Workout: 70 minutes easy

Overall Average Pace: 9:57

Conditions:

  • 30 degrees (feels like 25)
  • NW 12 mph
  • Snow flurries

Splits:

  • 1 mi - 10:14 / 2 mi - 10:25 / 3 mi - 10:36 / 4 mi - 10:15 / 5 mi - 9:14 / 6 mi - 9:48 / 6.73 mi - 8:47

Thoughts:

  • My left calf felt fine during my run. My quadriceps, however, were very sore from yesterday's run. I guess I lost more fitness than I realized during my six days off of training.

Workout: 65 minutes easy with 5 x 30 second strides (60 seconds easy recovery)

  • Treadmill / 9:12 
  • 30 second strides / 9.5 / probably around 7:00
  • 60 second recovery / 6.5 / probably 9:20

Thoughts:

  • My quadriceps are KILLING me! I took Advil before running. Tynelol following the run. Hoping that they will soon loosen up and feel normal again!
  • Itching to get outside again, but ice covered the roadways. Weather forecast does not look promising for outdoor workouts this week.

Cross Training:

  • 50 minutes pilates - I could not perform all of the exercises because my knees are still badly bruised. Putting weight on my knees is very painful.
  • 45 minutes spinning - My knees were really bothered for the first 15 minutes of the class.

Workout:

  • 20 miles easy
  • Goal to reach 16 miles at 2:40:00

Conditions:

  • 34°
  • N 12 mph
  • Intermittent rain mist and freezing rain

Splits:

  • Overall Average Pace - 10:14  I was hoping to be just under 10:00.
  • 5 mi - 9:58 / 10 mi - 10:04 / 15 mi - 10:10 / 20 mi - 10:44
  • I met my 16 mile goal of 2:40:00, but then I fell apart.
  • At mile 17, I walked a half mile while I refueled. I had to really push myself mentally for the final 3 miles.

Thoughts:

  • I had a nose bleed the entire 20 miles. Clearly, my nose is not healed from my fall.
  • My quadriceps are no longer sore! My knees hurt off and on, but I am not worried that I have long-term damage from my fall. They are tender and stiff when I get out of bed each morning.
  • I took Tynenol and Advil before my run. I took some more around mile 15.
  • I continue to perform daily stretching and strengthing exercises to address my legs.
