So I decided to run now that my toe seemed to be healed enough. There was no more pain. This data in the chart below comes directly from my Apple - Nike + iPod log.
|Jan 14, 2009||11:12||1.64||Just ran in the AM before work since I had an Italian class at night. I felt ok. Not enough to really evaluate.|
|Jan 16, 2009||16:00||2.3||I ran on the treadmill at gym after doing elliptical and bike before. It felt pretty good. My toe didn't really hurt too much. My hamstring was ok as well.|
|Jan 18, 2009||33:50||4.9||It was a nice Sunday morning and very sunny and slightly warm (70s). I averaged 6:52. I felt like I had to work hard on this run. My toes was ok but the hamstring was giving me slight issues.|
|Jan 21, 2009||25:42||3.78||Ran before work. I had more time soI did more. Averaged 6:46 pace and I felt it. I was working hard. I run faster when temps are cooler. It was probably in the upper 50s. Toe really wasn't an issue and neither the lower back.|
|Jan 24, 2009||44:42||6.46||This has been my longest run since mid-December. I had to work hard. I maintained 6:54 pace, which was ok. I was going for around 7:00. I definitely felt pain building in my lower back. Even with all the core exercises I have been doing the last 1.5 weeks I still don't feel great. I at least maintained a good pace, the pace I want to maintain in the marathon. Still, I have a long way to go.|
