I can feel the progress …

This morning I embarked on a ten miler with hopes of feeling nothing – nothing in the calf. And, that’s how it went. I feel as if I am nearly fully recovered from my torn gastroc. It has taken a while, but I think I am there. Granted, my runs have been at low 140s HR and the pace 8:10-8:40, but I put the mileage in today and the last three days and felt little of anything in my calf. It is very positive news.

The run this morning was relaxed and easy. The pace was slow 8:20-8:30 for the most part. I listened to some music and relaxed – not thinking about much of anything but running smoothly. I did think about my half marathon race last year and when I looked at my watch after this thought drift, I was at 150 HR and picking up the pace. I really want to start running harder, but I am going to wait until the end of July. Overall, a good day. Hopefully the 15 miler will go as well tomorrow.

7/14 10.5 miles/1:29:09/8:31 pace/140 HR
