Mon: Big PRE - 6.5mi (-)
Tired from Sunday's long run. SORE mostly on R leg, which meant I was favoring still on the hill running Sunday.
Tue-Noon: Short South Eugene - 3mi (-)
Short run because I had a complicated patient -- a new eval -- come in 10min late right before run time. I hate that. Felt OK.
PM: "Amber McGown Memorial" + Tamarack - 5.5mi (200')
Ran to Tamarack pool to see if my Zoom marathoners were there -- no dice. Really tired after work.
Wed-Noon: Big PRE + Hendricks climb x1 - 10mi (750')
Long noon run to Hendricks -- one up and over. Righty still sore, so I made sure I was NOT favoring the L. Worked out pretty well. TIRED.
Thu-Noon: South Eugene - 4mi (-)
Unremarkable noon run. Focused on "long & light".
PM: Track session w/Maggie (4x200m) - 2.5mi
Met Maggie (coaching client) after work, did a mile+ on the trail, then 200m cut downs w/walk rest. VERY SMOOTH. She looked great; both of us felt great. Splits: 37, 36, 35, 33, w/M leading 2 and 4.
Fri-Noon: RIVER FALLS, WI: Quarry + Golf Course + Hell's/Campus - 14mi (300')
GREAT long run back home, even though it was in the 20s and breezy. Variable footing -- some brown snow. I "made some brown snow" just of CTY M when I stopped to deuce. Had to "wipe" w/POWDER snow and nearly froze off my hands. Ran w/a water bottle to practice. Stride felt TERRIFIC.
Sat-AM: AMERY, WI: Lake Wapo Run w/HS kids - 3mi (-)
Early AM run w/some HS kids at the 2011 Winter Retreat. First-ever run with more than one other person at the WR, so that was cool. Six other HSers got up before 7AM to run, including 4 girls. Bomb. Kept it real easy. No other running that day.
Sun-AM: AMERY, WI: Lake Wapo Run solo - 4.5mi (-)
Ran solo during breakfast, stride felt GREAT. Variable snow footing, but "running from the hips" made the footing easier.
TOTAL: 53 miles.
GOOD WEEK. Some bilat heel soreness (mostly in the AM), so I'm still stretching and strengthening quite a bit. Stride felt AMAZING. :)
