Start the week off with a 5 mile run in 42:30, good for a pace of 8:30/mile. November will need to be my race month I think, based on my fitness. I plan on doing the Wyckoff 5K in a couple weeks, but I need some more training. I am going to start looking for some options to train towards in November. As I look ahead to the next 3 weeks, I am going to progress this week and next week in my long run and my overall mile per week. However, the week of October 6th to the 12th, I plan to back off a bit. I haven't done that in the last month or so and it is an important part of fitness and injury prevention.
The foot thing is ongoing. Nothing new on that development. I must say though, with the increase in mileage, I am having to not be feeling any adverse affects on the foot. I really do not think it has anything to do with it, however, up until about a month and a half ago (give or take), I had been a religious follower of glucosamine chondroitin pills twice a day. While on vacation and since being back, I have been really hit or miss. I am going to make a conscious effort to get back and follow that intake precisely. By the way, Target brand is cheap and contains the same amounts of Glucosamine and Chondroitin as all the major brands.
