  1. RUN
    great 2.7 mi

    Nice little shake out run / pep talk with my left calf. I must have had Dumbledore's deluminator in my pocket because three street lights in a row turned off just as I ran under them. Spooky.

  2. walk
    good 2 mi

    For a variety of reasons I didn't get to my usual cross training activities today. But that's okay because I took the 13yo, who has been awfully sullen lately, out for an after school wal... read more

      I hope those two chatty miles made a difference. Tell her if she ever wants to get together at Sip for a book discussion, I can clear time in my schedule easily.

  3. RUN
    great 2.3 mi

    Short & sweet to start the day. Trying to be very careful with my mileage this week since I'm bumping up my long run quite a bit and want my calf to stay happy.

  4. walk
    good 4 mi

    My husband and kids have an unplanned day off today so I used part of my morning to keep him company on a nice long walk.

  5. RUN

    Felt great - had to make myself come home bc I know I need to carefully build back mileage.

    The weather is so nice and cool. My calf didn't nag me once. I got out the door early enough to run bf the kids went to school. It was a very good run.

      Luckily, as your runs get longer again, the weather will get cooler :) It was NASTY out there. And from now on, you should check my DM for any weather warnings before you head out :) But I AM glad that the calf felt fine.

    I beat the rain
    And felt no pain
    A stranger's high five & cheer
    Had me grinning from ear to ear
    And now the ice
    Feels twice as nice

  14. swim
    good 1400 yd

    I've missed the pool. That didn't make today's workout any easier though: 200 warm up; 400 swim; 300 pull; 200 kick; 100 sprint; 200 easy cool down.

      Maybe a little of both?? I am optimistic for you too, that the calf might just be playing games with your mind. It might want you to ice it anyway, just to be nice.

      This made me smile. There's an elderly man who walks in the mornings where I run, too. I always assumed he only walked a mile or so, but on Monday I saw him leaving this retirement community a good 3 miles from where I usually see him. 6 miles round trip for this guy. He's super friendly and always gives me a big, toothless smile. Makes my day whenever I see him. You never know!
