OK, nothing creative this time. Sorry. It's late, I'm tired.



4.24 miles

13m 41s /mile

WOW! Slow run.

The theme of this run from step one... OUCH my lower legs HURT. It was just pain the whole way. I gutted out this entire run.

I started to think, "If other people had pain like this running, I bet they wouldn't be running". Maybe they would. It made me feel good.

On a positive note, no side cramp. But, uuuhhh... running that freaking slow how could I get one really?



2000.00 meters

1m 39s /100 meters

Went to the pool to swim after running.

The water was so cold. You would think it would be refreshing after running in 90 degree heat. Nope. My body temperature is so high, it's just freezing.

200 w/u


At this point I ditched my scheduled workout and decided to do a 1000. Everytime I stopped, I would start to shiver.

The 1000 was good and relaxing. Perfect solution!

300 C/D

Ran 2.65 today, the last run before The Tri. I'm getting excited. Scared. Excited. Worried. Happy. You know, the whole gamut. I want to do another brick before the race, but I really want to get a bunch of rest days in (well, okay, 3).

Still no running for me, think I may have IT Band problems. It hurts on the outside of my knee and hip. Will try a short ride tonight in my Specialized shoes which stop me knee moving laterally too much and I have a sports massage with a Sports Therapist on Friday so hopefully he'll be able to tell me what I've done to myself.

I'm pining for running on the trails.

I went for a run last night but had to cut if short (3km) because my calf hurt again. The muscle right down the inside of my leg, close in the front bone (shin bone?). It's been hurting on and off since my race. Didn't bother me much when I ran 7km on Sunday but hurt lots on the run before and after.

No running. It's been so bloody hot and it really got to me. I'm gearing down for..... guess what.. saturday... The weather will cool down according to the forecast so I won't be suffering too much.

Tattie, sounds like ITBS. You can have that flair up if you increase distance to much too soon, or run too many hills too soon.

I ran 4.5 miles with hard, but short intervals yesterday. It was hot and I skirted around the land of Pukerton a few times but didn't actually get there. Yikes, the heat makes it soooo much harder. I can sympathize Alpine.

Tattie - yes to the ITBS, there are some stretches posted around the forum someplace that should help. If Ihave time I'll try to find a link.

KG- sounds like tibialis posterior tendonitis or shin splints involving the tibialis posterior. Check out the thread I started on plantar fasciitis, the treatment is basically the same except the you want to ice the area that is most painful.
