    good Easy mill day 4 mi 00:34 08:36 pace

    Light day on a soft surface felt great. Loosened the legs right up. Far too warm in the gym for my liking, however.

      I haven't. I thought about it Monday morning but decided sleep was more important. My legs feel pretty good. Calves are a little tight from running in the Newtons, but overall not too bad.

      Hi Tricky! My shin feels pretty good. I still feel the occasional twinge so probably won't run tomorrow, which is supposed to be long run day. I might ride again and try a run early next week.

      Your cross training approach will get back to running soon -- again wise choice cyling and yoga for the day instead of a run.
