Running Accomplishments:

Marathon PR - 3:05 (3:06 at Boston)

Completed a dozen marathons and a handful of 50 mile ultras.

Short-Term Running Goals:

None, just regular strength and aerobic conditioning.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Maybe complete some races again.

Personal:

Started runnning more regularly in 2005 after years of mostly strength training.  I have cut back on endurance training since developing heart and thyroid issues over the years.  Reintroduced strength training and walking sessions for a more balanced approach to health.

5:30a outside 9.4 mi, right leg/adductor feeling better

Lunch time outside 6.1 mi, right leg/adductor still feeling "ok", I think slow starts are helping. 

Completed my abs routine after run.

5:30a outside 8.6 mi

Lunch time outside 6.6 mi, a bit faster than morning run.  Nothing new to report.  Still have some right adductor and hamstring tenderness that comes and goes.  Not sure what to make of it other than some adjustment pains.

11:30a outside, warm but cloudy out,  decided to run just once today, started to feel really good overall during last 3 miles.  Did some ball crunches and light single leg press afterwards.

7:30a outside, humid conditions and I was tired from the start, managed to eck out some decent paced miles, but I was struggling the last 3 miles.  Just not sure if I'm going to find my legs for the longer runs.  Perhaps it's the overall higher weekly mileage that is draining my Saturday long run plans. Hopefully my endurance comes around so I can get into 20+ miles.  I keep losing weight which should help.
