    good self control aerobic miles 10 mi 01:17 07:41 pace

    Amazing weather for running this afternoon. I wasn't sure how this would go seeing as I haven't ran in early afternoon in a while and my legs are feeling yesterday's track workout. S... read more

    good Core/foam rolling 00:20

    Hit the gym after the track for some serious core and foam rolling. I wanted to do arms too....but a good friend and the hot tub won out. Shit happens.

    good UR track session 10.25 mi 01:12 07:01 pace

    Solid Wednesday night track session. Just a note, the newly finished track and turf at U of R is amazing. Didn't go into this with a definite plan and that kind of kept the stress off of it. F... read more

    good Sweaty aerobic miles 7.5 mi 01:00 07:58 pace

    An hour of sweaty, messy, easy miles. Still 85+ at 7:30 when I started, took it nice and steady focusing on relaxed form and trying to breathe easy (which proved difficult at times lol). My allergi... read more

      I'm glad you were able to run with a friend! Not a bad idea to get the iron checked - maybe have a comprehensive metabolic panel done to see if you're deficient in other areas. I hope the calf area settles down for you - that doesn't sound fun!

      That 6:59 capper is some magnificent mastery over the power of the "funk". You're a tough tiger, but it's amazing that you recognize this with the clarity that you do. A SWEET day of training, all things aside, and another brick laid for fall!

      You're probably just tired Laura. You've been running around the clock. You just need some more sleep. Hope you're in dreamland now...zzz
