Just under 12km this morning, with hill repeats on muddy trails in the rain.
Keep on rolling, just a mile to go. Keep on rolling my old buddy, you're moving much too slow.

An easy 10K in the humid drizzle this morning. Felt pretty good though.

I hurt myself on a 30 mins run last night :( Started having sharp intense pain in the groin area... this came out of nowhere and it was like spasms and it will still keep going after I stopped running and was walking. I had to take advil in the middle of the night because it hurt too much. Today, it's a bit tender but no more spasm. I have no idea where this is coming from. Day off today for St-Jean-Baptiste, grey day and I can't run! Boo! :(

This morning was the first run since Saturday night, and I ended up cutting it short because my foot was really hurting. Not too much short - 12 km instead of 13 km - but that was the quickest way home. Interestingly enough, the heel pain is largely gone, but I am now having nerve pain along the side of my foot. At least that's what I think it is - a burning sensation rather than a deep muscle pain. I felt it towards the end of Saturday's run, and afterwards, but it faded away. And it's fading away now. So, I am contemplating my next move, but I think the first step is to not run for a few days. I'll see tomorrow how things feel on the elliptical. Bah humbug.

Hope everyone else is feeling much better!

a shade over 4 km this morning - started in drizzle, ended in full rain, but ran into a friend on the way who I hadn't seen in a while and we stopped to chat even in the wet!

I got home and was taking off my socks and C asked me why - I explained so I wouldn't get water all over the house. Her response - "But you had shoes on Mama! Your socks shouldn't be wet!". If only her logic held true.

Holiday here in Québec. I'm resting my toe which I hurt tripping over a tree root on yesterday's run. Probably no running tomorrow, either. :(

Speedwork Tuesday: 4x1M threshold intervals (5:53, 5:53, 5:52, 5:51) with 428m jog recoveries + WU/CD for 15K. Quite warm and my legs were a little sluggish but it was good to get some work in so soon after the last race.
