Got back down to the Mill after work to get 'back to work'. 8 miles on the mill. 55:49. I don't want to get too greedy. With 3 weeks off and only 35 miles on 6 days last week, I don't want to jump up too high with the volume just yet. Ribs feel a lot better when I'm running and sitting around but laying down and trying to sleep on that side is still very painful.
I talked to Downtown Darin Brown again for about 4.2 of those 8 miles. He was banging out some miles in preparation for this weekend's Great Bay 5k (which I'm sitting out of). He's looking for a big PR (masters). That's his PR course so we'll see. So far at the mill it has been only him and I ...no other souls dare enter the depths of the most painful room in all of East Madison. Come January 1st it will be filled with the dreamers again....for a month at most. Most fizzle out within a couple weeks.
