    great Lake Sullivan 6.41 mi 00:51 07:53 pace

    Easy 6 with 8X400m near goal 10 mile pace

    First run I felt good in a while. Short spurts at goal pace but they felt great.

  2. RUN
    good Rice Trail 5.04 mi 00:39 07:48 pace

    Easy-moderate with Cres H.

    I'm starting to feel a bit more energetic 6 days now after quitting caffeine. I'm making snail progress with plantar fasciitis but, progress.

  3. RUN
    alright TC 10 mile 1/2 course 10.01 mi 01:24 08:25 pace

    Checked out the first 5 of the TC 10 miler. That mile 2 hill is very intimidating.

  4. RUN
    alright Blaine 5.63 mi 00:46 08:12 pace

    Some easy miles with a few pickups

    Foot is a tad bit better. I have been icing, using an ultrasound machine and wearing a night splint.

      PF is tough. I had it in both feet first year of running.

    Nice run with Colin on a nice warm day! I'm working through an injury. I have a good deal of pain on the bottom of my heel. It started in the middle bottom but the entire bottom hurts now. ... read more

      Yup, I think that's it. Hopefully I can get this under control. Sounds like its a tricky one to treat. Thanks!

      If it is PF I'd recommend a night splint for sleeping and always wearing shoes around the house (not barefoot or just socks). But admittedly I've never had full-blown PF. Hope you can get it under control soon!

    good Fridley Track 8.86 mi 01:03 07:07 pace

    2X3 miles at threshold (6:15-6:20) on the middle school dirt track

  13. RUN
    blah The Lakes 12.06 mi 01:31 07:33 pace

    Tried 4X2.5 mile around 10 mile race goal. I wasn't feeling it today and pulled the plug. Maybe another try in a few days.

      Nearly 5 miles at under 6:10 pace doesn't sound like a fail to me. I'm not sure 10 miles at that pace was achievable in the first place: the hardest I've ever done is 3 x 3 miles or 7 miles straight at around HMP; no way could I have ever run more miles at a faster pace. You're in fantastic shape; you don't need to kill it on every single workout!
