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.

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.
