Week 8
Pretty good for a cutback week! Last Friday the podiatrist fitted me for orthotics and then taped me up again. It was too hot to run on Sunday, so I bumped my weekend run to Monday. I felt great! On Wednesday I actually decided to do speed intervals in the morning before Spudds. The tape had come off by that point, but my foot still felt surprisingly okay. The Spudds workout was hard and left me quite sore afterwards. Today I did an easy lunchtime jog with my friend Raj just to work out the stiffness before my next long run on Sunday.

Feb. 21: 6.43km
Feb. 23: 6.11km
Feb. 25: 4.65km
Total this week: 17.17km (10.7mi)
Total this year: 179.03km (111.9mi)

To meet my goal of running 1100km in 2011, I should be at 169km right now. So I’m currently carrying a buffer of 10km. I expect that to grow this week given that I’ll be running my longest distance ever: 14 miles – 22.5km! Longer than a Half Marathon…
