I tweaked my hamstring in the gym this week and thought that it was all good but the speedwork on Saturday seemed to aggravate it.  I got in 4 miles tonight just to warm it up for some stretching and rolling and that seemed to really help.

I had just randomly jotted down 30, 40, 50, 60, and 70 miles in my training log and figured that would be a good build up before officially shifting to my 100 mile training. I also told myself that I wasn't going to push things and was just going to run whatever felt good and that resulted in 31.5, 32, and 36 miles plus some stairs.  I will try to hit 55 - 60 miles this week but won't push too hard.


  1. I like the construction of the 110 but the heel drop is too much for me. May try their 0's.

    1. I run in the 101 (10mm), 110 (4mm) and BF (0mm) and don't even really notice a difference. I guess I am just not a sophisticated BF runner! I know some people go crazy over even the slightest drop.
