line ’em up, knock ’em down

May 13, 2007

Minor set back this week when I pulled a muscle doing a stride before my workout on Wednesday.  I pulled up like a hurt sprinter and tried to work and stretch it out but it didn’t really feel right.  I still got on with the workout of KM repeats but I didn’t feel smooth the whole time.  Thursday morning I went to run and didn’t make it a minute before I had to stop and was forced to take the day off.  Lots of icing and therapy and I was able to finish off the week running at a lower intensity.  I still got 160km in for 6 days with a great workout Monday on the trails and a good effort Wednesday on the track. 

My next race will be a 1500m in Hamilton at an all-comers meet on May 26th.  I’m using it as a tune-up for the Reebok Grand Prix in NYC on June 2nd where I’ll run a 5000m.  NYC should be a really fast race and a good opportunity for me to get after a standard with some bodies around.

    Man, what the hell are you doing pulling a hammy doing strides? Were you trying to rip like 10 or 11 secs or something? Geez, that’s the first I’ve ever heard of that. But, hey just wanted to let you know that we got the new USATF elite athlete handbook, and one of the things they had in there were the all-time performances indoor through 2006. We looked up the 5k, and your time would leave you about the 100th fastest time ever! congrats on that. I’m sure you’re way more excited about that than some world ranking. We all have a ranking Reid, some are just lower than others. Anyway, take it easy on that leg, no funky movements, and good luck in the 5k at Reebok.
