  1. RUN
    alright Lake accotink loop 6.86 mi 01:02 08:59 pace

    Dusted off the Hokas and shuffled around the lake. My hamstring is still tight but it was better today. Off to the physio this afternoon. Fingers crossed for a positive outcome!

  2. Just checking in. I'm taking more days off until this hamstring really is better. But I got in a four hour motorcycle ride with my daughter, so that was nice!

  3. RUN
    alright Lake accotink loop 6.86 mi 01:04 09:23 pace

    It's good to be out again. My calves are much improved but my right hamstring is still grabby. But I went really easy and seem to be coming along. Off to the ice bath :-(

      Are you sure a hot tub wouldn't be more fun?

      Well, quite honestly, that's hard without a quick little eval. Are you consistent with foam rolling? If you're going to brush your teeth, you should also "brush your body." Haha.... but for real. Do you have a desk job? A lot of times tight hamstrings are actually caused by tight hip flexors from sitting (so your illlium gets pulled forward and your hamstring gets all lengthened) and then running hard.
      Stretch your hip flexors. Do not over stretch your hamstrings

      Stretching a strain can prevent it from healing (that would be like stretching a sprained ankle over and over into the sprained position).. Foam roller can be ok though.

  5. RUN
    tired Recovery run 0.15 mi 00:03:00 20:00 pace

    I mapped this run so you guys could admire the terrain I traversed. I am going to need several days to heal up from that race. Still, I am counting this as a run :-)

    At the finish. Note the obvious lack of wheels. And I look more and more like Preston B. every day. You would think we are related :-)

    A shot from the Parks Half Marathon yesterday. Before the wheels came off. I will need to remember to shave before the next race.

      Did you find the photos on line, Elizabeth? I'll bet you are in there. Go to the MCRRC web site and on the home page, scroll to the bottom. Click on the PHOTOS button. You have to search through a lot of shots, but they are free to download and the photographers did a good job.

  8. RUN
    2 mi

    Don't want to deny myself the miles in warming up and warming down, though the warm down was really just a very slow walk to the metro. My legs is hammered.

    Parks half marathon 13.01 mi 01:26 06:37 pace

    After at really shaky week of running (and not), I feel really happy with this effort. The course is a net downhill but it is pretty much up or down all the way. I felt good through about nine mile... read more

    good Cross County Trail to Little ... 12.24 mi 01:45 08:35 pace

    It was a nice day; a bit warmer. I do wish my feet would start improving and stop burning. I'm not going to stop running so they should just quit wining and get with the program.

  14. RUN
    good Cross County Trail to Little ... 12.24 mi 01:48 08:49 pace

    Still a few aches, but it was a nice, easy jog on a lovely morning. Everyone and their dog is out today. Have a nice Labor Day!
