Here is the soundtrack for this bloop. Play it along as you read. (some Aerosmith from the 70's)
am ready to declare myself BACK to normal. You won't need to hear about
my plantar fasciitis anymore. It has dwindled to just an irritant; On
par with the normal sore muscles from training. It's not keeping me from
doing anything, so I'm not going to bitch about it anymore!
I just finished my first 30-mile week since September, and all the runs
were good. Easy 5 Monday. 3x1 mile intervals on Tuesday (6:52, 7:13, 7:03), 6 mile
progression on Thursday, and 12 hilly goat miles on Saturday. Then I
topped it off with 20 miles on the bike Sunday. BAM!
always good to be feeling strong and healthy when you hit another
birthday. 52 doesn't seem bad at all so far! I'm ready to kick butt and
get some new over 50 PRs this year!
for the statheads, here is my Goat run. Not quite as hilly as normal,
so I pushed it a bit and was very happy with my paces on the rocky fire
road and single track.
Mile 10 was a killer steep climb! But then I finished strong with 2 miles at 8:00.
This week I take it (relatively) easy and then race a 5K on Saturday.
Life is good.
