    injured Foiled Run 2.44 mi 00:36 14:50 pace

    Headed out on time in decent weather for a run, but only made it a tenth of a mile or so. Tried to start again several times, but the pain from my muscle strain seemed to warn against it. I figur... read more

      Sometimes the most important thing for your running is not running. Patiently allow it to heal and you'll be fine. 😁

    great Yoga Inferno L. 2 00:35

    Struggling with a muscle pull (I think from the seven miles of cc skiing a couple of weeks ago). Had to take it easy on a few moves. Felt hard this morning, but good.

    great Rocky Bovine Way 5.02 mi 00:49 09:47 pace

    In spite of the cold and dark, this was a great run. It felt relatively effortless and very short (after Friday's long run). Ran into the sunrise and returned home with the promise of a full... read more

    First run over 10 miles in ages. I took it pretty slow, but felt good throughout--even on the hills. Dogs on the loose at mile 5 were a little scary, but it was otherwise uneventful. Listening t... read more

      Ouch on the bruise!!!! Hope you heal well soon. I have done a tablespoon of honey, shake of salt, and a dab of molasses. Enjoyed that, but haven't ever totally figured out fueling midrun. May do half a tablespoon if I go those distances again. Love the lemon juice idea.

    With the time change, it's dark again, so I struggle with leaving my little rural neighborhood. The country roads are so full of potholes that I'm afraid I'll sprain an ankle. So, ... read more

    I was planning for more miles, but fell back asleep. I wonder if I counts that I was dreaming that I was putting on my running clothes.... Anyway, finally made it out into the dark, dark world. ... read more

      Whoa!!!!!!!!!! You stunned me with this one. You know your mileage increases should be gradual (no more than 10% weekly). We don't want you lightheaded, my friend.

      I think I'm good on the mileage increase, but I know I should have fueled better. I'm trying to avoid sugar, so that doesn't leave a lot of great fueling choices. All I had before the run was a half banana and I didn't fuel at all during the run besides water.
