I woke up this morning to the patter patter patter of rain. Ah, yes! That singletrack run is going to be super fun! Splash splish splosh through the puddles. Leaping over rocks and roots. This 52 degree weather just might be a little warm…until I came to a part a little exposed to the wind. The park was quiet, except for the other 6-7 hardy trail runners I saw out there too.
This makes 10 days of running straight, averaging about 40 miles per week at this point. My achilles / heel area is a little sore, which isn’t terribly unusual, but everything’s under control with a good stretching and massage program. In comparison to how I felt through triathlon season with all that additional volume from biking & swimming, I feel totally rested and energetic. I’m enjoying this just running stuff, but I do need to get back on the bike to get the iBike all set. Tomorrow will be dry, so that’s a good time to do that.
