my world at this moment.

It's been two weeks since my last post, representative of my world at this moment.

So, what have I been up to lately?  Trying to heal.

Now, let's see...

Today I did repeat miles at the Y.  6:50, 6:35, 5:40.

Sunday-can't remember

Saturday-repeat miles

Friday-worked out on campus....Mile, Mile, 800, 600, all on treadmill

Thursday-lifting at Y

Wednesday-nothing.  Hurtin'

Tuesday-nothing.  Hurtin'

Test pilot: Checking to see

Still injured, but I wanted to give it a shot.

I spent a good deal of time warming up and stretching.  

Test pilot: Checking to see whether I have a 60-second 400 in me.  12x150.  I figured I'd run 4 in 23 secs, 4 in 22 secs, and 4 in 21 secs.  I'd walk 250m back to the start, for a 3-minute rest


The workout went pretty well.  I did feel pretty tired by the end, as I am not very well conditioned.  I iced my knee, damn Osgood Schlatters.

Not good.

Tues, 1/13-Drove to Westtown School's track at 6 AM for a workout, but the track was too icy.  I headed back home for a little running in the neighborhood.  I figured I'd do two Rustin-plus loops in 35:00, or 4.3M at about 8:00 mile pace.  Unfortunately, the pavement was icy and I was running late.  I wound up doing one loop in a pedestrian 18:30.  Not good.

I have a fourth appointment with Dr. Miles tonight.

Mon, 1/12-took off

Ouch. Hip flexor.

Monday, 12/29-Went to Westtown School's indoor track for a threshold workout with Shannon Grady and Ryan Comstock.  I had already worked out that morning...3x1 mile at the gym.

The idea was to do increasingly faster 800s, with Shannon recording my heart rate, taking a blood sample, and writing 800 meter time after each run.  She had a little help.  I started at 3:50 and worked my way down to 3:00.  I wound up having 45 seconds' rest between each 800.  After completing seven (7) 800s, at Comstock's I finished with a 69-second 400.

Tuesday, 12/30--Another session with Dr. Miles. After a third session with Dr. Miles, I thought I was ready for a workout.  Nope.  Dr. Miles said no.  Besides, my hip flexor was killing me on Wednesday.  Dr. Miles has gotten the better of me.

Wednesday, 12/31-Ouch.  Hip flexor.  Jogged at the Y.

Thursday, 1/1- Took off

Friday, 1/2-7:00 mile on donut, lifting, 6:20 on donut, 8:00 running in pool.
