Had a little tweak in my left Achilles tendon (not the injured one) the last two days, so I´ll take it easy the next few days. It´s all right again today!

120' easy including 3 strides to tell my legs to run faster at the end. Could be better, but right now mileage is all that is important.

Legs very well rested after the long run yesterday, think that's a good sign, isn't it?

This week I will run not as many miles because of a triathlon relay on sunday. I will take the 5k run-part and will have to run well because the mayor of our city (and my boss therefore) will take the bike-part. (-;

4.970.000.003.118.08

3,8 k warm-up

5,5 k in 21:50 in a triathlon-relay. The course was a bit hilly throught a forest with a difficult underground. Often the lumberjack put crushed rock on the course, so it wasn´t very comfortable to run. Happy with that time on this ground and out of base training. Nearly didn´t do intervals at all before. Now my team is "Saarländischer Betriebssportmeister" (company-facilitated sport activity in my state) and am not fired because my boss was happy with my effort. (-:

rest day

Have some pain at my left kneecap which came after tempo-run last friday. After the 5 k-race last weekend, I ran 3 days easy and took a day off, then that tempo-run. The only reason I can imagine despite I am old (-: is that I ran parts of the race and the tempo-run downhill. Knee hurts only when I bend the knee, but it hurted every step of the long run yesterday. Don´t think it will be a big thing, but I will have to respect it this week.

rest day

Think this is what I am affected by: http://fastrunningblog.com/forum/index.php/topic,1571.0.html

I don´t really know what I did wrong. It seems like everytime I am going beyond 50 miles/week and trying to implement tempo (carefully), my body reacts with inflammation: last year Achilles tendon, this time kneecap. I believe that I don´t have a good balance between mileage/speed. Last year I barely ran 1.250 miles for the year. Maybe it´s a bit too much to run >50 miles per week this year.

Right now, I am thinking about limiting miles to 45 miles/week and 160/month to stay injury free.

If there are any ideas/suggestions, I would appreciate!
