Just a 3 miler this morning, feeling much better and looking forward to tomorrow's long run.<br><br>
Ok, this is going to stand as a monument to my stupidity. I knew I had added too much and it bit me in the butt. I'm having breakfast with my mentor tomorrow after my long run and he asked me to bring my schedule and log. I printed them out and it just dawned on me how stupid I was when the wheels fell off last week.<br><br><br>
1. One run with striders<br>
2. One tempo run (longest one I've done)<br>
3. Two, count them TWO progressive runs, one of which was a medium/long run the other was supposed to be a long run.<br>
4. Ran 10 miles longer than my previous highest week, even considering I stopped my long run at only 12.5 (would have been 16 miles longer had I been able to finish my long run)<br>
5. First attempt at 6x per week running<br><br>
I'm really glad the wheels fell off like they did. That's a recipe for injury if there ever was one.

I tweaked my calf pretty bad in that 50 miler and flared it back up last night. I'm gonna lay low for a few days and not run. Probably do some cycling and skiing instead.<br><br>
