    This is local to where I live. I know the dog owners and have met Famiglietti a couple of times. The video in the article is kind of fun to watch.

    I saw that on LR.  Little drama in the middle when the dog got distracted by the drone ... gotta love dogs!

          The dog mile thing was pretty cool.  I didn't realize that running with a dog could actually make one faster until it was explained to me that the dog pulling can serve as an "assist."

           

          Dumping off my week:

           

          My week: 60 miles,16 "miles" of pool-running, and 3000 yards of swimming:
          M: Yoga and 8 "miles" pool-running
          T: 12 miles, including 3x1600, 2x200 in 6:20, 6:14, 6:10 (400m jog between) then full recovery before 2x200 in 41 and 42.  Also leg strengthwork and 1000 yards recovery swimming.
          W: 6 miles very easy (9:21), yoga, and 6 miles very easy (8:50) plus drills/strides
          Th: upper body weights/core and 8 "miles" pool-running.
          F: 12 miles, including a 4 mile (6400m) tempo on the track in 25:48  (6:39/6:29/6:23/6:17).  Also leg strengthwork and 1000 yards recovery swimming.
          Sa: 10 miles very easy (8:23) followed by drills and strides, and then upper body weights/core and some DIY yoga.
          Su:  14 progressive, split as first 4 averaging 8:33, next 4 averaging 7:24, last 6 averaging 6:49.   Followed with injury prevention work and 1000 yards recovery swimming.

           

          Racing this coming Saturday.  I had plans to fly down to Florida and do the Gasparilla 8K, but I'm 99% sure I'm skipping - I'll stay up here and do something else instead.  The weather forecast for Tampa is for 70 degrees with 68 degree dew point.  If I want to race in that, I can just pick a DC summer/fall race.  Plus, I'm remarkably unacclimated for that weather right now.

                How can’t they change grades and not see who changed them? Administrator #2 should have asked the “IT People” to see who actually changed the grades. I doubt anything negative will happen to Admin #1. I applied for two more jobs Friday myself. Solid week of training.

                Show is bullsheet at this point. Another 10” fell yesterday. One of those “ it will lightly snow all day long so no one will do anything about it until dinner time” storms. I’m more pissed the spot I’d do my workouts won’t be clear, and it’s potentially freezing temperatures this week. Marathon training sucks.

                  DWave - Nice week. I'd skip that one as well, given the travel. I don't enjoy racing in those conditions at all.


                  OMR - Wow. Just wow. Nice cutback week, though.


                  Brew - Wishing you hadn't gotten rid of that TM now?? "Another 10" of snow", said no Oklahoman ever. We are supposed to get 2-3" tomorrow, but they keep pushing back when they think it will show up. My guess will be "never".


                  Me - Decent week at a touch over 50k over 4 days, all easy. I managed to make it to the local running club group run (a bit late), but still managed to find someone I knew to run a few miles along the river trails with. It was nice to have someone to run with again.
                  Conditions were a bit interesting - ~20* with a bit of a north wind. Nothing too bad to run in (though I wish I had better mittens), but fog and mist rising off the river ended up freezing to all of the trees on the south side of the river, while the north side was clear. Typically the club does most of their runs on the south side of the river (no idea why, since they're essentially the same as the north side), but we were on the North side Saturday and running conditions were quite a bit different for the different paths.

                    Time for me to check in here I figured. My name is Rune and I can do a full introduction once I start running again, but right now I am trying to get my hamstring tendon to heal so I am sticking with swimming these days. It sounds like I have a very similar injury as Pesto and Kcam, and it's been a real pain in the ass, both literally and figuratively. I noticed it in August first, kind of ignored it as it never was much more than a dull pain and it didn't seem to get worse (although it probably did), and finally saw a doctor after I was done in Amsterdam in October. Left proximal hamstring tendinosis, or tendinopathy is the verdict, and I'm now 4 months removed from any real type of running. I've had a couple of setbacks, first due to some overzealous strength training around the new year, then because I had to run a short distance (it kind of was an emergency). I will try to check in here and there to see what's going on and give updates about my progress. I guess I could post my swimming logs but that wouldn't make very much sense here

                      Sometimes. I told DW I could have done my 16 miler watching the Daytona 500 (yes I'm that Redneck) at her moms. 120" screen watching cars turn left in two single file lines for a few hours is "entertaining" to me. Ironically a friend traveled to Las Vegas this weekend and said it rained. He didn't do much of his long run as he was stuck on the treadmill. He's a "former cross-fitter" in my eyes.

                       

                      Also this. Technically it happens annually (Mt. Charleston is "in" Las Vegas) but this was at the airport. I'm sure all of the locals freaked DAFAWK out and took selfies with "all the snow" they received. Also, driving probably sucked since no one knows how to drive in Vegas.

                      Speed work today. I REALLY need to find out a way to count the number of Saturdays until April 27. I thought there was 9. It appears I'm in TRAINING WEEK 9 and there are 9-11 Saturdays left. 18 week plans need better instructions on when to start. Also, Saturday marathons are kind of annoying when training day is centered around Sunday races. It makes scheduling speed work annoying. If only garmin had a calendar to load everything in. Lastly, I noticed the actual screen of my watch cracked. Not just the plastic faceplate/screen cover on it. I'm holding out becuase I know I don't need 90% of the tech this watch has and the Fenix 5s is too expensive until I BQ and have to hang out with max in June.

                       

                       

                      Oh yeah, I entered a 3:00-3:19 group. I didn't want anyone here to think I was trying to hide that. Wink

                          Rune - I ignored my pain in the ass too, probably for about 8 months while I foolishly thought I could whip myself into good marathon shape despite that pain.  I finally gave it up after a tune-up race where I just realized it wasn't good to be fighting it.   I took off 3 full months from running (Oct, Nov, Dec 2018) and it still didn't get that high hamstring thing completely fixed.  I started back running in January and also, coincidentally, started heating the shit out of my hamstring.  Couple times a night and also on the way to work in the morning.  Guess what?  All the f'ing rolling and massaging and bridges and BS didnt fix it but that heating - f'in eh - I have zero pain or niggle with that hamstring now.  I use those pads for heating your back, throw it in the microwave for 3 minutes then sit on it.  It's great for using it when driving to a workout.  You get there with your hamstring all warmed up and ready to go.  I since bought an electric one for use at home.  Very happy now.

                           

                          My week - got in only 32 miles but there was some very good 'quality' in there.  A 6X1000 at 5K pace workout and a 5.6 mile super hilly run at tempo pace.  I have a 5K coming up this Sunday and I am starting to feel good.  Did a final workout of 4X1200 at 5K pace followed by 4X200 at faster than that today over my lunch break.  Nothing but easy for the rest of the week, with some strides on Thursday.  Bring it on!

                              As someone who has also had high hamstring issues - yup, increasing blood flow to that area is the trick, and a heating pad can help.  I did rounds of PRP and prolo, which is the same theory (increasing blood flow to the area), just much more aggressive.  And much more expensive.

                                The last time this happened it took a few days of rest and a few days of very light running + foam rolling to get back to normal. Hoping I can resolve it similarly this time, as I'll be disappointed to lose my current fitness.
