I'll start. 45 minutes on the treadmill before a "boot camp" workout.

All the t.v.s were on sports news. SNORE!

Intervals today, in my new GINORMOUS shoes.

Like, I knew my old 8-1/2 B shoes were too small for me (partly my feet have grown, mostly I'm making a different set of fit compromises these days than I used to). But for pity's sake, 10 D? I'd better learn to juggle because they're going to put me in the circus

Not sure if they're going to be supportive enough, though. Well, the store said I could bring them back if they don't work for me, even after a few outdoor runs. See how my feet feel tomorrow.

7 x 1 minute sprints with 1 minute walking recovery, 3.75 miles total. My stupid HRM was intermittent again today. The battery's good, just not making good contact. Grrr.

OakLeaf--Intervals! Good idea. I was not looking forward to doing a run today. Not that Intervals are fun, but that gives me something to focus on for my run today.

Did speed work on treadmill. Coach gave me a new workout. A tiny bit faster and a few longer intervals. Whew! Always happy when I do not fly off the back of the treadmill. 1 mile warm up, speed intervasl X2 0.25 mile and x 0.5 miles and then a mile cool down (yep, walked some). Total 4.75 miles. Still need to improve.

Banned from running (hiking, weight bearing, joint impacting...) for 4-6 weeks to see if I can get rid of my hip joint pain

MRI was clear, save for a possibility that the shape of my labrum is off and causing problems. There was no tearing, no arthritis, and otherwise my joint looks good.

So... back to avoiding the running. I'm not sure I'll be able to do the Seattle Marathon at the end of November (she gave me a frowny face and head-shake when I said "marathon" and "end of November")

I did run about 5k this morning with the doggie... she had a good time. I had a pretty good time, too. I'm debating whether I take the doctor's orders literally, or I start when my first PT session is (Sept 8th) and do one last sprint tri on the 7th... guess I better decide soon.

Oh no!! I am afraid to hear the same type of news from my physical therapist tomorrow. The doctor already told me to taper back on running (and cycling) because of my hip. I have a half marathon coming up on Sunday and won't miss that for the world! They will just have to deal with my hip afterwards

Ran 4 miles on the treadmill yesterday, and will do an easy two tomorrow. I hate running on the treadmill.

It rained all yesterday and spat rain today. I wanted to give the new shoes another try, but considering I might want to exchange them, I didn't want to run from home and get them muddy. So, I drove into town to do a free run on the paved trail. It was just spitting a really fine rain, which was okay as long as I was running, but then after my cool-down, I really wanted a dry place to stretch. But every gazebo and sheltering tree on the path was occupied by hospital employees smoking on their breaks.

So I went back to my car, grabbed my rain jacket and draped it over my head while I stretched.

I laced the shoes up tighter today, and didn't get any arch pain, but I'm still getting a lot of Achilles pain. I think they're going to have to go back

Hopefully I can find a more structured pair of Mizunos with the same fit, because they really feel good on my feet.

I ran a couple of errands, went home, and about a half hour later is when my alarm went off to remind me of my aerobics class tonight

I'd forgotten. Well, I'd been saying I ought to do more two-a-days. (And my class went okay too )

5.25 miles, kind of slow, but I was also trying out a new water belt.

Colby, heal up quick! Fuji, hope the news from your PT wasn't too bad and that you heal up quickly as well.

Colby, I will hope for the best. I think I'll run the Seattle half marathon because that's what the work people are doing (peer pressure, that and I'm not so sure I won't be feeling lazy) but I haven't signed up yet. I was looking forward to hearing the cowbells but there is always next year

Fuji, I hope you get good news.

Oakleaf, do you have orthotics or do you depend on the shoes?

I'm having difficulty because my shoes (that I love) give me blisters on the inner side of the ball of my foot. I use socks that are traditionally wonderful for me and Body Glide. I used the anti-blister powder last week and the one blister/callous thing turned into a blood blister! It is ugly and is highly visible when I wear sandals. Oh well...gives my co-workers something to cringe about. Honestly my Brooks are better than anything I've worn, I just wish they came in wider sizes.

I ran a lot last week (28 miles in 3 days long with track workout and hill workout on other days) and will run 15 miles when I wake up. My track mile time is getting down there, which is exciting. I have a 10K next weekend which should be no big deal but I almost have Expectations (keep in mind my Expectations are low) and then the marathon is in October.

When I came back from my last 5 mile run on Sunday, which was a two run day, I was looking forward to some downtime with ice and the Stick. When I walked into the house, THIS is what I found. You don't mess with a 25 lb cat
