Sorry for the late update. I was under the weather then in a world without internet/phone reception (these places still exist!).
I was treadmill bound for most of this weeks runs to give my foot and hips a break while I work on strengthening. I am happy to report I did not die of boredom and think I am seeing improvements in the foot-hip complex.
Monday: 4 easy miles on the 'mill.
Tuesday: 25 min cross training on the bike and the usual lifting. Sporting my new shirt for lifting days. It looks even funnier on my chicken arms.
Wednesday: 5 miles tempo on the 'mill. Felt good with no foot discomfort. I think flat running is paying off as far as foot recovery.
Thursday: 4 easy miles on the 'mill.
Friday: Rest day. Popped by the local running store to stock up on fuel and get some new kicks! I was long over due for new running sneakers, but was a little gun shy after my last pair didn't work out so well. Full update coming soon.
Saturday: Woke up feeling like death. Major migraine. Seeing as I was driving to TN later in the day for a few days vacation, I opted for some extra sleep and meds. First missed run of the cycle.
Mini goal for next week: Get in two workouts while on vacation with the Jayhawk and his family.
14 Weeks until race day!
How was your week?
