AM: 6 miles solo.  Felt a bit weird in my calf, so I think I will have to forego the workout planned for tonight and skip running tomorrow as a precaution. 

I'm not too worried about the injury (likely an acute, small calf strain or tear), just too close to the race next Saturday to play with it over a workout.

PM: 8.4 miles with a ton of striders and then the gym- legs, chest, abs.  I hate leg day, but it's clear I need it after today- my lunges and squats have dropped off pretty epically.  I had to reset with just body weight at one point just to fix my form.  Sad.

AM: 3 miles at marathon pace with Dylan, 10.6 total.

PM: 10.7 total miles, then a weird workout (4.5 miles).  Jeremy and John wanted to run 800s at 5:19 pace with a long 400 recocvery, and I also wanted to do that pace, but with a bit more effort and much less recovery.  After the first 800, I switched to doing 1200s and recovered for 50-60 seconds jogging while they rejoined me at the start line.  This made it pretty perfect, as I received a short jog rest that I wanted and still was able to get that pace in while doing the longer-ish items I wanted.

Workout 1x800, 400 recovery, 4x1200 with 50-60 seconds recovery, 1x1600 to finish

Int.-     800,  1200, 1200,  1200,  1200,  1600

Splits- 2:41,  4:00,  4:00,  3:57,    3:57,  5:04

 

Overall, I am surprised by how easy this workout was.  I knew the pacing I wanted (5:19) wasn't too challenging, however, with the starting and stopping with the very short 50-60 seconds of rest, I figured I would be more taxed and mentally fatigued.  Usually in a situation like this I get a sense of uncertainty, but after today I definitely have some confidence- particularly with the workout this morning, as I was on tired legs a bit.

Really had no opportunity to run today.  Goose egg.
