Another eventful week. Had minor surgery on Wednesday. My first question for the surgeon was whether I'd be able to run 20 miles on Saturday, to which she responsed: "so, you are not one of those people that when you get the urge to exercise you let it past". Then she proceded to tell me that she ran Boston 4 times, and that, if I can put up with the cold, there is no reason I should not run. Hurray. Recovery was speedy and quick. I was out all day Wednesday but managed a tempo run on Thursday.
Goal: 5X 1000m @ 6:56 pace.
Actual: 5X1000m @ 6:40-6:50 pace (3 uphill, 2 downhill)
Since Monday was a holiday, I met up with the Sues in the am. Chris was gracious enough to sit for Sue M's lovely kids - don'd I have the best husband? It was nice to have company for speed work
1.25m swim, with .25 kicks. Again, wanted to do 1.5m but ran out of time and had to get Petru and go home for dinner.
And I mean out of it all day.
Thursday: TEMPO RUN
Goal: 1 m easy, 5 m @ 7:59, 1m easy
Actual: 1 m easy, 5m@ 7:40, 1 m easy
Had some knee pain after this one and was a bit concerned as it lingered till Friday.
1.5m, .25 kicks
Saturday: LONG RUN
20 m run
Actual: 9: 03
Awsome run, long hills.
