I completed an easy 14.35 mile run this morning bringing the total for the week to 66.7 miles - not bad given that I did not run on Thursday and Saturday. I felt the strain in my hamstring/groin throughout the run, particularly over the first few miles. While I have no problem running easy I am inclined to think that speedwork could aggravate the strain. I may have to give the 5k race on Wednesday evening a miss if I want to "compete" in the half marathon on Sunday next.
I completed the 14.35 mile run in 01:58:32 (08:16 pace @ 139 HR). While the pace was easy the effort (HR) was higher than it should have been - could be a result of a late night socialising on Friday (bed at 0320hrs) followed by an early rise (0710 hrs).
