A Little Progress
Sunday I did the two 5.2 milers as I mentioned last time.
Monday I did 5.2 recovery in the morning followed by 6.4 miles with some at MP (6:40 pace according to the heart rate) at lunch on the treadmill.
Tuesday saw 5.2 in the morning at recovery pace with slight leg tightening and 5.8 'low aerobic' on the treadmill at lunch (7:30 pace or so). (No leg tightening)
Wednesday was a rest day. I am going to do 3 days on / rest / 3 days on / rest for a little while to help with the recovery.
And today in addition to this evening's easy 6.4, I did 5xhill this morning as my quality workout.
No leg problems today at all. Tomorrow is an easy day. I'll probably do my recovery run in the morning followed by a 'low aerobic' run at lunchtime on the treadmill (if my work schedule permits). Things are busy these days and it's tough to know precisely when the workouts will get in.
I'm going to go a few weeks (I think) without pressing the high mileage in singles. Basically keep my workouts to 45 minutes to 1 hour. Hopefully this will naturally lengthen with ease before I know it and without strain. Boy, what a joy to run without pain.
