I think I had a cramp in my foot on my run yesterday because it feels fine today, anlke alittle stiff but not bad. If everything feels good I plan on 75 miles with 2 hard workouts, one being SF half on saturday.

Met with some old friends, Cheryl and Chris and ran on the canal easy.  Was muddy form the storm.  But was nice to catch up.  Dropped them off at 7 and added on more.  Arch was sore but not to bad, iced it when I got home.

Decided I didn't want to do speed work my myself today so I got up to meet Jeff and Sasha at 5am.  I wanted to do 3x2 miles and do a better job than last week.  Started with just ovet a 2 mile warmup and it was very dark.  These ones are down the path 6:35, 6:34 (3:40 rest).  Turn and went back up the path wanted sub-7's becuase I couldn't do this by myself last week.  6:45, 6:45 (5:59 rest) Yes better than I thought I would.  Then the last one we did 1 miles down and 1 mile up and Sasha gave his heart rate moniter to see what my heart rate was doing.  Which took my mind off the pace and I focused on my heart rate and it seemed easier.  6:41, 6:44 really pushed the last quarter to try and get my heart rate as high as I could get it, a 187 I think.  Droped Sasha off at 10.3 and added more.  Ran into Sarah and ran with her for a while and chatted.  I was freezing by the time I finished.

Wore an elastic brace on my arch that seemed to help.  Arch alittle sore after.  Ice and then heat.

I was going to get up and run but my foot was stiff and sore when I got up.  I got it worked out by Dr. brady yesterday.  So I went back to bed and thought to myself I canjust see how it feels when I get up and either take my son in the jogger or go aqua jogging.  When I got up and walked around it felt good so I got ready to take my son out and my husband came home and was able to take my son with him.  Yes!...I didn't have to push him.  Felt good foot a little sore at first but felt good after a couple of miles.  Went to the mouth of the canyon and back from my house.

I had such a plan for todays workout/race that went out the window in the race.  My legs just felt achy and non responsive so I just ran what I could on this hard course.  Pleased with the outcome, not exstatic but gives me confidence to get close to that 3 hour mark at SG.  And the pace felt sustainable for me.

Starated the day by myself with a miles and some bathroom time, then Michelle joined with some more miles and some more bathroom time.  The morning was chilly but great for racing.  Warmed up for 4.4 miles, stretched and started the race.  Legs felt fair but got achy around mile 6.5, the point where I really wanted to get fast.  It just wasn't there for me.

1-7:04 Good comfortable start

2-7:06

3-7:17

4-7:17 1st good uphill

5-7:02  take a hammer gel

6-7:31uphill

7-7:31rest of uphill with some down

8-6:48

9-7:07 just can't get the legs to turn over like I want them to.  Have this deep ache in my legs and low back almost to the bone.

10-7:09

11-7:04 Goal at this point was to get faster each mile.

12-7:01

13-6:52

.1-:31(5:00)

Cooled down a mile with Michelle and had to get home.  All in all I wanted to be faster but it was a great tempo on a hard course.

Foot was sore after the race but feels better after icing it.

One more high mileage week and then taper time:) yaa
