Goal:

To run a national-level half and then move back up to the marathon. I have smaller goals along the way, but they're not very interesting.

    great 3.5 mi 00:28 07:55 pace

    3 + strides, starting slow and picking it up, feeling good

  2. RUN
    good Wednesday Practice 9.5 mi

    With 6 x 400s with 2:00 rest alternating relaxed and fast. Ran 81/79/81/80/81/80. Feeling pretty sharp to race this weekend.

  3. RUN
    good 7.5 mi 01:00 08:01 pace

    Starting at 8:20 and getting down to 7:50, with strides at the end. Feeling good but a little stale from the massage.

    light strength

  5. RUN

    Very tired but running well

  6. RUN
    good 14 mi 01:55 08:11 pace

    Redmond Watershed. Cut it a bit short to be careful about the toe. Still got in a good run.

  7. FIT
    alright Stationary Bike 4.6 mi 00:23 05:00 pace

    Not doubling on my first day back, so easy "shake-out" on the bike. I was really tired, sleeping all day, and this actually woke me up a little. Good thing next week is inherently easy si... read more

    alright Strength

    Modified, nothing that would potentially strain any of the sore muscles from spinning or hurt my toe.

  9. RUN
    alright Saturday Practice 10.5 mi

    With a 6 mile flow. Took it kind of easy since it's my first day back, but was so sore from spinning it didn't feel that easy. 5 at 6:50 into 1 at 6:20. Hammies and glutes sore. Toe 2/10 ... read more

  10. Note to self: Class didn't feel too intense but gave me hematuria so I probably was trying a bit too hard for a Friday

      It's when you pee blood, sorry for the overshare. It feels badass the first time it happens because it's like a scene out of Once a Runner, but it gets old.

    Coach wanted me to take two days off. Spinning class. Toe feeling a lot better already thanks to joint mobilization exercise PT sent. This was fun but the leaderboard made me feel inadequate (I thi... read more

    Big toe hurts and is making creaking noises. Did the elliptical and bike. Hoping to knock this out quickly.

  13. RUN
    blah Wednesday Practice 8.75 mi

    Not the worst day ever, but I definitely have allergies. With 3.5 miles at about 6:16 pace (supposed to be a little faster) into a mile at 6:12 (also supposed to be faster). Choking on mucus the wh... read more

      Still, almost 5 miles at faster than your goal HM pace is nothing to sneeze at. Ha! Sneeze! Allergies! Get it?

    good 5 mi 00:41 08:15 pace

    Easy AM run

  15. RUN
    good 6.5 mi 00:52 08:01 pace

    6 + strides. Heckler of the Year Award goes to the guy who humbly apologized for his off-leash dog chasing me and then yelled "NICE ASS!" as I ran off.

      Number one pet peeve is owners who let their dogs off their leashes.

      That really ups the ante. Haven't heard of that combo before. I had some ladies in car yell some nasty things out the window once, and then get offended when I flipped them the bird.
