8 AM

Running (Easy distance) 33:00 [3] 3.0 mi (11:00 / mi)
(injured) shoes: Kayano 20 Blue

Lake Ranch Reservoir. 80 degrees at sunrise, mid-80's by the time we got there. That plus a light breakfast (so I wouldn't have to wait long to digest) already made me a bit uncomfortable, but I persevered. Legs still feel very unlively, so kept the pace very modest, tried to keep my strides short to protect my heel. Heel didn't feel too bad, definitely was able to not limp.

Would have been happy to do two miles, but managed to do three without a problem. GPS track continues as we walked to the finish (with some jogging) but I'll list those stats separately as a cool down.

A bit surprised that I feel so out of shape after only two months (and it's not like I haven't been exercising at all), but maybe that's what it's like at this age.

[Easy distance]

Walking warm up/down 20:00 [2] 1.0 mi (20:00 / mi)
shoes: Kayano 20 Blue

Walk (with a little jogging) back to the start with L.

Stretching 2:30:00 [2]

The usual weekly accumulation of morning exercises: stretching, strength and balance. While at the Oregon Eclipse Camp, did most of the stretching exercises, but no much else.

1 PM

Strength exercises 20:00 [4]

JCCLG. Just back last night from the Oregon eclipse trip. Really feeling the lack of sleep.

Do sets of everything, but with diminished reps and weights.

Actually preceded this with 15 mins of exercises I didn't get to do this morning.

[Strength exericses]

Running (Eas distance minus) 11:45 [3] 1.2 mi (9:48 / mi)
(injured) shoes: Kayano 20 Blue

JCCLG. After my strength workout, did 6 laps around the soccer fields. It was hot, and legs were really dragging. On Dec 21, 2016, convinced myself that this field was 5 laps to a mile, but I felt so slow today, that's hard to believe.

Splits are for two laps at a time: 405, 354, 345,

7 AM

Walking 45:00 [2] 2.5 mi (18:00 / mi)
shoes: Kayano 20 Blue

Mt Shasta Resort. Included 3:45 of jogging. Lovely trail, lovely morning. Jogging was not easy.

Arrived here last night after leaving the Oregon Eclipse Camp.

(rest day)

Packed up camp, and spend most of the day driving from Unity to Mt Shasta, arriving at 8 after leaving at 10am.

7 AM

Running (Easy distance) 7:00 [3] 0.6 mi (11:40 / mi)
shoes: Kayano 20 Blue

Oregon Eclipse Camp, Unity, OR. Tried to catch the window between in being too cold and too hot. Started off with lots of clothes on, stripped down as I ran. Heel was a bit stiff, but better than a few days ago. However, legs felt like I hadn't run in years and after 7 minutes I'd had enough. I guess sleeping poorly and being cold all night will do that.

(rest day)

Another full day at the Eclipse Camp. Realized that my sore heel might be due to the still heel pad I was using, so switched to my usual running heel cups, and that made a world of difference.
