Doc says...

Basically... cool it on the speed work, and increase resistance therapy/ training to 3x a week and I could be ready to race by June.  For the next 2 weeks or so, I'll cut back the track to 2 hard foundation tempo workouts a week (not fast) and 3 resistance workouts.  So, a sample 7 day cycle:  track, resistance, rest, resistance, track, resistance, rest... or something like that.  Doc thinks the injury is in the top of the rectus femoris.   I'll start this cycle tonight with resistance at #6, rest tomorrow, and maybe race that 800m on Sat. or do a track workout.  Undecided about Sat.

  1. skip the 800 race. continuing to run in any way compromises the healing process. ideally, you would stop running entirely, and aerobic up by cross training on some activity that does not engage that area.
