Quick one...

Overall a good week. The goal for this week was to PR at the 5K distance and get a long run in. Here is how the week went.

Monday- 4 mile easy. 36:50.
Tuesday-Fartlek style 4 miles. I wanted to know what 8 min pace felt like. I was planning my race strategy and I wasnt sure what my first mile pace should be. 35:56, with a 3rd mile of 8:12. I think I hang with that.
Thursday-5K. See last post for details.
Sunday-Long run of 18 miles. I didnt even make it a mile. Lower back stiffened up. Funny, my back has been a little sore off and on but nothing too bad. This morning it didnt loosen up. Walked back. Miserable day.

I am sorry to hear about your back. I hope you heal soon!

Bummer about the back, might need to add some more stretching to your training?

Bummer about the back, nothing fun about a sore/tight back. Feel better soon.

Great 4 mile fartlek though!
