Weekly Summary: 50 miles for the week. Obviously easy and light on the miles this week but after basically no running last week, I didn't want to jump hard into this week's mileage. I just wanted to make progress and make sure that if it was an overuse issue I had going on, I didn't further it along. By weeks end I felt a lot better but not 100% by any means. I still have some pain and stiffness on the right side that is manageable right now but I haven't tested it with hard running just yet. When I go up on my toes or try to land a tad heavier on the right side, I get throbbing pain and all sorts of bad things happening. If I just stick to a 'normal' easy running gate, it seems like it's getting better. I'll try to fit something in 'uptempo' this coming week and we'll see. I'll also try to get back up into something that resembles real mileage but I'm not too displeased with this week's efforts given the circumstances.
My periodic training partner here on the East Madison Track Club has some good video editing skills... not to mention some skills on skis. Here's the latest scenes from the MWV...
