Monday- am 3 mi, pm 7.5 track 1600, 800, 800, 400, 400. 4:59, 2:35, 2:35, 70, 70. Good work out. I was hoping to run 5:00 pace for the 800's too but they were pretty tough. I was planning for four 400's but my hip was starting to get a little tight by that point. It's been feeling great during my easy milage, but when I try to do any hard work it gets very sore for a while afterwards. I wanna run some indoor though, so I'm gonna try and just do my work outs til it hurts and then cut it there.
Tuesday- pm 5.5 easy. My legs were tight as hell after the speed work out on monday, I ended up having to stop and stretch three or four times. Glad I ran though, because there's only one way to break up the shit in the legs.
Wednesday- 7 miles, Liberty Hill loop. Felt better than monday, but finished the loop about 7 or 8 minutes slower than usual. Still sore from the work out but getting better.
Thursday- 7 miles with Abbey. Went down to Edwards St. to look at christmas lights. It was a nice fun relaxing run. Finally feeling better since Monday's work out. (had some issues going on with my peroneal tendon on the run yesterday. During my push off i would feel a sharp pain that was really reducing the strength of my push off on the left leg.)
Friday-3.5 miles. It was a long day at work, but I got out the door for a shake out run around 9:30 pm. I was planning on racing at BU on saturday so I went down to the track and stretched for a while and did some strides and ran home. Felt good.
Saturday- 7 miles. I woke up early and hit the road but it was snowy and I was slipping all over the place on my bald tires, I decided that it was too stressful of a ride in the snow for a meet that doesn't really mean anything and decided to stay home. Wound up running the Saddle Hill 7 miler with Abbey, that's the one with the 30 minute climb to the top, felt good and managed to get a pretty good run in. I was pretty dissapointed I missed a good day of running, but I'm getting snow tires on this week and so hopefully I'll make it down to boston this weekend.
Sunday- 0 miles. Work 9am-10pm oh well.
Total- 40.5 miles. Meant to get a bit more running in this week. We'll see how things go next week.
