PM: 6.1 miles in 55' on a Woodway Curve.

Ran with Megan after teaching and office hours. Running on those treadmills is hard. I've only ever tried a brief jog on one. 9:00 average felt really moderate. I think if you were a light lad who knew how to lift his knees, you'd do okay. Campus is quite hilly and if I get brave I might run around there.

AM: 11.1 miles, averaged 8:58. Stridlek Workout: 3 (6 x 40") with equal distance recovery jogs and 5' jogs between sets. Felt decent, but not on the warmup. Felt fairly fast toward the middle and end.

Late: psoas release and hamstring AIS. Plantar f. seems unnoticeable, likely due to not standing on concrete all day.

Good week overall. I feel more or less normal. Running was okay. Getting back my focus overall I think. Just taking it slow overall and rebuilding into a faster runner at some point. Lots of patience.
