7th Week (Out of 18) of the RLRF Program and I'm thinking things are coming together. Today I ran my Repeats and almost hit all the paces exactly and the recoveries were very close to the program specifications (I took an extra 30 seconds on the last two recoveries).

As a note: All my body parts seem to be holding up pretty well. The only "slightly" sore area is my glute-ham on my left leg which has always been an irritant. I've been using a tennis ball to stretch it and it has been helping. I'm not mentioning my glute-ham for any other reason than to document it...again, it's no different than it's been for as long as I can remember.

I hope everyone is haveing a great Christmas week...the Blog has been really quiet.

Luke 1: 30-33

 30 The angel said to her, “Mary, do not be afraid. You have found favor with God. 31 See! You are to become a mother and have a Son. You are to give Him the name Jesus. 32 He will be great. He will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the place where His early father David sat. 33 He will be King over the family of Jacob forever and His nation will have no end.”

IJR... It looks like to me that you nailed the workout! Those hr numbers look great too. Nice!

I'm glad it is all coming together. I am still trying to just get in okay shape before I start....or I am just being lazy! :)

Just say butt! It is easier to write than glute-ham! haha!

Rye & Steam,

Yes, I think it was a good workout. I'm hoping it's working up to that magical 3:16 marathon!

I like to say glute-ham it makes it sound like I know what I'm talking about :-)

Excellent repeats - 6 x 800 is a tough one. Nice paces as well.
