On the good side...This run was about 30 seconds faster per mile than a month ago on the same run with the same HR effrot and one minute faster per mile than the same run two months ago with the same HR effort! All this improvement while only being able to run an average of 30 miles per week. :-)

On the bad side... My foot pain just won't go away. For some reason last friday it got really sore, I could hardly walk on it so I had to skip running Sat and Sun. I did bike Sun but it was painful. Started taking Alieve again and was able to run this morning on a pretty sore foot.

Dang foot is really bothering me but I had to do something. I'm in Palm Springs for a trade show so I went to the fitness room and ran the elliptical with some resistanceto make it feel like running for 15 miles around a 9:00 pace. I know it's not running but close enough for me to count.

Another day in Palm Springs. Still struggling with the foot, but it doesn't hurt quite as much.

Please don't give me too hard a time as I ran the elliptical again for 10 miles at 9 min pace. (I know it's not really running )

My foot was a little better and I decided to run on the TM instead of the Elliptical today. I haven't figured out what causes the flair ups of swelling and pain but it's really been sore for the last few days. It was very sore when I started and seemed better as I ran but afterwards back to very painful. Averaged 7:50 pace with some good speed 6's and below on some short 1/4 burst, then back to mid 8's.

Saturday...started a regiment of Alieve again to take some of the swelling out.
