Foundation Program - Week 6 and 7 reports

Hi All! I know that most of you will be excited about the Jackson Hole Run Camps this week, but I wanted to maintain the discipline of sharing my Foundation Program weekly reports.

Well, Week 6 went great and I stuck to the program perfectly. My long run at the end of Week 6 went great and I felt good after 140 minutes run. I started Week 7 enthusiastically and after Day 3, felt a 'twinge' on the left side of my right calf muscle. I decided to take a couple of days off just to be sure I don't damage anything. Unfortunately, both my kids picked up a bug in school and went down about the same time. This bug got me on Friday and I have just about got feeling good today. I will take this in my stride with a smile and start Week 7 again.

Thanks Patrick! I am on Day 4 of the program (repeating Week 7)  and so far, so good

Yep. I ran into trouble at that point as well. I injured my right achilles a bit. I ended up resuming at week 4 after a week or so of light use. From there, things have been great. I am in the middle of week 11 and getting ready to retest next week. I am feeling great this week in particular and have not had to make an effort to keep my HR down in HRZ 1-2 during ez runs. In fact, I find myself having to peridiocally pick up my pace just a bit to get back into HRZ 2.
