I'm All The Way Up
I killed 18 miles, pretty much faster than at any other point this year. Here are the splits:
8:11, 7:44, 7:29, 7:29, 7:21, 7:40, 7:23, 7:19, 7:02, 7:20, 7:13, 7:27, 7:42, 7:10, 7:17, 6:53, 6:54, 7:00
I think at this point I've got almost all my speed back, and I'm feeling really strong. The run Saturday capped a 63 mile week, and knock on wood, I'm really healthy with no issues.
I've been running a lot of double runs with 10-12 miles before work, and then 3-4 in the evening. Getting in another light recovery run really seems to be building strength, and keeping me loose and free from injury.
I've also been doing leg strengthening workouts a couple of days every week, and stairs on Sundays. The core work still leaves a little to be desired, but other than that, everything is pretty much back on track and I'm hitting on all cylinders.
Good luck to everyone running races tomorrow ... enjoy your day!
