this will be my last high mileage week before boston and maybe ever.  My SI and low back pain has been bad through this training cycle.   I am trying to get answers right know, getting some test done to rule out some possibilities.

Semi easy run with the gals in snow, probably the most we have had all season.  It was slick.

8:30 avg. pace

Supreme 90 arms, core and stretching. 

Went to Dr. B to get some injections in my SI's.  He looked at some x-rays done about 6 months ago and said he thinks the root of my pain comes from transitional anatomy at the lumbosacral junction.  Which means my L-5 is acting like it part of my sacrum and cause the whole pelvic girdle to work differently.  I am still going to get some blood work done to rule out some family genetic stuff.  I have two aunts that have Ankylosing Spondylitis, but Dr. B doesn't think I have that.  We will see.....

Met at  Rebecca's and ran over to Melody's and then to the OHS track and Julie showed.   We are worn and broken from training, racing, and sickness,  mine is training and a bad back.  But we all started the workout 6-8x800.  I really wanted to do all 8 because I haven't done that yet.  The 1st 4 I didn't feel good and my SI's are sore from the shots yesterday but we switched directions and I seemed to feel better.  Happy to say I finished all 8 with the last one being my fastest of the season thanks to Melody pacing me and giving me words of encouragement when I started to slow.

3:06, 3:10, 3:11, 3:20 (I really don't know why this one was so slow), regroup and changed directions.  3:04, 3:05, 3:08, 3:02.  Pretty happy that I finished this workout and had my fastest 800 of the season on the last one.

Yoga 

pilates legs, back ex. and side planks

Met Melody super early I had to be home by 5.  I did about 15 mins before and then we ran another 15 mins and did hill sprints.  4 up .15 at about 65 sec. and then one down at about 50 sec x 2.  I didn't time myself just adding on to Melody's times.  Came home and went back to bed and then was able to get out for another 4 miles.

Race: Boston prep half marathon (13.1 Miles) 01:31:18

This was just a couple friends doing a training run but I need a good race simulation to give me some confidence going into Boston.  I wanted to run between a 1:30-1:31.  We did the Provo river half course, warming up 6.7 up to the girls camp with an avg pace of 8:37.  Then took a gu and potty break and started into the half marathon.  This little race consisted of Julie E, Melody, Rebecca, and myself.  I expected them to be faster than me, this has been the trend and they were.  But I was really happy with my time,  I was quite tired on the way down from the girls camp but actually felt better when it flattened out.  Was also happy I could get some sub-7 at the end. 

splits-6:37, 6:46, 6:50, 6:41, 7:08 (flattens out on the path, get a drink and go through some snow/ice patches), 7:01, 7:17, 7:43  (headed back up the road by bridal vail for the last part of the last mile and most of this mile), 7:11, 6:57, 7:08, 6:57, 6:54.

Cooled down to the car .5 

7:30 avg for the 20.3
