Did another day of doubles. Foot continues to improve and felt back to "normal" today. That means no pain or discomfort at all while running and the foot only feels a little tight when I'm not running.
Next few runs will be very slow. Tomorrow I plan on eight slow miles on the trails out back. Saturday I plan on 30 miles on the trails at Pineland Farms and will run it at the pace I do 100-mile races (wicked slow, walking most uphills and running the rest slow). That will leave Sunday with only around three miles left to get over 100 miles for the week. I feel on track to reach this goal. Energy is great and the legs are tired, but feel up for the task.
Ran the Saco River route and purposely kept it very slow throughout to ensure I get through the day. Run felt very comfortable as a result. Battled a very strong headwind on the way back, which seemed to blow at it's hardest on the uphills.
Ran 15.3 miles @ 9:01/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - N/A (didn't feel like wearing strap)
Mid 40s to lower 50s, partly cloudy, very windy.
Shorts, long sleeved shirt, two short sleeved shirts.
Seemed especially short and sweet after the past handful of runs. Met a friendly dog while running who tried to run with me for a while but fortunately he turned back home.
Ran 4.7 miles @ 8:37/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 149/159
Mid 50s, mostly cloudy, very windy (gusts 30+ mph)
