Running 1:04:56 [1] 6.19 mi (10:29 / mi) +219m 9:27 / mi

Ug. Did *not* feel like getting out of bed at 6:30am the first day after coming from west coast (so felt like 3:30am ish), but I knew that if I waited any later it would be much more unpleasant b/c heat + humidity. So got a nice run in around Patti + James's house in White Plains. Did some 1 min pickups on the way back, when I had woken up a bit more!

Went swimming with Sylvia + her cousin Cal at their hotel pool midday. Nice to be in the water!

My cousin's wedding in the evening was amazing and very much suited her and her groom. Happy to have been part of their celebration!

Bam! Paper resubmitted before upcoming epic travel with S+T, final step of which is WOC! Happily am squeaking in the middle + long of COCs next weekend, excited for some good O before WOC! Will try to dig up a map I can train on around Westchester and another around Rochester for over the next week... fitness is coming back, but really could use some more time on a map!!

Stroller jog/run 40:12 [1] 4.41 mi (9:07 / mi) +122m 8:24 / mi

To daycare and back.

Running 15:42 [1] 1.71 mi (9:11 / mi) +46m 8:28 / mi

Rollerskiing 52:21 [2] 7.41 mi (7:04 / mi) +101m 6:47 / mi

That felt good! Really nice to be out doing a skate skiing motion even if on rollerskis. Do feel like that did a ton more for medial glute strength than a few exercises now and again. Will see if I can get Steph to bring skis up to cottage out East to work in a few more times before WOC.

Crosstrainer 33:36 [3]

2 x 14 min tempo on elliptical. Just isn't as hard as running, ah well, better than no tempo.

Running 47:03 [1] 4.51 mi (10:26 / mi) +58m 10:02 / mi

Easy run with Kelly (stats) and Mark (CS) around Eastmoreland and the canyon. Chatty, nice to run with others and knee didn't hurt, yay!

Strength 7:20 [1] 0.09 mi (1:21:24 / mi) +2m 1:15:54 / mi

Quad stretches and squats.

Running 48:00 [2] 5.23 mi (9:11 / mi) +116m 8:35 / mi

Argh. Was going to do Tempo Tuesday, but knee is iffy. Dull MCL pain, that feels like it will get worse if I go hard. At least it didn't seize up, like on some earlier runs. Something isn't balanced- think knee must be tracking wrong and thus making MCL do more work than it should. But I don't know what needs strengthening versus lengthening, which is frustrating. I'll keep going with the medial glute theory, as it's the best I've got...

I feel like skate rollerskiing might help gain strength in a way I need. Maybe I'll try to dig those out and give a try. Think it'll either help or really hurt and I'll know that quickly.

Strength 16:45 [1] 0.22 mi (1:16:09 / mi) +7m 1:09:29 / mi

Squats, quad stretches, medial glute strengthening, hammie stretches.

(rest day)

Looooong day in the car with a toddler back from Truckee. Google quoted us 9h15 min of drive time at the beginning. We stopped early for coffee and then midway for lunch (Klamath Falls) and that was it.
