AM: 2 miles easy
PM: Best 80% I’ve done. Decided to just tackle it today. We did a mile warmup then 2 laps on the track, then straight into the 80. Mile on the track, mile on the block lap, mile on the track. First mile was 5:45, then just tried not to let the gap Morgan had on me get much bigger. The last mile was a struggle but I did better at working through than I did in my race on Saturday. Finished with 18:52, that’s a 45 second improvement. Then to the hill over the overpass and did whistle hills, 3 sets of 30, 35, 25. Worked hard on those too. Best workout I’ve had in a long time.
Then got some really disheartening news. I might have the beginnings of a stress fracture in my thigh. Nate’s leaning towards inflammation of the periosteum but I’m going in for an X-ray tomorrow just to make sure and will get those results on Monday. It’s gotten progressively worse and while I was rolling out my hamstring I felt some sharp pain in my thigh up on top. Quad muscles seem fine, pain is deep. I’m really hoping it’s not a stress fracture, I might cry if it is. I’m finally starting to improve, I don’t want to be set back! But for now I’ll be biking and pool running, I can do a couple miles on the turf tomorrow if it doesn’t hurt it taking a couple minutes break between each mile.
Weights later, mostly just did the core and upper body stuff.
