Tuesday I was feeling much better and made my out for a nice warm up before making my way to the track to do 8 laps with the 100 meter straights at 5K or faster pace. After 16 repeats I was starting to really feel good. My legs appreciated the effort and things may be ready to get moving again. The only other issue that I am in the process of addressing is my lower abdomen muscles being constantly fatigued to the point of some serious tightness. Hopefully as I do more strength work this will iron itself out as well.
This morning I did my Kenwood loop and was a bit confused by the data I was receiving from my GPS device. I had a nice ultra low heart rate but the pace was quicker than I am used to seeing, but I felt like shit. Slow down? I tried that and it didn't work, I still felt poor. Nearing 45 minutes into the run I started to feel a bit better and the HR actually went up where I thought it should be. Not too sure what was going on there?
The right foot is tender but I can run. I continue to ice and that seems to keep it at bay.
Here is the last two days:
Tuesday: 1:07:48 9.7 miles
8 laps, straights at 5K pace
Wednesday: 1:00:00 8.4 miles HR: 128
