Tested out the glute muscle with a light fartlek workout. Ran with Becca. 2 mile warm up. 5-4-3-2-1 minute intervals with 3-2-2-1 minute recovery. 2 mile cooldown.

Still feeling the strain, but the workout was doable.

Rolled out last night. Didn't feel too terrible today. I thought my leg would hurt pretty bad, but it didn't! Progress!

That felt really long. It's amazing how fast your fitness seems to drop off after cutting back for awhile. Biting wind this morning. Out 1300W to 9000 S. Back on 2200 W. Beautiful morning! Finished with a marathon paced mile (6:12) 7:03 average.

A little longer this morning, because I don't know if I will manage to get any running done while on vacation.

Nope. Didn't run on our trip to Capitol Reef. And didn't run yesterday, because I was doing all the laundry from Capitol Reef. I need to kick the laziness and get going again! 7:18 average.

Long night with puking kids, but I got up and got it in. It definitely helped that I was meeting Becca for a run. Here's hoping I don't get sick. 7:24 average.

Gym morning. 15 minute warm up. 4 x 3 minutes at 9.5, 3 minutes at 9.7, 3 minutes at 10.0 mph. The most I have done is seven sets,but I was pretty tired after four today. Gotta build up again. Five minute cooldown.

Every workout I get through before I catch my kids' flu is a victory!
