AM-12 miles this morning at Liberty Park/Sugarhouse area. Ran a simulation of Jake Ks lactate shuffle workout but started out slower at MP effort and then increased intensity every minute until reaching 5k pace effort in the final minute before the recovery and hardest segment. 8x3/1 minutes with 1 minute jog recovery. Long cool down later.

AM-6 miles with 4 at MP.  Broke the speed limit this morning but I was feeling good so I went for it.  Oh well...

I think I have finally figured out the hamstring and sciatic issues and it's a combination of things. I have not totally gotten rid of this issue yet and perhaps never will. However I was doing some reading and discovered that the lack of knee flexion seems to put more load on the hamstrings and thus resulting in strain and tear.  I'm not sure how this all ties into the sciatic nerve but somehow I think it does. All I know is that between an adjustment perhaps and focusing on knee flexion with the hips up and forward  has greatly reduced these symptoms lately.  Don't you just love imbalances?

PM-No run. Busy today..

AM-12 mile steady state run.  Ft Union/Highland Dr.  Hammy and sciatic nerve a bit bothersome still today, but definitely feeling more balanced and on the mend generally.

PM-Easy 4 miles tonight after work.

AM-10 miles easy with speed changes to loosen up.  River parkway course. 

AM2-10 miles with last 5 at MP effort. 9400s/7th east.  Took a rest and stopped at Starbucks for a mocha and water then took it out to finish hard.  Not quite the same as a long run but similar results probably.

Just got an e-mail.  Ogden is a go!
