This week is going well so far – I’m at 31.3 miles and plan on going to the gym after work today. I even got in a track workout yesterday…. I ran 400’s for about 45 minutes around 1:40 per 400 (Jogged for a minute in between). Then did 5 hard 200’s. I started out tired, but ended feeling pretty good. Got in about 7.3 miles. Im starting to get nervous about injuries – so I went to the gym Wednesday and did 10 miles on the elliptical…. planning on doing the same today. I’m having some pain on the bottom of my foot… especially when I touch it… and my left foot has developed a strange bump on the side that is slightly painful…. hmm. Definitely want these things to go away! I have feared plantar fasciitis for years…. could it be developing now? Not gonna happen. I’m actually pretty impressed by myself – I’ve been foam rolling, icing, stick rolling, massaging, even stretching (occasionally)…. It’s amazing how much better you feel when you actually take care of your limbs.
I FINALLY finished the book! … I started reading “Run!” in October 2012…. and just finished it yesterday. I tend to start reading something then forget about it for a year or so. I did the same thing with “Born to Run” which I also have not finished (I’m still only 20 pages in). I just ordered some things from Amazon, and threw a book into that order – “Eat and Run.” Why do I keep ordering books, when I have books I still need to read? I don’t know….
As you can see I have 2 more books by Dean Karnazes, and “Born to Run”… all need to be read. “Lore of Running” is a good book to have, I peak in it every once in a while.
I think that’s all. I have 2 days to get 10 more miles in and hit my goal. Oh! and I created a new page dedicated to my 2014 Trail Year – check it out… The list has only just begun, so if you know any awesome trail races in upstate NY, or North East area… Feel free to leave a suggestion! 🙂
