I've been slacking hardcore. OK, I've been working like a dog, but I've been slacking on the blog and other aspects of life. I don't have much interesting news from week 3. I tried to fit runs in between arriving home late from work and the various wet things that mother nature has decided to throw at us over the last week. I never even got to do my intervals this week. I tried to do some on Wednesday, but between it being a bit warmer and me just being dog tired it didn't work out so well.
With all that said, I did hit my prescribed mileage for the week, although I ran less that the first 2 weeks when I went a little above and beyond. My hip started acting up again later in the week. I finally resorted to taking anti-inflammatory meds, but not until after my runs. I also went and googled more stretches to do. I will probably continue to take it easy as I have a heavy race load coming up again. I think I'm going to take this round of races a tad easier that my last rough stretch. Also doing 2 half marathons within a week for the first time every - go cumulative fatigue training!
