Badbark, utterly amazing! Congrats on a once in a lifetime type of win! You continue to amaze. Recover well (and hope you are still in relatively good shape down below!).
Gul, I see you are getting all the toothpaste lately. This may pay big dividends to you. I wouldn't worry about 9 m/m at all. Are you planning to mix some strides and work sessions back in now? I think that once you can go out (on a reasonably flat course on a "non" hot day and maintain a steady HR/Pace for 10-13 miles you are ready for adding in some of the subLT runs (or whatever type of quality you are envisioning). Do the slow runs feel more comfy lately or do they feel unnatural/uncomfortable? I can't remember if they ever did or not...
SJ, epic week on the bike. Was feeling the sun and wind as I pictured your rides.
Fishy, nice racing and even better news to hear about your hip. Hope all keeps moving in this good direction.
Last week was crushed at work, but it paid out w/2 small grants coming into the lab. was a strange training week as did 2 subLTs and no other running through Friday...then got some easier miles over the weekend. Looks like another 200 miles or so for June so hanging in there. Getting used to the heat.
My fizz has been looking at my running because of my back. Well, back seems sorted now but she says I'm not using my glutes much at all when I run. So her solution has been to have me do lots of glute strengthening stuff and dynamic running moves to train me to use them. She says imagine what you could do if you used your a$$ Probably more evidence that I could use a coach if for nothing else just technique adjustments.
