Subject: RE: Soup to Nuts - Letsrun Train Me
Well, I mentioned that I tweaked my calf sometime last week and it really hasn't been getting better nor is it really getting worse. So, in the interest of it getting better, I skipped my run this morning. I'll still have over 70 miles in for the week and there's outside chance I'll run 80, so still a solid week of training.
The calf might actually be a high achilles issue, I'm not sure. It's kind of hard to determine where the tightness and discomfort is really coming from. Oddly enough, it bothers me much more after getting up from sitting long periods and hardly bothers me at all when I'm running. I've been icing, massaging and stretching every chance I get.
A short March Summary:
322 miles run.
29 days running.
16 double days.
45 total sessions in the month. Shortest 2 miles, longest 15 (several times).
2 mile time trial in 10:49 and 5k on a downhill course in 16:42.
I'm happy with that month.
Some thoughts on some upcoming sessions:
- Scheduled for hills tomorrow. I'm thinking of doing 10 regular hill repeats at a moderate pace followed by 10 short steep hill sprints to work all aspects of quads etc. Then I'll do leg weights on Sunday night, but probably a much lighter session to account for the harder hill session on Saturday.
- I'm debating on my next quality session next week between the work out Malmo recommended (generally) of 5 min on/ 5 min off for 70 minutes versus doing 1600 m cruise intervals with 1 min jogs in between. I'm leaning towards cruise intervals for a couple reasons. First, I thinks its more in line with what I'm looking for in a harder work out at this point and more closely approximates the stresses of a HM. Second, I did these a few weeks back and I was unsatisfied with how I conducted the work out. I kind of want to go back and conquer this work out, not necessarily with faster splits, but a better state of mind and maybe a few extra reps.
