5.77 Miles Easy

Mile 1 8:18
Mile 2 7:33

Mile 6 7:48
Total Average Pace: 7:47

The foot is still hurting and doesn’t seem to be getting better. I’m starting to believe it is the shoes that I have been wearing for the past few months, the Nike Lunar Glides. I’m going to go back to the Adidas Bostons and see if those fix the problem. Thursday I’m going to do my first workout in a while. I’ll warm up with a 30/30 mile and then attempt to go 2 miles in 10:10 and then do another 30/30 mile. My workouts are going to be a little different now. They will be focused on running a faster pace and holding it. Each week I will hopefully add on some distance and hold the same pace. I will also be doing more plyometrics. Back in my late 20’s I used to be able to dunk a basketball, I’m hoping to get some of that explosiveness back just in time for track in the summer. In summary I will be running my workouts a lot faster but I will be running my easy days a lot slower. On my easy days or when I’m feeling a little sore, I may cut it a little short. My whole goal is to have enough recovery to run as fast as I can on workout days.
