I’m feeling some pain in my thigh different from other pain I’ve felt before, I’m a little worried about it. I’m going to take some time off until I can get Nate to check it out and err on the side of caution. Better safe than sorry.

Pain in thigh is gone, hip is pretty tight now. Hip has probably been the culprit all along. Now I feel a little dumb for being so worried about it yesterday. I think I was mostly worried because I realized how stupid it was to do a 13 miler after 4 days of speed... but it felt so good haha. I need to be more careful though. Dikes and Canyon, 7:43 average. Super windy and hail that felt like rocks, yay! The end was pretty nice though.

Tough workout. It was pretty windy and I’m sore from weights yesterday. 

Warmups, mile warmup, then 2 laps easy and straight into an 80% for 3 miles. First mile on the track, block lap and added to make a mile, last mile on the track. I tried keeping it more even this time around instead of killing the first mile and dying hard. I like this way better. Hit 6:19, 12:42 (6:23), 19:37 (6:55). That last mile I struggled, again just tried to finish. On the bright side it’s 5 seconds faster than last week’s 80. Next was 9x400s in place of the whistle hills we usually do. I seriously considered just doing 2 and dropping because I felt like crap and mentally didn’t think I could handle it. But, when it got around to it I couldn’t drop. I just couldn’t. I knew I’d hate myself too much. So I took it one at a time and told myself the pace didn’t matter, just finish. I am discouraged that my times were so slow when it felt so hard to run them, but I did what I could. I will have to work on having a better mentality the next time around.

400s: 94, 94, 94, 93, 95, 94, 94, 92, 90.

1.25 cool down to get to 9.

Hip/piriformis is tight again, stretched it out well after practice. Also, I have a minor strain in a tendon in my ankle (forgot the name). It’s been bugging for a good month but I ignored it haha. Probably not good but I knew it was something I could run through. But it flared up pretty bad today. Nate says it’s fine to run on still so sweet! Iced that real well.
