My Butt Hurts

Yesterday I took the day away from running because of a new sore calf. No big deal, just one of those things I wanted to nip right away, since the day called for an easy five miler. Instead I woke up and did a ball routine and leg workout that included two sets of one legged squats on the stairs. I did another set at work and I paid the price this morning.

Off to Hartley trails this morning and with the new dusting of snow we received I could tell there was one runner ahead of me on the trails. That one runner would prove to be Chris, as our paths crossed up on the guard rail loop. With any little climb I could feel yesterday's leg workout. My legs felt a bit tired, the kind of tired from increasing your mileage and days of workouts in a two week period. As the day went on, things felt pretty good and all should be on for the morning recovery run.

It should be interesting to see what kind of workouts I can muster up this weekend, as our van will be heading my parents in Michigan where the snowbanks are like small mountains. Just ask Patrick. Should be fun.

Totals: 1:08:56     8.3 miles   (8:21 pace)

Bring the snowshoes fella. Katie and I have yet to be down that way since moving here. Next time your up (and there is 30 feet of snow) I could head down there and meet up with you for a run.

That's the most likely workout out the backdoor. My parents live on 40+ acres of wooded land and lots of snowshoe trails.
