I am getting back on track, sort of, in regards to my running schedule. Last week was busy, busy, busy and I wasn't able to squeeze in one of my short runs. I am up against a similar situation this week with only one weekday with nothing but running scheduled after work so I am going to have to really flex the schedule to make it all fit.
Tuesday - Week three of East Coast Swing 2 and we get sweaty enough in this class that I am going to count it as cross-training.
Wednesday - Six crappy miles I posted about previously. I am still proud I gutted through those.
Thursday - Three easy ones around the neighborhood. Infinitely better than the day before. I also did my home strength training program after the run.
Sunday - 12 down by the lake. Slow and steady but done. I had leg tightness for about the first six miles but it loosened up after that. I also did a shortened version of my strength training while waiting for the interminable Super Bowl to end.
Weekly Mileage: 21
Coming next week: a new one day distance record for me (hopefully). Also, much home stretching, changing my work ergonomics and a painful yet incredibly relaxing massage have improved the piriformis situation. It isn't 100 % yet but I also no longer feel the need to yelp in pain.
