Have to be careful that we are not ramping up too fast. The hills may be more strain on calves than a flat track.
I ran in the rain today too, makes you feel a bit more...tough?

Makes me think of Seattle and good friends - or at least that's what I tell myself. I wimped out today and timed my run for the one hour of sunshine between rainstorms, so all the tough points to you two!

I saw on your log that you've had shin splints for awhile. Do you have access to a physical therapist or sports med doc through school?

Yeah, they haven't been bothering me for a while, but I have always been conscious of them under the surface and thus have been doing my runs as offroad as possible. I am working at setting up another appointment with the university physios, though I haven't been too impressed with them in the past.

The rain was fun, although unexpected!

Yeah, I lucked out - dealt with mine while teaching at West Point, which has an exceptional PT and Sports Med section compared to most of the rest of the military. Good luck!
