I had a 2 hour lunch break today, so I went running.  I was a bit nervous about how my legs would feel, but to my surprise they felt great.  After 4 miles of easy running that was much faster than expected, I decided it was a good time to start mixing in some faster running.  I did miles 5, 6, and 7 at (6:45), then backed off for the last few miles

Total run 10.4 miles with an AP of 7:24  That's the fastest I've run 10 miles since before my injury!

I hurt my rotator cuff yesterday, I think taking down Christmas lights.  It kept me up all night, so I finally got out of bed around 5 and headed for an easy run.  I was tired and cold and felt miserable, so I quit my run at 2.2 miles.  Who would have thought an arm injury would cause me to have to run less?  It's probably good for my rest.

My arm felt much better this morning, but not 100%.  It didn't seem to bother me on my run, but I decided to keep my run a bit shorter than normal to make sure everything is fine.  I ran at the fast end of easy for 6 miles, then I did 6 strides for a total run of 6.9 miles.  I figure I better start doing some strides to work into the speed work nice and easy.
