First week down (well actually 8 days) but I'm digressing early in this post. Actually pretty happy with getting out there 5 times between the trails and roads. The shin has been a little tight during runs, but mostly on those days when I haven't truly stretched it out as much as I should. You would think at my age I would have learned more patience, but..... not really. My ankle (that I had reconstructed using my hip bones many many many years ago) has been a tad sore. But that happens in the beginning of getting back to running. But the same stretches for my shin, also help the ankle.
Hello Stupid (yeah I'm talking to myself here) do you notice any trends here? Old dogs and new tricks I guess.
My RoadID and my new NB Minimus are supposed to be delivered today, so I am very excited about that. The Minimus are the trail version, so with my luck it will probably snow 3 ft, but looking at the weather forecast I think I'll dodge that bullet for a bit. Going to try to keep the same work schedule of getting in super early so I can hit the trails after work. The days are getting longer, but slowly. Still need to master the art of running trails at night.
Going to take today as a rest day, after 3 in a row. To steal Terry Francona's phrase (or maybe it was Jimy Williams - well one of the Red Sox Manager's), it's a marathon not a sprint. Been looking at race calendar's and websites to see which 50k I'm going to do this year. Very anxious and excited. Thinking I can pull that off by May and who knows maybe do the Vermont 50, in the 50 mile catagory.
Happy 10th Birthday to my boy, Jack.
Thanks to EJ, from URG, for her comments the other day. Sometimes, we all need a little reminder and kick in the back-side.
Well that's it for now. Safe running for you all.
Be Well ~ Sank
