No run today. It’s pouring rain and I have my big stage to get ready for.
8.4 miles today. Drove to Constitution Beach and just decided to run to Deer Island and back. I didn’t do a full loop around the island (had to be at work later), instead did the shorter, hillier section. I think I want to start and place the longer runs in the middle of the week instead of the end and make them a more natural part of training rather than an event to get ready for.
No run today. Legs feel surprisingly good, but I need to rest.
6.22 miles today. Decided to go out and give the trails another try, this time for a much longer, more intense run. Amazingly fun run through some fairly technical parts of the Fells. I hit a serious wall around 6 miles (I was aiming for 8), but feel great about this run nonetheless.
No run today. Scheduled day off.
5.58 miles today. I’ve been a bit obsessed with watching crazy long trail race videos on youtube (like this one about a 50K race in Oregon), and have been itching to get back onto the trails myself. However, previous runs in the Skechers have shown me that while they are a great road shoe, they’re terrible on trails. I still had a good chunk of money left on a gift certificate that Melissa got for Running Warehouse, and spent that a pair of Salomon trail shoes, the Salomon Sense Pro. Since I’ve gotten them I’ve been itching to try them out.
I didn’t have a ton of time to run, but I went out in the Fells for about an hour and just ran around. The shoes did really well, and while I think they’re just a bit too stiff for road running, on softer trails they were perfect. I’m looking forward to trying them out on a much longer trail run.
No run today. Did a close to open shift from Monday until today, and am just too tired.
No run today. Traveling back home, and then work.
No run, as we’re traveling to the Cape to see friends. Legs feel much better.
No run. However, my legs do feel better today.
No run. I think I’m just going to take it easy and not worry about running for now. I need to listen to my body, and right now it’s telling me that it needs some rest to recover.
No run today. Achilles is still too sore.
No run today. Right Achilles was incredibly tight and sore this morning. I need to be careful.
No run today. We took a day trip and went to the Barnstable County Fair. Good times were had by all.
No run today. I was going to, but some stupid shit at work ended up getting in the way.
