okay so decided to run the time trial today instead of waiting a week from last one which would be tomorrow. After realizing it was the benadryl taken every day last week after the swimmer's itch encounter that caused my significant joint pain in both my hope to hobble and last Fridays long run I am feeling more hopeful in my abilities. Despite the nagging attachment to the achilles pain that is quite inflammatory in the right heel (new spot from where all the plantar fascitis was happening) i just put one foot in front of the other and got myself to pull through it mentally. I got to the rec center at 7:50 after dropping off Courtney at school. Started my first mile and was like so not feeling it with the right foot the perpetual issue. I started at 1 mile at 8:57 and second mile made it two 8:41 pace after the first lap at 8:49. 1% incline. So I then decided to do some 0.1 mile pick ups at 6:00 pace. I ran five at 6:00 and four at 5:56. Two at 5:52 and one at 5:49. 12 total with a 0.08 rest run in between at 8:41 pace. I would wait for the tm to read 2.22 then up (or 2.42 etc) pace to 10 mph and start the 0.1 miles at 2.24 to 2.34 then bring the pace down to 6.9 mph til tm read 2.42 and repeat going up in pace as mentioned earlier. I was at 4 miles when I finished the 12th. Got off TM and took a water break and prepared myself for the SW time trial. I figured by running 10 to 10.3 mph earlier 9.2 start out would feel a heck of a lot easier only I had to hold it for three miles and increase my mile pace each mile. Moved incline down from 1% to 0.5% for the first two miles then 0% for last mile. I just have to make that last mile feel easier so I don't lose it mentally. I got on the TM ran 1 minute to get to 0.1 miles (so easy pace duh) then went right in to my time trial finishing 3.1 miles in 20:20. Take a minute off that and that's 19:20 for the 3 miles. 6:26 ap. So 6:35, 6:31 and 6:27 until last 0.14 where I picked up the pace to 6:00. Strong finish and so glad I held it together. Thought about quitting at mile two but talked myself out of it somehow. Once I get to the mile to go I feel better but still doubt I can pick it up. It was mostly my foot dictating my mind. I felt an incredible sense of accomplishment. Ran 1 mile cooldown at 8:48 ap.
