    I hit the track tonight for a ladder workout. I ran well but after my upper glute was quite sore. I'm not sure what the deal might be so I have made the decision to rest completely tomorrow.... read more

      Nice run! You just keep getting better. I wish I would have run when I was younger.

      Having run for so long definitely gives me good perspective on my ability. There have been so many great memories and relationships built in this sport that I love. I will keep running as long as I can.

    The best parts about this morning's run: 60s and low humidity and hot air balloons flying overhead as I ran. So cool!

      Sara I understand your frustration and how you have great goals. Keep your head up! We all have better days than others don't be too hard on yourself! You still did a great job and finished it out where others may have given up.

      Way to hang in there! Perhaps with the importance that speedwork serves you at least can negotiate avoiding traffic with your coach; possibly a less traffic prone course can be chosen--or a track is available? Simulating conditions is one thing but no race will be stopped by traffic.

      They can't all be great workouts. You are an amazing runner don't forget that!

      Thanks all! Each of you made great points. You can't get hung up on any one workout because, as you say Kraig, they can't all be great. Stephanie, my coach actually said something similar to what you did about finishing when others usually give up. To your point Paul, sadly my coach's office is not near a track and since he has clients after me, we can't leave to go to one and make it back in time. We were on a nice paved trail most of the time but got caught in two spots with traffic.

      Gotcha. Makes sense about setting the treadmill up but I have such a hard time on a treddy when you start dipping down into the low 5's.

      I've never had to go that fast on one but I imagine it would be tough.
