5 miles on my own at noon.  I ran to ten songs equaling to a 43 min run.  :)  I was too HOT in my capris and short sleeve shirt.  It was 80 degrees.  Beautiful now, but wait until April.... yikes.

TM class: 1 mile warm up, tempo run for 4 miles, 1 mile cool down.

Squats, calf raises and sit ups.   

Great day.

I decided that I was going to long run today... Didn't know how long, just knew it had to be long because I didn't run yesterday.  

Before I left this morning I decided to download a few podcasts because I tend to enjoy long runs when people are talking.  I downloaded a podcast about training for your first marathon, which was okay.  If anyone has any suggestions on a GOOD, HIGH LEVEL (not for beginner runners) running podacst, please let me know about it!  

 Did my first 6 mile loop like a gem.  8:32 AP

Came home took a drink and headed out for a 5 mile loop before my visiting teachers came by at 10:15.  Got back at 10:15 on the dot and I guess they already came and went???  Sent me a text wondering where I was.  8:15 AP

Back out for another 6.   8:25 AP

Extremely muggy and rather warm today, planes weren't really flying.  I looked at my e-mail this morning and they had canceled the running group due to the weather.  Really???  I thought it was rather fine.  Didn't know running gets canceled EVER due to weather.  Plus they were only doing up to 6 miles this morning.  Glad I didn't get out of bed to make a showing there.  :)

I had to finish out the week with fifty.  Ran 1 mile to the gym, 7 miles on TM, sit ups, squats, calf raises, 1 mile back home.  Legs not too tired, just sick of running.

I feel a strange something going on in my right thigh... stress fracture perhaps.

I talked to RAD about what was going on in my leg.  She is no PT, I know this, but we have shared the common interest of the stress fracture... 

She encouraged me to run the TM on a 6% incline as she has done the past few weeks.  I gave it a go... No or little pain.  I ran 6 miles on the TM a little faster than a 10 mm.  I really think there is something strange going on in the hip area.  It's on the outside of the right quad.

30 minutes on the stairs.

Ran the base 5k today.  The age group winners got BOSA balls for the prize so I was totally in this for the win.  :)  Splits: 6:33, 7:33, 7:37....  Ha!  Can't say that was the best split version of a 5k.  Husband laughed when I told him my splits.  He did great, 3rd overall with a time of 18:08. Pretty good for not running many miles, I would say.  

My legs felt completely sluggish today, like lead blocks. I don't know if I am super tired lately or the hill work I have done has killed them over.  After the race my hip was acting up again so I called it a day.  Low mileage week.

Met the running group at the gym in the AM.  Ran with a gal named Caitlyn at a 7:30 pace for the first three.  Finally met someone here that has some speed!  

Ran the ten remainder miles later on the TM.  Same workout as yesterday.  Listened to some running Podcasts so the gym thing wouldn't be so boring.

I wanted another go at the TM workout I did on Monday.

2.5 mile warm up.

1 min on/1 min off.  Offs were at 7.0 and ons were at 9.0-9.4 (5x total)

3 min on/2 min off 7.0 and 9.0 (repeated 6x, last one lasted 4 min)

1 min on/ 1 min off. 7.0 and 9.1-9.5, and one at 10.

Quarter mile cool down.

I felt so much better than Monday.  My new tunes helped me stay motivated on the fast parts.
