Got a little peppy, ramped up to 7:03 pace by the end, ran 40:30 total with last 2 miles in ~15:00. Felt a little stressed at times but pretty good at others.

Bit more of a trudge than it has been lately, and my headphones conked out at 12 minutes, but still made it for a decent run. At home on the good mill because of weather.

Bit of a grind, but got it done. 52 minutes plus a little change, so quite slow overall but a bit faster by the end.

Didn't want to slog again, so ran 16 minute warmup then 8 x 1:00 faster (7.9-8.6) and 1:00 recovery (6.8). Felt pretty hard but got it done.

Made it 5 at work, taking it slow. The new ear buds made it a lot easier.

Mill hills, though slow (7.0) and not steep (max 4 degrees). Right butt/ITB really hurts after tennis though, so felt way more difficult than it should have.

Wimp weights x 2 and 12 minute fairly hard row. All the mills were full, but not sad--ITB probably can use another day off, and got a good workout anyway.

Disappointing run. My right leg got tighter and more painful as I went along instead of loosening up. I walked briefly a little after 20 minutes, then jogged until I got to 3 miles. I'll work on it and hopefully be able to run with a lot less discomfort on Friday.

Took Friday off, busy in the morning and didn't feel it in the afternoon. Came down a bit ill, so that was probably it. Glad I had tennis this morning and hit well, then had a nice time with Erik hitting golf balls inside.

Felt rather ill. Still made it to the bike for a 20-minute ride and walked up an incline for 15, so blood moved.

Finally back on the mill, but stomach STILL off, ugh, and leg still quite sore, ugh. Made it a slow, sketchy 3 miles and didn't want any more at all.

Xmas was an SDO but regressed badly with GI issues that evening into Thursday. Ugh. Did a gentle 30 minute Peloton today and felt better than expected.

Both legs are really tight and making running even a short distance rather challenging. Gave it a go on the mill anyway, not pleasant but made it.

45-minute Peloton, really worked it and set new PRs for everything. Happy to have apparently bounced back relatively quickly.
