This post is pretty boring so I apologize in advance....
Monday:Am: 15miles in 1:44:57 (13 miles at 6:44-6:55 pace according to mr.gps)
Wednesday: AM: 66min (9miles)
Thursday: AM:20min (hurting soo bad after driving to and from nashville on wednesday, 11hrs in the car)
PM:2mile w/u&c/d Bulldog miles (4x300m, 2x800m, 1x1600m, 2x800m, 4x300m)
the 300's are suppose to be 400's but it was extremely windy and I just wanted one workout where I didnt have to battle it the whole time. ran the 1st 300s at what was suppose to be the pace i ran the workout, but I ended up gutting throught it pretty well and ran alot faster. After the mile, Houston actually walked up to me and said "where did that come from...5:16 ??thats not current 5k pace!." seriously, I have not done any thing faster than 10k pace in like, 7 months. All the 800's and the mile were on mugshots, with hills and wind. so i was pretty happy with the results...all over the place... 62, 62, 62, 62, 2:49, 2:43, 5:16, 2:48, 2:36, 59, 59, 58, 57
Friday: AM:5miles PM:5miles, abs (it was hailing and lightning, so I actually did this 5 miles by running approximately 50 laps in the turf room...barefoot. Sounded like a good idea at the time.
Saturday: 10miles tempo in 61:50 (6:10 pace)
Sunday: 40min recovery run
So I have been having some extreme cramping issues, so bad that I actually thought something was seriosuly wrong with me. The doctor told me I just sweat alot and I need to hit the salts HARD. SO I have been...sometimes I eat soup for breakfast, my lunches containt over 40% of your daily values of sodium, I dont drink water any more it is diluted gatorade and cytomax..lots of bananas, lots of salt in everything even my water glasses. On wednesday I had to drive to nashville for a job interview and I cramped so bad the whole time it was painful, especailly going to sleep at night. Now, I have had some issues with a thing called "warm leg syndrome" it feels like someone is pouring warm water on different parts of your body. Supoosably it is caused by a B12 deficientcy. I am really having a hard time getting enough calories and vitamins this time around. Im not sure if I can run many half marathons if I cannot even get the nutrition aspect right.
On another note, the womens team headed to kentucky yesterday for the SEC Indoor Championships. So far, our womens multi's have been lighting it up. Results will be posted here:
