    Between a croupy kid night before last and the rain, I didn't get the run in yesterday. Took it easy today and felt pretty good. Left hamstring seems to be better but I am feeling the right I... read more

    Nothing felt more heavenly than walking into my air conditioned house after this run. Out the door by 5:20 and weather.com said 79 (it had just rained to so it was HUMID). So, if the run yesterday... read more

    So humid... this run was so hard. I know I went into it dehydrated so that certainly didn't help. Hamstring sore after mile two. Will definitely schedule a visit soon.

  7. RUN
    Rocket City W4D2 4 mi 00:42 10:32 pace

    Really dragging today. Raining so I took it to the TM which also didn't help. Started a new med so I think that may be impacting me. BUT the hamstring did feel better today.

    First five went well as did the last 7. Hamstring is still achy but better. Garmin 310 is acting wonky. The ANT device has had trouble finding it in the past but it is not finding it at all now.... read more

      YES!!! I just now had to re-start and re-pair all my devices and that seemed to help. That and just dumping that piece of crap Garmin Express. Nice long one Maria!!

      Well, if your hamstring aches no matter what shoes you wear it likely isn't the shoes. But when things ache for me I reach for the Hokas, but that's just me! I hope it eases up. Maybe time for a good massage?

      When I was training for my steeplechase, my hamstring started acting up and Todd did laser treatments on mine and that helped immensely. If you go see him, ask about those. That did the trick for me.
