Monday: 8.6 miles (6:23). The lower/middle of my hamstring was insanely tight a few miles in. Was going to do some strides but thought it would be too much on the leg. Things got a little better at the end until my hamstring revolted while running down a hill with .4 miles to go. Walk of shame back to the school
Tuesday: No running. Got a massage and on a bright note, I found a new good masseuse. She put a whooping on me and said the inside of my hamstring felt really inflamed.
Wednesday: .2 miles (7:54). Knew it wasn't going to happen.
Thursday: No running
Friday: 2 miles (7:27). I thought I'd be good for a few but the hammy still really hurts.
Saturday: 2 miles. I was going to do the Hot Chocolate 5k but after trying some strides, I knew it was going to be a bad idea, especially since there's a huge climb, followed by a downhill in the last mile. I knew the running gods were telling me not to run because I couldn't find my watch, phone or running hat (it was 20 degrees, so I had to settle for my Batman hat with one of those puffy balls on top).
Sunday: No running.
Week Total: 12.8 miles. Terribly frustrating week. Things were going super well, I was transitioning over to some fast workouts and I was feeling like a million bucks. I was thinking this would be a short term thing but it doesn't appear to be getting any better. I was going to race the Mercedes Half-Marathon next weekend but I doubt that will happen. I also have another 2-3 important races in March that may not happen now. Hopefully I can resume training by the end of next week.
