Another Week!

Feeling pretty good this week. Unlike previous weeks, where running reminded me of my hamstring, even if it wasn't bad, this week I felt nothing odd in my left hamstring. I was able to comfortably push my intervals, and feel like I'm adding some good capacity and base. I will start adding speed in May, and running at the all-comers meets.

Total - 32
Intervals - 200, 400, 600, 600, 400, 200 @ 5:20 mile pace, short recovery; 8 x 2 minutes, ~600, short recovery

Rainy Week

Missed two days because of rain - had to do one day with 2 easy runs. So, I only managed one day of intervals - but they were good capacity/limited recovery intervals.

Base - 32
Intervals - 6x400 @ 1:18 (limited recovery)

Adding Intervals

Since I did only base last week, and my hamstring and shins were feeling better, I decided to add medium-fast intervals back into my workouts. I managed to run intervals twice during 6 milers, and felt pretty good. Also, one of my 4 milers that was supposed to be easy, I ended up running at a medium pace. Still a long way off from my shape for last year's season, and the hammy still feels a little "off", but I'm being careful, and I'm optimistic!

Base - 32
Intervals - Untimed (400, 400, 600, 600, 400); 3x400 @ 1:13, 1x800 @ 2:38, 1x400 @ 1:13;
Tempo - 4 mile - 26:18.77 (6:51.38, 6:29.11, 6:37.67, 6:20.61)

Base Week

Back to basics... because my shins and left hamstring were feeling a bit off last week, I only ran base this week. I am feeling good, so hopefully it did the trick!

Base - 31
