Work sure got busy this morning, so I am just getting around to posting this mornings most excellent workout.

First I lifted weights (full body).  Then I did 30 minutes on the eliptical.  Then I ran on the TM for 3 miles.  First mile starting very slowly at 10 min pace and building up.  Mile 1  was 9:00.  Then a ran the last 2 miles at 7:30 pace and boy did that feel good.  I kept having the urge to jump to a 6 minute pace, but I was able to talk myself out of that a few times. 

Total run 3 miles  24:00

My foot felt great during the run.  I've had a few mild pains this afternoon, but nothing too bad.

HyperSpeed Miles: 3.00

Rhett I am happy to hear that you had a "most excellent workout" good for you keeping it in control until you are fully healed.

Awesome, Rhett!!! I don't know how all you speedsters do it. You come back from an injury and you're still able to run break-neck speeds after all that time off.

The speed is there just waiting for the foot to co-operate. So happy you had an excellent workout. Keep up the good work.
