No Doubles this week!

After racing a 10K last Satuday and then running 16 more on Sunday on snow and ice, I woke up very sore on Monday. My quads were torched like I ran a down hill marathon. This was supposed to be the 4th week of a 6 week test of doubling 3 days a week. After a conversation with Coach on Monday, we decided to cut back. By the time Thursday rolled around, I felt like I had some good pop back in my legs. I cruised through the first 3 miles of an 8 miler at 6:22 pace and felt great. I decided to start running a cut down and ended up finishing the next 5 in 28:39. Today, cruised another 8 miles. Looking at the weather, we should have some decent footing Saturday and Sunday so I'm looking forward to a couple longer runs.

Next weekend, St. Pat's 8K. The last time I ran one of those, I was a senior in high school and ran a 28:47. I don't think a PR from '92 counts any longer so here is to setting a new PR next weekend. Best of luck to all my friends running Corktown and the upcoming St. Pats races. Also, Kris out in Maryland. DO WORK!

The Recovery Sock Sponsorship

Today I returned home to some great news. Recovery Sock, a product I have used and loved for the past year, offered me a sponsorship opportunity! Needless to say, I am thrilled! I was told by them, "Anyone that races as much as you do and is as fast as you do certainly deserves sponsorship! We at The Recovery Sock would be happy to sponsor you!"

With this sponsorship, I am able to provide a code to be used at their website, www.recoverysock.com, to give friends a 15% discount on all regular and sale items. The code to use which will be active by March 3, 2011 is jl001dw.

If you have never tried a compression sock, this would be a great opportunity to do so at a discounted price. These socks have definitely improved my recovery time by reducing the amount of lactic acid in my legs. Please let me know if you have any questions about the product. Thank you Recovery Sock Team!
