Felt pretty darn good given how my running consistency has been lacking since starting college courses.  Taking prereq science courses before filing an application for med school.  It's been a while since I've tried to crack physics and chemistry problems.  I have to stick to my running as well.  It's been there for me through thick and thin.

Easy 10.5 mi around the lake.  Ran the last 0.5 faster.  I'm going to try to string together 2 decent weeks before tapering 2 weeks before TCM on Oct. 4.  I haven't been all that consistent lately, but I really want to crack 3 hours at the race.

Missed another day yesterday.  That's ok since the top of my right foot was bothering me again.  Either tied my shoe too tight or when I run I can tell my right foot slides into position from the outside instead of straight forward.  I think that is putting some strange pressure on my fore foot structure (more angular).  Looks like this week will shape up to be "half-way" decent instead of decent as I planned.  For some reason it's become hard to stay focused on running.  Oh well, if I can just run 8-12 miles a day for the rest of my life I would be extremely happy.

Miserable run so I cut it a little short.  Legs were barking the whole way.  Feels like I'm coming down with something.

Feelng better today.  I had some kind of cold sore throat thing over the weekend.  I was in a total funk and very tired.

Felt good until last mile when top of right foot started to bother me again.  This has been an on and off thing since May or so.  Some kind of tendonitis linked with the arch I believe.  Feels better when I run really high on the fore foot.

Still here and laying low since my right foot is bothersome.  I don't want to drag him along to TCM in two weeks.

Completed 18 miles today.  Ran moderately hard in the middle and easy on both ends.  Foot feels better when running faster.  Hurts more when I slow down.

Wow, what happened to the week?!  Two exams at the end of the week just blew up my run schedule.  Oh well, suppose to be tapering anyway, but not feeling very confident for the big run next Sunday.  Do I ever though??
