This week has been a week of recovery from my strained hamstring. It has been a good week in that I picked up 18 miles – mostly by walking. Today and Monday I went out for some recovering runs. We have two local tracks, one at the high school and the other at a local college. I can only use the high school track during non-school times. Most of my runs are during school time, so I don’t get there much. But the two run walks I did were very good – every thing feels good with no pain in the hamstring. This week the plan is to do more of the same – walk/runs – intervals of walking and running. There were some good moments during my running intervals. Many of those short runs were at just over an 8 min/mile pace – which shows that I need to do more of that – speed work. November was a good month for running/walking. I collected 75 miles this month – one of the better months of the year. Hopefully I can eclipse that in December.
