Nashville Sidewalks

I had a late flight out of Nashville (4pm) so I took my time getting up in the morning, having breakfast, some starbucks, and then eventually going for a run.  I went straight out, through Vanderbilt's campus, through Belmont's campus, and eventually past the Tennessee State Fair.  It was a pleasant run.  I went out 31 min then headed back the way I came.  I got lost for a bit by the state fair which could have been a disaster but I figured it out quickly.  I had a layover in DC and missed my connection leaving my on my college roomate's couch which incidentally is the same couch I purchased used from Heleig Meyers in Boone in 1999 for $200.  It was disgusting then, got worse through college, and now was unbearable.  I miss that couch.

Daytona Sidewalks

Long day of travel. Ran 10 miles and am ready for bed.  Felt pretty good, I haven't been sore from the race.  The plantar feels great but my 4th metatarsal aches a little.  Nothing though really worth mentioning.

Embry-Riddle Track

The plan was to go 4X1600 but it was quite clear early that I wasn't on it today.  The 2nd 1600 was slow and after that I was forced to shorten the workout up to 1200m and then 800m.  Times were 4:32, 4:40, 3:32, 2:13.  the 2:13 at the end was fast and encouraging but it was also just about all I had in me.  I think the lack of long runs and base work over the past couple of months due to the plantar fasciitis is showing up in my struggles in longer workouts.  I had intended on racing a 5k on June 2nd but I think it's pretty clear that that lack of strength would be magnified in a 5k thus I'm now going to be entering myself in the 1 mile that weekend.

After 6 days in a row of running the foot still felt good but the aching in it was increasing slightly so it was good to get a day off of it.

Daytona Sidewalks

I went for my normal 10 mile run on the sidewalks of Daytona Beach, Florida.  I'm writing this a week and a half after I did this run and I can't remember anything about this run.

Embry Riddle

Today was a lactic threshold workout of 2X3 miles with there to be a slight increase in the middle mile (~10sec).  It was a pretty hot out which probably, definately, pushed me over the lactic threshold.  I did the first 3 miles completely on the track in 15:11 (5:06, 4:58, 5:07) but it got really old quick and by the end I was feeling like I crossed lactic trhreshold.  I took 2 min recovery then decided to do the next interval going around the fields.  I ran 15 min looping around the fields and up the hill.  It was just an estimate and was, I'm sure, short of 3 miles but I was glad I got off the track and did the lactic work based on feel and not a track time.  I felt ok today, considering the heat, and felt pretty good once I was off the track.

Daytona Sidewalks

After making note of my lack of long runs early in the week, coach Hopfe and I decided that it would be good to get in a longer effort.  I typically would not consider 13 miles a long run but it felt long today and my lack of endurance strength was again made evident reaffirming my notions to axe the 5k and stick with the mile.  Also, in order to keep the foot feeling good I did about half of my run looping around a ~1/2 loop around a baseball field on a cinder type surface.  That got old before I even completed a loop but for soft surfaces it was the only option.
