After throwback Thursday its Setback Friday. Running on a sore left leg just like olden times. Not my plan for this week and not my favourite training week lately.
At least I don’t have a 15 pound weight embedded in me anywhere, but that’s about the only silver lining I’ve got for this one. Yeesh.
Running 42:03  9.74 km (4:19 / km) +17m 4:17 / km

Well. There’s that.
Back to the Wednesday night tempo run with burlington runners. Was ok for close to half of what I did but died on the pier and couldn’t bring it back. Was several hundred metres behind by the end.
I’ve been here before and am pretty sure I can improve if I keep going. Was really hoping I’d handle it better. When it got down to 4 minute kms I was not able to hang. Which could be discouraging but I remain optimistic. This is the best I’ve felt for years after all.
Also a big night for garmin statistics.
58 vo2 max predicts 17:43 5 k, 36:45 10k and a 2:49 marathon all of which are not only wrong but plainly insane. In-sane. I just nearly croaked Running 5 k in 20:42 which is the fastest 5 km I’ve clocked since I’ve owned the watch.
You know what’s missing here - aside from physical fitness and carrying an extra 10-20 lbs - is the willingness to suffer. Don’t have much of that at all just lately although I did talk to Patrick at a party recently and could have done more of that if I had to.
Taking the day. Feeling vaguely ill, scratchy throat, chills, etc. Maybe it’ll go away overnight.
stationary bike 40:08 
On the bike at fit for less with Jenny.
207 HR. Assuming I have a 150 vo2 max and a 5 minute 5 k prediction to go along with it. Stupid Garmin.
Strength 45:00 
Legs and core.
Running 30:04  5.86 km (5:08 / km)
ahr:138 max:147 shoes: Mizuno Sky
Tired legs. And core.
