stretching and lots of foam rollering

Some random observations:

training for a marathon at this time of year is much harder than during August and September.

I have now run more miles than all of last year (which was a PR for miles) with 5 weeks to go.

I have pretty much stopped being a triathlete, with no biking or swimming since July. 

I am getting out of wack because, besides not doing any S/B, I am not doing enough stretching and almost no yoga or strength. 

No running today, but it wouldn't kill me to do something else that could be beneficial.

Ok this stunk.  Decided to run beginning of the Glacier trail in Waukesha after I dropped my kids off at church and head out past Wales.  Spotty mile markers made pacing a little more difficult than normal.  Out was generally uphill, but the downhill did not really help on the return trip.  I was pretty much done at turn around, but my car was in Waukesha, so what was I going to do.  I guess after 6 days of running it is time for a rest.

Pretty chilly temps (low 20's), but I was dressed proper and didn't cause too much issue, except water bottles freezing.  Otherwise felt pretty comfortable and pleased with pace and effort.  At turn around found a trail in woods that I had never spotted before and walked in the woods for a few minutes and ate my shot bloks. Then I realized it is still hunting time and thought I better turn around before I get shot. ;)

pretty chilly with a high biting wind (wind chill was in the teens) Wind really helped me though. When it was at my back, it helped me physically go faster, when it was in my face it helped me mentally to go faster so I would get the F done!  With a week of sluggish runs, last two, make me feel better. Now two longer ones for the weekend.

out 12:41
back 12:25

Well that's something to be thankful for: a smooth run that felt good on a warm sunny day.  Today is not supposed to be a run day, but this has become somewhat of a tradition.

  • 53m 58s
  • 6.00 miles
  • 08m 59s /Mi

out 27:31 (9:10 pace)
back 26:27 (8:49 pace

Some good news: warm enough that I ran in shorts; Hip flexor did not give me issue; negative split.  Pace seems to be kind of a broken record lately.  Don't really like going this slow, but I have to take what the body is giving me.

  • 41m 17s

Started out good, but at about mile two, got a sharp pain in my hip flexor area and my leg kind of gave out.  Kind of worked through it but decided to cut a 1/2 mile loop out on return trip.  Still a bit sore and I iced it.  We will see what tomorrow brings.
