Ha! googled a new expression!

I will run Wednesday morning. Yes I am cheating. I have a rest day tomorrow earned by three double days.

I am going paranoid about my tibialis anterior.... it is fine once warmed up, after 6-8 hours resting it gets angry, a burning feeling.

but i. will. run. wednesday.

So I'm the first run today? Impossible!

5.5 miles on the trail in 51 minutes. A little hard after the 3rd mile -- turned around into a head wind, and suddenly I couldn't hit my stride after that. I didn't have the heart rate monitor on, but I think it was pretty high all the way back!

Had to swim later in day and I was TIRED!

Got back from spectating at Ironman Arizona yesterday. I was so tired when I got back. I spent 18 hours watching the race. Slept 5 hours and then flew home.

So I didn't get my in trainer ride like I needed to on Monday... but I was going to run for 60 minutes today.

My coach told me to just get in my trainer ride tonight and get back on schedule.

I run again on Thursday.

Ran today, first time increasing weekly runs by 10% instead of 5. THe doc had me playing it safe for several weeks by only increasing 5%. Now I can finally start seeing larger increases in mileage. Do you know how frustrating it is to increase a measly 0.1 mile per week? Ugh.

Anyway, 2.6 miles today and felt good. Can't wait to make it to 3 so I can do my outside loop during work.

KIMMYT: Hang in there! Baby steps are safest! It is SOOO hard though!

okay girls, I did the run one minute walk one minute on the treadmill today. I had to cheat a couple of times and wait a minute and a half to get my breath back a little more before I ran again, but other than that I did fine.

I fell on my knee yesterday so I was a little nervous that it might hurt, but it was fine.

I ran at 4 mph and walked at 3 and then a couple of times I ran at 5 mph, but that one really took the breath from me.

The sheet I printed off to that website you guys gave me said to do it 10 times but I did it 12 just cause I wanted to see if I could run 5mph for a minute.

OK, I'm up to a 10 min run and a 1 min walk so I did 5.2 km at lunch today, some with the kids. I have a charley horse (I think) in my right calf though. How do I make that go away? I've tried stretching and massaging to no avail.

Maybe I'll google it.
