I started a regiment of Alieve Saturday evening and decided to ride my bike in lue of a long run this weekend (not that I could have run anyway). Rode to church 25 miles and then back home 25 miles at an avg. speed of 17.5 mph each way. (So 50 miles total.) I am getting stronger on the bike and know from past experience it will keep me in somewhat good condition, it just takes a lot of time.

My foot was sore but the biking was bearable.

With the regiment of Alieve my foot felt much better this morning so I went out for a 7 mile run. The weather conditions are improving: 70 degrees, 50% humidity and 50 deg. dew point .

My legs were a little tired from the 50 mile bike ride yesterday but nothing was sore.

Again, comparing this run to the same run less than a month ago, I have improved a full minute with the same HR effort. Also, I almost hit a 6:XX mile on the last mile without really trying. I'm making improvement despite the little amount of running I'm able to do. I've averaged less than 30 miles per week over the last 8 weeks, since I started back running.

I decided to push a little harder today than I have since I started back running. Fastest pace and highest HR for any run at any distance. I could feel the lactate in my legs nearing the end of the run and my left hamstring got a little tight. All in all it was a good run though. I originally planned to run 10 but was running short on time so I made it 8.5.

My foot is feeling better with the regiment of Aleve. The weather is better but still warm enough to get a good sweat on.

Still trying to decide how to run the Long Beach Half Marathon this weekend but I've pretty much decided to just run it with Callie and hopelly help her hit her goal. I think I'm in about 7:20 condition right now but if I run with Callie it will be more like 8:45. The weather is supposed to be warm (I think actually in the high 60's to start) somewhat like what I'm running in right now. We'll see...
