    Rest day today for me. Did 30 minutes yesterday - warm-up, and then some speed work for the last 12 minutes. Still recovering slightly from a pulled hamstring.  Sprints probably weren't the best choicce, but I didn't reinjure it.





    I'm not slow, I'm rear security.

    Thoroughbreds run fast and finish early.  Clydesdales run slow and pull beer wagons.  I'll be a Clydesdale.

    Yeah, speedwork puts a lot of demand on the hamstrings, especially if you have weak glutes.  Best choice is to just run easier miles while it is continuing to heal, and even after it feels 100% I would give it 2-4 weeks before you run hard on it again.

    Speedwork for me would be a relative term, considering my offensive lineman stature. But I do appreciate the advice. Sometimes I let my inner, young Marine convince me to do things my outer, retired Marine shouldn't do.
