Things are crazy now. So if I usually read your blog/Facebook/whatever and haven't lately, well, please forgive me! I will catch up on them soon I hope. I will be leaving on my trip tomorrow and will have internet Wed & Thurs but not for a few days after that. So I'll try to catch up then, but we'll see.
Meanwhile, workout stuff:
Sunday - easy 3.65 around Sugar House Park. Felt great.
Monday - fast 8 miles with Sue on the Porter Rockwell trail. We did the first 7 at a 10:28 pace and the last mile was fast enough that our ave pace for all 8 was 10:20. Yeah, that was a fast mile. Fun, though! Bad news... my left foot started hurting on the bottom, proximal to the big toe. It just felt crampy and achy when I got home and rested.
Tuesday - track workout; warm up and cool down 1 mile easy plus 4x400 fast. Didn't want to do a lot because I want to be fresh on Friday for the race. Did the 400s in 2:13, 2:11, 2:11 and 2:08. Awesome. At the end, my foot ached again. It got worse all day as I walked to and from my car 2x at work (1.8 miles total) because I had to take my mom to the airport in the middle of the day. I put ice on it and am taking my anti-inflammatory. Loren thinks it might be some tendonitis :( which is not good news.
I'm not going to RW at all until Friday. Let's hope rest, ice, and anti-inflammatories keep this thing in check.
If I don't update before Friday, it's because I'm enjoying my vacation :). Our team for Portland-to-Coast is "Six Pistols" if you want to check our results online.
