12x400 track workout done. I forgot how bad I am at speed work… (at Hillside High School)
6 miles done. Haven’t eaten since Saturday night due to severe tummy sadness/GI distress. Today wasn’t my best run but considering I didn’t throw up or poop myself, I’m considering it a win.
This week has been a long one….so I think that the best way to ring in its conclusion is with new shoes!! As runners, is there anything better than new gear? I think not. Maybe signing up for a new race…
My Chicago Marathon training officially started yesterday (did you not see the 4 page spread in Runner’s World and the fireworks?) and I’m in need of some new kicks to log all of the miles to come.
PureFlows, I have enjoyed you despite the plantar fasciitis and stress fracture. I think I might just need a bit more support for 50+ mile weeks. Don’t worry, I will keep you for speed work and shorter races.
note the bad-ass blood stain on the left toe.
I’m off to the running store after work!
How are you finishing out the week?
