A tiny attempt at speedwork

I ran my regular 5k route this morning but tried to run intervals on the middle of the course.

A little faster than Wednesday, and I don’t feel like I completely wrecked myself.

I’m trying these compression sleeves. I threw them on this morning for my run, just to see how they felt. Maybe I should be wearing them post-run. We’ll see. I need to put in some longer runs or I’m not going to be able to do this marathon. Tomorrow I’m aiming for being out for 90 minutes. It won’t be 9 miles, but it might be 8. I’d be fine with that.

Do you wear compression socks? I’ve had so much trouble with cramping in my calves during races that I am wondering if they might help.

Runner, Eater, Mother, Tweeter

Amy, July 2013

I'm a thirty-something suburbanite turned ruralite living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Wife, mom of two, eater of all things delicious, and a runner. This is where I blather on about running and health. Baby Number Three will be here in November (so yes, I'm a little crazy), and I'm running through my pregnancy for as long as my body's willing and able. There's also more of me at amyupnorth.com.

Twin Cities was not one of our best races but one of our grittiest. The look on my face at the finish line is an accurate and encompassing summary.  My favorite photo is the last one of my not usually outwardly emotional husband. 
Kudos to #tcmarathon for switching to an outstanding free photo service with reasonable purchase options!
