:50 treadclimb. Will give myself .5 mile credits for tc days this year so I can keep track of these workouts, which are related to running, but quickly delete them out from actual running miles if I so choose.

Disappointed that my hip kicked in pretty hard, and otherwise a meh run. Progressed to 7.3 mph but had to back off, then built back up to 7.3 mph before warming down. Leg felt very challenged above 7.1 both times.

Warmed up :15 minutes, ran 8 x 1:00 hard, 1:00 recovery, progressive ending at 7:03 pace, warmed down a bit. Felt OK, better as the workout went along actually.

Feel much better but leg was wonky today. Did a progressive/pullback, moving up to 7 mph, down to 6.6, then up to 7.3 before finishing at 6.9. It helps to take a little pressure off the leg from time to time.

Realfit class. Ran 1.26 miles in 10 minutes, then a short warmdown. Plus some upper body stuff. Yikes!

Part of Realfit. Had 2:00 at 85%, 2:00 down to 70% HR. Got it up to 102% based on age, so will need to tweak the settings! Used it as a good opportunity to run some hard quarters, reached 6:58 pace on the last one, my first time sub-7 on the mill since the vertigo hit.

Progressive, went up to 7.2 then back down again as I'd tried on Monday. Works well for the leg, so I was able to slog on a little farther than before. My right heel is sore now, will have to monitor. These Kayanos are still holding up well, but their mileage/age may make me switch to the Dynamis soon.

Ran steady on the mill. Left leg had some issues toward the end but overall a pretty good run.

Good to run after a day in the car and meetings. Warmed up 1.5, ran a progressive from 7.7 mph -> 8.2 mph, going +.1 mph every 1/3 mile. Wd 1/2. Not all easy, but happy I was able to run pretty strong for a sub-7:30 mill mile at long last.

Good steady run on the mill. Dialed it back after I reached 7.3 mph to keep the leg moving, but going back up to 7.4 didn't bother it much. Decided to ease off at the end bc of 2 more intense days in a row though.

Realfit--core and tabata. Some running involved but not enough to document.

Figured I'd take it pretty easy after 4 days of more snowflakes than miles. Still felt a little difficult, but got it done.

Realfit. Core, weights, then 5x 2:00 hard, 2:00 recovery again. Hit the target HRs pretty much dead on, got to 6:58 pace at the end.

Steady run, only got to 8:20 pace but kept chugging away. Felt pretty zippy at first, had some leg soreness later but kept it under control.

Slow, with Shannon on sometimes icy roads out SH from the Y. A bit chilly--low 20s--with light breezes. Good to run outside at long last though!

1.5 wu, 8 x 1:00 hard, 1:00 easy, progressive 7.8->8.5 mph. Attacked it pretty intensely, but the hard running didn't feel all that exhausting--leg tightened on 4th interval though so kept to the paces. Think I should be able to amp it up again soon.

Didn't have mojo today, so a bit of a slog even at slow speeds. But all I wanted was an easy 4-5 so shouldn't complain.
