This was our route for the first night. In our neighborhood no matter where you run you have a hill. Hills are for heroes....right?!
I am looking forward to the run club this coming Tuesday. I hope to see some new faces and I hope to be able to run with them next time.
I have been incredibly busy this week, hence the no posts all week, but I feel like I am getting caught up. I am looking forward to sleeping in this weekend. I wish that today was Friday and not Thursday. My body is definitely still recovering from my whirlwind trip to Palm Springs.
I did a TM run on Monday that went pretty good. I ran 5 x 5:00 minutes at an 8.5 with a 90 second recovery walk in between sets. Since switching back to my Ghost 5s I haven't experienced any foot cramping. That is a huge relief for me. Last night I got brave and ran my entire workout on the road because they were having a late night football practice at the track. I am not brave enough to run around the track during a football practice. I went and ran the loop on the S. Hill that I ran for all of my 3 mile tempo repeats when I was training for Eugene. At one point I looked at my watch and saw that I was running a 6:54 pace. Unfortunately that didn't last long. It was funny to think that in March I was running the same loop at 6:35-6:40 pace. I am confident once I get some legit speed work (and don't have anymore CS symptoms) under my feet I will be back.
Here is my workout recap:
5 x .75 miles with a 90 second recovery walk
