Had 18 miles with 12 @ MP (6:50) today. Everything was bothering me yesterday and I was just hurting everywhere from the hips down. My feet even hurt so today was questionable. I took my kids swimming at the gym last night and was able to really work the arches of my feet while they were swimming. When we got home I rolled the crap out of everything. I spent a lot of time experimenting and found a whole bunch of hotspots and just concentrated on those areas. Woke up this morning and when I got out of bed things felt fairly good. Decided to give it a go today and if I got out there and if things didn't work out then I would just call it a short easy day. Did a 5 mile warmup and could really feel my upper quad and a little bit through the hips. My shins were a little tight as well but was able to loosen that area up. Went into the MP miles and the first couple it was really tough to get into a groove and from there things started to feel better as the run went along. Was able to get the 12 in @ 6:40 avg pace (6:44, 6:37, 6:41, 6:36, 6:45, 6:43, 6:42, 6:41, 6:42, 6:43, 6:42, 6:32). Had a nice little headwind for the last 8 miles of the run as well. Finished up with a 1 mile cooldown. Any pains I had started to go away as the MP miles went on which was a good sign. Overall very pleased but still need to work on the hotspots. This has been and up and down week emotionally as one day everything is hurting really bad and another it seems ok. Knowing that the start of runs are going to be painful and not knowing for how long starts to take a toll on me as well. I will spend a lot of time this weekend playing around with the foam roller as what I did last night seemed to work out well. I only have one more hard week to get in. Still positive that things can be worked out.
