Run 1.5 hours on a flat to rolling course. Keep HR in Zone 1-2 for 1:00. The last 30' are at race pace. Think about form and running pretty. Stay hydrated and eat! Stretch when done and add in Core 1, 2 or 3.
**********

Good confidence builder. Right foot just a little tender when I started but held up very well. Focused on relaxing my feet and running comfortable. Stuck with the same Brook's Ghost 5 shoes. A little sore when done, icing.

* Carried water with me, drank about 24 oz.
* Ate one GU Gel at the 40 minute mark getting ready for the 30 minute MS
* Hammer End tab before and after
* Recovery drink

Feet are better.  Icing the bottom of my feet is a different kind of pain!  And I even like ice packs.

Going to see how it goes tonight.  A little apprehensive.

WOW!  the bottom of my feet are sore, sore, sore.  Never really experienced this before.  As I said, nothing went well during last nights workout.  I have a long/slow run tomorrow and hoping my feet feel better by then.

Good news:  Did a hard reset on the Garmin and it seems to be functioning great again.

*****
What went right? Not much!
1. The Garmin wasn't reading my pace correctly, it was all over the place. I stopped it during the WU to reset but it didn't help. PACE/DISTANCE ARE NOT ACCURATE!
2. My left shoe felt like I had on a boot.
3. Lap five started pinching the bottom middle my of my left foot, felt like a blister
4. The bottom of both feet feel like I've been POUNDING concrete, ouch!
5. I miscounted my laps with everything going on and came home early. which was probably best!

Nice to be back in the water!
Started feeling motion sickness again around 425y. Had the arm bands on but I think they weren't in the right place. Hate to think I'm starting over with that!

10' wu, 10' cd. You are going to run 10x 800 at the same time as your goal marathon pace. For example, if you want to run a 4:05 marathon, you will run the 800s in 4:05. If you are going to run these without knowing the distance, then run them at LT -5 beats. Your recovery is equal to your work time. 4:05 work time equals 4:05 recovery time.

Should have been Sundays WO but moved to Monday. This will show my weekly totals a little off but heck, what's one day?
This WO was NOT done on the track so results might be a little different. 56* F, strong wind (mostly off my shoulder), overcast sky.
Only did a 2 minute rest, 4 seems a bit excessive, and I've been doing 2 minutes on previous similar WO's.
