Recap: Week 4

I think things have slowed down a bit - probably because of the holidays. I only have 2 runs in my running log, but I know I did a third one in there somewhere.

At any rate, I'm up to 5 minute run, 5 min walk intervals. I'm doing my walk at about 4.2 MPH (14:20 min/mile) and my runs at about 5.5 - 6.0 MPH (10:20 - 10:00 min/mile). So far, so good.

My doctor says that I have a mild case of plantar fasciitis so he's given me a brace to sleep in, some anti-inflamatory drugs and we'll possibly look at orthodics next week. We'll see how all of that goes.

I also went up to Vermont this weekend - which killed off some of my running time. I was able to use the elliptical for about 40 minutes at a moderate pace, which is better than nothing. Hopefully, I will be able to get a full week in this week. The 5 min run/walk intervals feel pretty good - so I'm not too worried about increasing them up to 10 min run / 5 minute walk in week 6.
