tues 6 probably couldnt have run without advil and compression sleeve. the good news is that it didnt get worse during the run, and it feels ok now. i cant get too excited yet, though. if i wake up and it feels good then ill know i can start getting after it again.
weds 7 calf felt about the same as yesterday, so it was good enough. a lot of long, steep climbs that really irritated it. the flats and downs were fine. probly gonna need advil for a while. ive taken more of it in the last two days than i did all summer but whatever. i dont care. it makes it so i can run.
thurs 8 in the dark. calf ok. bowling was good. i got 5 strikes in a row, rolled a 211, and started to climb out of the hole. going in i was down by 212. now its down to 122. my other games werent very good. i probably needed to make up more ground since naj had a hard time getting used to his new shoes. ill most likely have the same problem next week when my shoes come in. hopefully i wont give back what i made up tonight.
fri 13 ran the railbed 9.5 really hard (60:28). even with two weeks of 20 miles and an injury, i was almost 3 minutes faster than when i did the same run 3 weeks ago. i probably would have been faster if i had run smarter. i was out way too fast the first 2 miles. this turned the last 2 miles into a big time struggle. i was on fumes at that point and had a hard time running in a straight line. i totally staggered to the finish. this was not even close to my best time for this run, but considering the last few weeks and all the long runs with no workouts, im happy with the time and the effort.
sun 7 felt ok after feeling really sore yesterday.
