8 miles (4 with james). springdale/fairview loop. it was legit snowing while we were running (yay, GA!), although the pellety flakes were just flinging about and nothing was actually sticking.

currently on standby regarding work. i'll be very sad if it's cancelled because i have time-sensitive food projects that will be ruined!

i rode the struggle bus twice today, first figuratively and then literally.

i bailed on my workout after two reps (8 x 600m). my hamstring tightened up after saturday's race in the cold, but it was even colder today (mid 20s with a wind chill of 9). i warmed up for 3 miles and still couldn't get my body sufficiently loosened up to run fast. as soon as i started sprinting, my hamstring started screaming at me to stop. so i did. i jogged a few laps around the oval and then did the jog of shame home.

then. i was 45 minutes late for work due to my bus getting stuck at two (2!) railroad crossings. possibly the single best way to torture me is to have me watch a mile-long train go by at 10mph while knowing i'm late for something. then make me do it again 5 minutes later. 

it's probably the closest i've ever come to exploding.

12 miles -- out to emory with james and back home on my own. took it very easy. my hamstring felt better today, but there is still a bit of tightness and a dull ache when i'm running uphill. i need a wrench massage.

i'm hoping the botched 5k followed by this hint of injury is only a minor spill that i can clean up with a good workout this weekend. i need to get some confidence and momentum back over these final two weeks before new orleans. just a week ago i was entertaining the idea that i could possibly be as fit as i've ever been, but the last six days have me worried that i've started to unravel (again).

it's like putting together a puzzle ball. you get all of the pieces lined up just so, and all you have to do is wedge the final piece in at the top. but it has to be done with the right balance of force and finesse. too much force and everything shatters. too much finesse and the final piece never clicks into place.

ATC workout at the chattahoochee river:

2 miles (600 jog), 1 mile (600 jog), 2 miles

12:38, 5:58, 12:13

targets were 11:40 and 5:40, so this was a giant fail. my hamstring felt okay -- i just couldn't get up to speed in the cold (another sub-30 morning with ATL's wicked wind).

two more weeks to new orleans, ahhhh whatwhy
