|Subject: ||RE: Soup to Nuts - Letsrun Train Me|
85% to 90% is way better than 10%. Glad to hear it!
You might be amused to know that I've started to hate you, but in a very friendly way. See, after my half marathon side-stitch experience, I've decided I need to really be religious about my core work. So I'm back to doing a pretty good load of core work every other day. It turns out that I really don't like to do core work -- so every night after my pm run, I tell myself, "damnit. ID is doing his core work day in and day out. You (Quack) pride yourself on being obsessive, but this ID dude is being WAY better about managing all of the incidental aspects of his training. Do your damn core suff!".
And then, somehow, my core stuff happens. So now I blame you for me having been wandering around with sore stomach muscles for the last week and a half. :-) (Just in case it doesn't come through the horrible communication medium that is text: Thank you for providing a good example to aspire to. I appreciate the motivation.)
I'm settling in to a SoM-style couple of months. I think I'm finally fully recovered from the tendonitis, and now that surviving the HM is off the schedule, it's back to the plan. Which looks surprisingly similar to ID's at an earlier point -- focus on base building and raw speed for a bit, race a few 5ks, and re-evaluate in July or so. I've never run many doubles, so this week was kind of fun: 66 miles over 12 runs. No long run to speak of, but I did 10 miles on Friday running from Berkeley to Lake Anza and back in 1:23 (I like to think that the ~1500 feet of elevation gain over the course I took makes that a slightly more respectable pace than 8:19min/mi sounds on the surface). Calves are sore from all the hills I ran in the bay area, but they're recovering now that I'm back to my regular haunts.
