Easy run before work. Concerned about right tibia, so cut it short. Felt soreness on the spot where I had the stress reaction.

I'm running 9 NYRR races to qualify for the 2018 NYC Marathon. This was race #2. The race was in Central Park - and hilly, but less hilly than last month's half marathon. It was pretty cold and a bit windy - but wind didn't seem to be much of a factor. My goal was to run 6:45 average pace (projections based on my last half) or faster. I ran 26:42 for an average pace of 6:41. Placed 7th in my AG and was second woman on my team. Very happy with this result.

1. 6:45 - right on target (rolling hills)

2. 6:42 - some downhill recovery and rolling hills

3. 6:55 - big hill (Cat Hill)

4. 6:19 - flat / downhill this mile. I ran without looking at my watch and tried to keep passing people in front of me; ran especially hard in last quarter mile.

Lots of gas in the tank for the last mile. Could have run the other miles a little bit faster for a slightly better finishing time. Overall, happy with result.

taking a few rest days in a row this week. Feeling run down. Might be getting a cold. Worried about re-injuring tibia.

Blizzard on Thursday - Central Park is the first running spot that gets plowed. 6 miles moderate in Central Park. One big loop at 7:30 pace.

Took 5 days in a row off last week because I was feeling like I was going to get a cold and was worried about tibia. Felt great running after so much rest. Glad I took the time off. Track workout at Chelsea Piers. 8x400 m with 400 recoveries.

30 minute swim. Drills and then 8x100yards. Am gasping for air too much on last 25 yards. Need to figure that out. Also my legs are sinking when I get tired. That could be why I am gasping - having to work very hard when form declines. +kettlebell and getups
