Ugh!!!!!!!!!!! 15.5 miles running, plus 6:00 pool running and 1:15 on the arc-trainer.
Monday: In the morning, 75 minutes on the arc-trainer plus upper body strength training. In the evening, 3.5 miles very easy outside (9:04 pace).
Tuesday: 12 miles on the treadmill, including an aerobic workout of 8 miles at marathon pace (first 6 miles at 8.6 mph (6:59 - 7:07 outside) and last 2 miles at 8.7 mph (6:54 - 7:01 outside -- the treadmill seems to be about 8 seconds per mile faster than outside). Workout felt relatively easy, and a confidence booster, but then my left foot went “pop” at the very end. No warning, just “pop”. Not much pain either at the time, but I hopped off anyway, iced, and rested for the rest of the day.
Wednesday: off. See podiatrist in am. X-rays confirm oblique fracture of second metatarsal on left foot.
Thursday: 90 minutes easy pool running. Best pool run ever – after 48 hours on the couch, felt wonderful just to move.
Friday: 40 minutes pool running, including a tempo workout of 3x10:00 at tempo effort with 2:00 recovery. Followed with leg strength training.
Saturday: 2:30 pool running (“long run”).
Sunday: Upperbody strength training plus 80 minutes easy pool running.
