt he'd have any new ideas other than remaking the orthotics & it hasn't been long enough for insurance to cover another pair.

      Are you able to run well after plasma donation? I just read a runner's world article on donating blood and the recovery time afterward because I was considering it. Just wondering if you're struggling because of things that aren't at all in your control. :(

      What's the required pace for the Mackinaw run? Is it really so fast that you can't manage it? Remember - half the run is downhill. And while I completely understand not having the budget for a weekend away - I don't think it's fair to say you "don't deserve" it. We all deserve some time to ourselves.
