My favorite old buddy high-hamstring tendon-bum-itis shut me down pretty quick during this race. Guess I must have really aggravated it the week before. Attempted going out at 3:30 pace the first few miles but after mile 2 I was having major hamstring pain on left leg with every step. Also made me run funny so my left foot was slapping the ground weird and ended up with a big blister than just added to the pain with each step and altering my form enough to set me up for further injury.

So ended up doing the slow-run/walk the rest of the way. Not fun at all feeling fairly intense pain with every step. Very happy to just finish and also have Kim drag me in after she caught me around mile 24.

Time to take some time off, figure out what kinds of rehab I need to do over the winter to prepare me so I can handle faster running without always aggravating all the dumb -itises. Also considering bagging marathons and sticking with shorter stuff which doesn't beat the crap out of me so bad.

Did mix of walking and very slow jog (10-11 min pace) just to see where I'm at. Felt very old and rickety.

Mix of run and walk with Kimi. 5 miles total and I'll count as 4 run miles.

Nice & easy. Left high hamstring is still pretty grumpy.

Sticking with my jog/walk routine for a while until the bum-itis is gone. Pretty much every 1/2 mile I walk for .10 miles and run pretty slow the rest of the time around 10-11 min pace. Or sometimes I just keep walking and bag the jogging. Shoot for around 60 min every day.

Ran up a few hills. Getting a bit nippy, first freeze is probably not too far away.

Got out in the sun with Kimi on a nippy but beautiful morning. Went long today since I won't be running tomorrow.

The bum-itis seems to be fading away, hardly noticed anything today. This is good.

More fun with Kimi up and down the Center street hills. This time as an added bonus we also got a very stiff headwind on the uphill.
