AM - 11.25 miles with Finn on a windy chilly morning as a front was making its way through. This was an interesting day as initially I was not super motivated to run too far outside and in fact had considered doing a longer run indoors to manage my HR better without all of the hills outside, but Finn really wanted to run. So, my thought at first was to go about 7.5 or 8 but the route I chose gave me options - and because I felt reasonably decent around 2-3 miles I opted for one of the longer turns, which took me out Taylor road. At that time my HR was in zone 2-3 and I was running about 8:30 pace for mile 4 but when I turned on Batesville and the long uphill, my HR got up to 160 and correspondingly, (or maybe because of it) the left hip injury just seemed to be weak and fatigued - as if 5 miles was the limit for it today but I pressed on, bypassing the Triple Crown turn (mostly because I wanted to avoid the very steep hill to Freemanville) and turned later instead at Providence which honestly at that point my pace slowed to just under 9 mins and though I was ok on the flats, and downhills, I wanted to get at least 10 miles without too many sharp climbs, so I ran the cut-through at Summit Hill elementary and headed up Thompson Rd. The two climbs on Thompson and the one in North Bluff when my HR was already in the high 150's were humbling. When we started up the climb on Dinsmore, Finn unexpected stopped to throw-up and so I decided to take the shortest option home down the trail behind the old Milton country club. My form was completely favoring my right side for strength to carry the left side functionally weakend muscles through. Nothing hurt, but I probably looked pretty bad finishing up essentially on a tired set of legs and nearly bonking. Pleased with the pace just over 9 mins which last week was almost a minute slower and the distance was 3.5 miles shorter. Hoping to recover well and see additional progress next week. Never had a marathon where I was training with the goal of being able to endure just to finish - but this is the reality given the last several weeks of set backs.
