Monday: No Running. Left IT band/vastus lateralis is really painful. Doesn't feel like marathon soreness, just an insane muscle knot. Hurts whenever the quad flexes. Upstairs pain is no different than downstairs pain
Tuesday: No Running
Wednesday: 6.7 miles (7:04)
Thursday: 6.1 miles easy
Friday: 3 miles easy; 7 miles easy
Saturday: 17.1 miles (6:38) with 9.72 miles (6:12). Ran with three people I've never run with before: Daniel Lepage (former Tulsa runner), Jeanette Faber (2:32 marathoner who just moved here) and Lanni Marchant (2:31 marathoner I met in Houston, who is in town visiting her boyfriend most weekends). Felt really good and smooth.
Sunday: 9.4 miles (6:36)
Week Total=49.3 miles. Other than the quad pain, recovery went great. Not sure what which direction I will take training wise. I'm leaning towards running the Boston Marathon but it's not the most logical choice.
