AM2 - another 5

PM - off. stomach was absolutely killing me by the end of my shift, i can barely stand straight. should be good to go tomorrow, even if it’ll all be in rain.

AM - 5. slept in on accident

AM2 - 15. took a lot out of me but that's the feeling i live for. max HR for the run was 130, my resting HR is 34 and i'm under 160 pounds for the first time since november. not in killer running shape yet but those numbers say i'm close to breaking through to that kind of shape again

PM - 5. another storm is rolling in to continue what weather.com told me was “one of the south’s wettest February’s so only gave myself about 4 hours of recovery between runs. i’m not in 4-a-day shape but that’s the recovery i’d give myself between those runs so at least it isn’t a foreign concept. actually felt really good with that in mind; def could have gone longer

AM - 5. slept in again

AM2 - 15. same pace as yesterday's 15, but felt way easier. very happy about that. could have gone for 20 but decided to try for 10 after work instead

PM - 2 after work. would have been fine for 10 if i rested but working 5 hours on your feet isn't recovery, at least when you're actually nursing something. this knee is driving me absolutely mad

AM - 5 on the treadmill. knee had a very fast turnaround after that post-work run yesterday. i’m sure it’s not gonna vanish by tomorrow or anything, but better than it feeling way worse.

decided to take the rest of the week off to let the knee(hopefully) heal up fully. it's been getting better basically every week, but it's still present enough that it puts a pretty hard cap on my training where i'm limited to about 60% of what i'd be doing without the issue. 60% being 100-110 miles a week just shows i'm in great shape right now :) so i decided i'd rather just get back to 100% sooner by taking a little more time off than later by constantly training and getting a little stronger day-by-day. i can hear the bloggers thinking "about time he has some gd sense". gonna go do some upper body/hips/core at the gym in a minute, then take it easy until sunday

oh also, the past 35 weeks(from the start of my 13 week 100+ mile streak in mid-june to last week) i've run at least 100 miles 20 of those weeks, averaging 122 those 20 weeks. so i guess that'll make me sleep a little better at night in place of the exhaustion from running.

sotd: the champ - ghostface killah. this song gets me hype as hell
