4 TM miles at the Y this morning. 5.0 for 1/2 mile, 6.0 for 1 1/2, 6.5 for 1, 7.0 for 3/4, 7.5 for 1/4. Felt good, no pain.

Yesterday walking down stairs my left achilles winked at me. Hmph. I thought it was over. Guess I need some more eccentric heel drops.

5 TM miles at lunchtime at the Y. Very windy today, and it's starting to warm up so the snow is getting to the gooey stage. Not warm enough for slush, but not running weather. Very crowded at the Y. Glad I snagged a TM. Lots of sad people today.

Did a progression run, which is what I always tend to do on a TM as I just want to finish. Is there anything wrong with continual TM progression runs? Outside I tend to keep a pace pretty steady, so I'm not worried. Just wondered if the experts out there who happen to peruse my blog had an opinion. Started at 5.0 for 1/2 mile, then 6.0 for 1 1/2, 6.5 for 1, 7.0 for 1, 7.5 for 3/4 then up to 10.0 for the last 1/4. Felt great. Kept my body low and slow and just let my feet glide across the ground. Wish it were that easy to run 6:00 pace outside.

Noon Boot Camp at the Y. Kicked my butt as I overdid it a bit. I used to go regularly and was in better shape with things other than running (abs, upper body, etc.) but I haven't been doing anything except run for a long time. So when I go I expect that I can do a lot more than I can. I'm stupid. Nice to do something besides just run, though. Need to start doing my pushups and planks again.

4 TM miles, 4 outside. Didn't have time to do 6 outside like I wanted. No watch, but I was moving like I haven't for a while. Felt great.
