On the weekend, I was thrown from my horse and in the process I re-ripped my hamstring. You can see a video of it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TymB8EbEZqc.
So when I went out for speed work tonight, I really didn't know what to expect. But I did know that if I was able to run at all, it would be slow. I ran with Michelle and Nancy, who were looking to do 8 minute miles -- ish. Here are our splits for the 6 mile repeats (with a 2:30 break in between):
So my times generally got faster -- but still only to just above marathon pace. I was in pain for most of the runs -- although it did get less painful as time went on.
