      @Larry - dude. It's *terrible*. When the MT asked how it was going this week I laughed and told her it was comical bc I can *barely* lift my leg at all. She said to keep going and it'll come eventually....if you want I can email you a link to a google docs file with the exercises she "prescribed" for me. They're quite good. But include everyone's favourite: Bird Dogs. Which, when you do them properly suck. ugh.

      Well, I have noticed that practising in the heat tends to adapt you to running in the heat. Well done!

      What a pain! My parents made me stay in my own bed if I woke in the night. They pointed out quite reasonably that they had responsibilities that required that they get sufficient rest and my contribution, if I could not help, was not to interfere with that.

      Sorry i'm not giving you advice, seriously, just reminiscing. If it helps you, good, but that was not my thought when I told this story. It just came back to me is all.

      Is that what they were doing? Sorry to hear about the rotten sleep. Could it be something he ate yesterday? I noticed some foods cause disrupted sleep. Good work in the heat!

      Where did the training cycle plans fall out? 10K? Half?

      @Rob - half. I am putting my toe in for the half at the moment, as long as my leg continues to hold up. Though I do feel like a bit of a glutton for punishment...but that 1:40 keeps calling, and Coach T hasn't just flat out said "Stop it, B. You're outta yer mind" yet, so we continue. Though he has been feeding me my runs 1 at a time this week. Perhaps bc he's wary of how I am actually doing. I'm not sure....

      Tuck and run! Glad it's working out so well for you. I'm going to have to start using that phrase myself (my also-bitchy left hammy responds favorably to the exact thing you're doing).

      You are taking good care of yourself. There is no rush decide your distant yet. Get back into the rythm of training, then decide.
