- run 10.49 km in 58:09
wack run. meant to do 12 km but lightning started while i was doing laps at the track and the wind was moving in the wrong direction, i.e. it started on the other side of my neighborhood and was moving quickly toward me. so i cut the track a few laps short and headed home, trying to stay under tree cover and zipping across open areas. by the time i got to the main street in my neighborhood, about 1-1.5 km from home, i could see the lightning making ground contact, no delay between strikes and thunder. a friend lives right around there so i ducked into her guard's booth. he tried to call her so i could go up and wait it out in her place but he didn't get through. so i waited with him until it seemed like the lightning had moved on a bit. nice dude. did the last km pretty quick.

- pull up myo-reps x 10+3+2
loooooool i am weak

- push up x 16
just to match reps

- hollow body hold x 20s
barely worth journaling

- stretch

mileage was down substantially last week because i took a couple of nights off. one for work, and one because of the dead legs. i'm just going to write it off as a recovery week and bump up over 42km for the coming week. legs felt great tonight, fwiw.

- run 8.78 km in 44:50

- stretch

the skin right next to the inside of my left big toe nail has been giving me trouble, rubbing against my sneakers and, i noticed today, my desert boots. irritation may have started with the latter, actually. when running it's only annoying for the first km or so, after that it's fine.

- run 8.29 km in 41:54
went out a bit too quick (first km 4:56) and apart from the third km didn't go above 5:04. some weird tightness in posterior left knee. out of nowhere, not painful. rest tomorrow and then plan for saturday is speed, but i'll be careful with the knee

- stretch

- pull up myo reps x 10+3+3+3
still weak, sheesh

- warm up 2 km, 500m on/off [1:59,1:50,1:34,1:52], cool down 1.4 km
all on road so the first intervals was entirely uphill, third entirely downhill. ran with gf so warm up and cool down were slower than usual, but that's okay. felt good, no issue with posterior left knee.

- run 12.38 km in 1:08:36
nice and easy, 5:32 average pace

- stretch

looking ahead i've got a bunch of travel next month, which will disrupt training. might try to take one more heavy week, a taper/rest week, and then do a 5k time trial in two weeks. i'm not as fit as i'd like to be, training has been inconsistent and not as high-volume as it should over the last few months. but i'm likely to lose fitness in may anyway, so might as well see where i'm at.

- run 8.25 km in 41:07
4:59 pace, slightly too fast, but first 5 km were on the track and it's just easier there.

- push up x 20

- hollow body hold x 20s

- pull up x 8

- stretch

calves tight, especially right. must do some SMR and extra gentle stretching.

24-hour headache from wednesday evening to thursday evening. never severe enough to be a migraine but included some nausea yesterday late morning to late afternoon. took two separate naps yesterday and slept for nine hours overnight. plan is to make up for the lost days today with a very long (for me), very slow run. we're talking 16km. then tempo tomorrow will be practicing 3:55 pace for 1k's.

- run 11.04 km in 1:02:09

- stretch

well, did the slow part but not the long part. decided that it was foolish to randomly jack up distance that much. so this was better than nothing but not great. left ITB bugging a little now. and left shin was announcing itself during the run, not even to the level of mild discomfort but just there. to be monitored. can't wait for my parents to come with my new shoes.
