Planning on an easy 6-8 on the treadmill. Right leg feels better, but no need to do anything drastic at this point.

-Update-
OK, so I jumped on the treadmill at a 7:30 min/mi and my calf felt fine. Hmmm. I dropped it down to a 6 min mile over the next few miles and everything still felt fine. Hmmm. I was curious to see if I had any pain in my calf, so over the course of the next 1.5 miles, I dropped down to a 5 min mi. Everything still felt fine.

I have been rolling my leg muscles a TON, and I have slept with my legs up. I also took a hot bath and soaked my legs in epsom salt. Maybe that helped to sort things out.

Easy to moderate swim today. My shoulder is feeling better, which is good news, but it is weak. Need to get back into the pool to strengthen upper body again.

Run
  • 1h 18m 10s
  • 11.03 miles
  • 07m 05s /Mi

Ran 11 today. Right calf def. is strained. How'd that happen? Ran easy, kept pace constant, and avoided any surges or speed.

So, a quick comparison of my 2012 and 2015 training. Very similar volume, HOWEVER, the 2015 volume was all done at MUCH faster paces overall.

Run
  • 51m 46s

Plan is for 8 today and 12 tomorrow. That'll put me at 45 miles for the week. I know that's still up there, but it feels like I've hardly run this week.

-Update-
I have a strained right calf/achilles. I have no idea how it may have happened.

Well, another month in the books. 213 miles this month, and 217 miles in January. Would have probably been closer to 225 had the month been a few days longer. Feel pretty strong right now, despite the strain, and look forward to the rest of taper.

Run
  • 47m 10s

Tready - 2 mi w/u, 1 mi mod, 4 x (.5 hard + .5 ez), 1 mi mod, 1 mi ez

Feel better today. Not really sure what is going on, but I suspect it's just a bug I'm fighting off. My son has not felt great as of late and I think I may have contracted whatever he had.

Run
  • 50m 05s
  • 7.01 miles
  • 07m 08s /Mi

Delayed entry again this morning. Tough to get motivated to run in a cold, windy drizzle, especially as I don't feel great, but got it done.

I wonder if I feel like this b/c of taper, a bug, or just general tiredness. Louiskie says all three. Since when did he start getting smart? :P

Run
  • 33m 40s
  • 5.21 miles
  • 06m 27s /Mi

Delayed entry due to the snow. Came in a little later than I wanted and only got to run 5 miles.

May try to run later, but I have a ton to do.
