  1. RUN
    good Rutherford/Lyndhurst 6.11 mi 00:53 08:36 pace

    2,000 miles this year. Finally reached that milestone. This morning's miles were 9:48, 8:29, 8:42, 8:27, 8:36 and 7:28. Had to make no. 2,000 a quicker one.

  2. RUN
    alright Around town 4.31 mi 00:44 10:11 pace

    Easy run with the wife.

  3. RUN
    good Rutherford track 7.1 mi 01:02 08:43 pace

    Tried out some easy speedwork for the first time in over a month. Did 10X200 and 4X400. Was huffing and puffing on the 400s at 1:42, 1:42, 1:42 and 1:39. A sure sign I need to get my ass in gear.

      What's with these 'slow' 400's, anyone would think you'd think you've just come off marathon training :) Asses and gears absolutely :)

    Hilly, rainy miles this evening. Felt pretty decent, actually.

    Easy morning run to test out the leg, which felt the best it has in weeks. A good sign.

    Legs felt a little better today.

    Leg felt a little better so I decided to try an after-work run. Still having problems pushing off on the right-hand side, but felt a tiny bit stronger on this hilly route. Miles were 7:55, 8:05, 7:... read more

    Still feeling nagging pain in the right leg. It sort of disappeared after the first two miles, but still had trouble pushing off.

  11. RUN
    alright Rutherford/Wallington 7.15 mi 01:03 08:51 pace

    First run since the marathon felt ok. Very stiff start with a decent finish. Miles were 9:08, 8:56, 9:17, 8:56, 8:50, 9:00 and 7:50.

      Thanks, Christian and Philip. It was smooth until the last four, but it wasn't a total collapse. I thought those last four were going to be in the 9s the way I was feeling. So I'll take it as a small victory 😃

    alright Rutherford - around town 3.2 mi 00:26 08:13 pace

    Last run before the Wineglass Marathon. Miles were 9:03, 7:43 and 7:50. Leg was stiff and a little sore, but a couple rest days should hopefully help.

  14. RUN
    alright Wallington 4.21 mi 00:37 08:43 pace

    Mile 3 at hopeful MP. Miles were 9:02, 8:54, 7:40 and 9:01.

    Easy final "long" run before Wineglass. Leg still very stiff and weak, but hoping an easy recovery week is the right medicine.

      The training is in the bag. Your leg will enjoy the break and will recover. That's what tapering is meant to do.

      Glad to hear the leg is better! I think my problem is imbalances too. I read the elites in Boulder do this pre and post-run routine- http://www.coachjayjohnson.com/assets/RT_15min.pdf Been following it this week and it defin helps.

      Tom, this is great, thanks. My doc also have me a list of hip/glute exercises with resistance bands to do twice a day. It feels great to get an answer as to what you're doing wrong, and it feels even better to actually work on improving it.
