BOOYAH, birthday week! I kicked some ass. Sunday I did my longest run ever, which you already know about. Monday and Tuesday were just rest days. Wednesday was Spudds, and as a birthday present he took it pretty easy on me. Thursday morning I did a run around the neighbourhood, and that’s when I started to notice some issues with my right glute and hamstring. I ran again today at lunch, and I was definitely feeling it in the hamstring. I’ve pulled it. I’ve just slathered on some Voltarin and I’ll do some icing too. I’ve got another two weeks before my next super-long run, so I’m not too worried about it.
Mar. 13: 27.8km
Mar: 17: 6.19km
Mar. 18: 5.35km
Total this week: 39.34km (24.6mi)
Total in 2011: 265.76km (166.1mi)
To meet my goal of running 1100km in 2011, I should be at 232.7km right now. Wow. I’m fully 30km ahead of pace. Just have to keep it together through these next three months of marathon training!
