Training is good … feeling the improvement

This morning is the first time my calf felt like it could handle an extended hard workout. Mind you, I didn’t do that, but it felt as if I could.

My last three runs have been low HR easy runs.

7/11 6.1 53:32 8:47 pace/140 HR (hot and sticky this morning)
7/12 5.4 44:36 8:18 pace/140 HR
7/13 6.1 51:04 8:27 pace/140 HR

Now, none of these runs are anything to write home about (or to really blog about), but the fact that my calf didn’t bother me on any of these is very positive. If I keep this up until the end of July, I imagine I will be able to start doing some faster training. I plan on 10 tomorrow and hope to do a 15 miler on Sunday. That is a lot of back to back mileage for only being back 6 weeks, but I think I can handle it; plus, I crave it and I need to feed that craving.
