    good Water Still Flowing 9.3 mi 01:12 07:45 pace

    Felt good today- not sure why. It seemed a bit cooler out, put on my faster running shoes (Mizuno Elixers), and went out a bit harder. No real plan, but slowly picked up the pace until I was doin... read more

    Good rain last night. Lots of sand and dirt across the roads where the arroyos were running. 74 with near 100% humidity brought out the towering swarms of mating flying ants. The dragon flies we... read more

      100% humidity? Yeah, I'd say that's all part of it.

      Even with the higher HR and sluggish legs, excellent run in that humidity. Sounds tricky with the bug life around you though.

      62 this week! Impressive. Whats the most you've done in a week. 45 is mine, done it a few times. I can't see myself doing much more than that. What were you shooting for? Awesome run today.

      @BenK I've gotten up to 73-75mi/wk a few times, but never sustained that. Usually got injured a week or two later, but I've got a lot more base these days.

      Excellent run Morey. Only a little slower. Given others said they were a bit slower too, it doesn't seem like an issue. Good work. Sorry the series is over. You seem to really enjoy these runs/races.

      @Ann- yeah, I was worried as well. it's sore, perhaps from all the deep work I'm doing on it, but didn't feel tight. So, I figure, it's worth a test. Granted, I could take the next 3 months off an let it heal, but as long as it feels good enough, I'm for keeping it moving. It's not full blown PF... yet, so keeping it warm, flexible, moving, massaged- is my current treatment. along with stretching calves/achilles and feet- and deep grinding on it.
