Just three more weeks of training to go, then it's race week. The next two weeks will be the highest mileage weeks for this training cycle.<br><br>
March was a good month .... 187.5 miles.
Sorry to hear that, Jill. Last year I pulled a hamstring right about this time, but still tried to race the half. I lasted until mile 3 then it went again. I limped in from there. So I know how you feel.<br><br>
While it did set me back a bit, I eventually recovered. So hang in there.
No races for me until the LVHM. These next couple of weeks are my heaviest weeks prior to the half, so I am trying to stick with my schedule without racing. I thought about the Emmaus 4 miler too, but am not doing that one either for the same reasons. I know I could run the race then go out for a few more miles, but I guess I am set in my ways.
Tempo run this afternoon ... windy again. If it is windy on race day I'll be prepared for it.<br><br>
2.2 miles warm up<br>
6 miles @ 7:37<br>
2.3 miles cool down
Welcome Don.<br><br>
15.4 miles today, giving me 44 miles for the week.
Thanks, Jill. One more tough week then I will cut back.<br><br>
Regarding the ITB, having you tried using a foam roller on it? I've found that it does a pretty good job loosening the band up.
