Training Dec 9-15 2013

I’ve been spending a lot of time on that track lately. My hamstring does not let me run too long on the treadmill. What I’ve been working towards is one run outside (the longer and / or slower one of the day) and the faster or shorter run of the day on the 100m track.

The 166 laps and 665 turns I did on Wednesday did burn up the bottoms of my feet a bit towards the end, luckily there were no blisters and they were okay the next day! I do try to switch directions ever 5-10 minutes as well.

For being my highest volume week of running since before August 2012, I feel really good. The 10.4 miles at a 7:12 pace fatigued me for a few days, but I do not have any developed fatigue from the general week of running, which is great 🙂
