  1. So February is rehab month, and perhaps March, too. I probably strained the head of my gastrocnemius. I saw a Physical Therapist today which was really interesting, because he showed me some amazin... read more

  2. Still pretty sick, feverish, headache, body aches, phlegmy. I guess I can forget going for the TTR record on Sunday, not even sure if I'll be able to run it. The upshot is forced rest for my l... read more

  3. feel like crap-ola. ugh, head cold! It's a man cold!

  4. Feeling better (leg), worse (head cold), another day off, maybe easy 4 tomorrow morning. Dog needs it, I need it, would make the works a better place :-)

      Was looking for your headlamp this morning on the ridge, as I was out a little earlier- didn't see it. nice that the head cold came at a time when your body needed rest anyway.

      yeah, felt like double crap this morning with the sore throat and headache coupled with the I-haven't-run-yet zombiness. At least I have an excuse! And this thing knocked my 4-year old out for three days, but I think I'll kick it today.

  5. Ugh, injury? Feels like a strained muscle on outside of left shin, proximal tibealis anterior? I kicked a few rocks hard with the left foot trailing yesterday, maybe that was it... RICE day

    Couldn't get Daisy (dog) to come pose with me for this thing. City glow reflected off the clouds made a cool backdrop for a silhouette shot.

    good Agua Caliente in the wind 7.41 mi 01:21 10:51 pace

    A winter storm is here. Super windy, easy miles with Daisy. Going up was chilly but somehow uplifting because the wind was buffeting my back. I kept expecting sleet to start pelting my back but the... read more

    good 14.73 mi 02:43 11:04 pace

    Early morning climbing before kids' soccer. Lost track of time a little bit taking photos, unexpected breaks, tried to fly down but it's a rough descent in the last couple miles. No falls... read more

    good Blackett's from Bear Canyon TH 6.59 mi 01:15 11:24 pace

    I felt good, walked a bit (as always) on this 2000 foot climb (over 2 miles), fought a dying headlamp, had to wait for a skunk to clear the trail, and felt strong motoring up the steeps in the seco... read more

    alright Butternut OnB 5.33 mi 00:54 10:03 pace

    Just wanted to get some easy miles in with Daisy so I went up a hill that Randy Sooter named "Butternut Squash Soup" on strava. I don't think it has anything to do with soup but it&#... read more

    A bit tired after yesterday, but no problems. Dog came with me and we did some strides at the end. They felt great--nice and smooth on the road. Forgot the headlamp but the moon was bright! Spent a... read more

    good Douglas Springs 13.03 mi 01:53 08:40 pace

    Slept in this morning after staying up late reading the old TTR newsletters. Still shocked at the crazy times they were running on the trails around here! My intended workout today was 2-3 minute h... read more

      very impressed. I think I'm ~1:30 to DougSprings. Last year I did the TV loop. Jumped over a log right at TV Peak- and came down into some dry manzanita, with a stick through my left shin. Pulled the stick out but a piece broke inside. Ran down in pain to Javalina, where I got a ride to my car at DougSprings... and off to urgent care I went for a small operation to remove the stick. Then went skiing the next day with about 8 ibuprofen in me. ugh

    Up and down the switchbacks on the south Milagrosa trail.

    good 3.93 mi 00:56 14:08 pace

    A bit tired after yesterday. Dinked around with Daisy and camera in the creek, took a nice tumble on the single track (minor hip scratch).

      trail running = falls. generally when you least expect it.

      Agreed. Flat sandy coming down the ridge... very benign. Wanted to roll out of it but I didn't execute--just slid on my side (thanks, gloves!). Forgot about it until I got in the shower. There was that Yow! moment when I felt the water hit it.
