Running 32:00 [3] 3.5 mi (9:09 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 21

Running with Presto! I had to work today, so I didn't get a chance to get out until the evening. Presto was a little draggy both because of the heat and because he was not excited about leaving a still sick Sam back home. Running felt pretty decent tonight, and it was definitely good to get outside!

Strength 5:00 [3]

Normal abs.

Stretching 10:00 [3]

Normal stretching. My leg bruise has healed enough to foam roll again. Yay!

Running 32:00 [3] 3.5 mi (9:09 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 21

Running with Presto after lab! I'm settling back into this timezone and was feeling awake enough for a run this evening. My knee is still super sore to the touch, but didn't hurt on stairs or on the bike today, so I decided to give running a shot tonight. It felt fine! There was a gorgeous sunset over Mt. Tam tonight, which was really nice.

Strength 5:00 [3]

Normal abs. I can tell I haven't done these in a bit.

Stretching 10:00 [3]

Normal stretching. Still no foam rolling or my normal hip flexor stretch because of all the bruises. I tried to do a standing hip flexor stretch, but I don't really get much of a stretch that way, so it wasn't all that useful. My right ankle is currently a bit sore, I think because there are so many chigger bites on it that it was kind of swollen while I was running. NC has many nice things going for it (green, living plants in summer!), but chiggers aren't one of them.

Running 32:47 [3] 3.5 mi (9:22 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 21

Running with Presto before lab! I got home quite late last night, but jet lag dictated that I wake up before my alarm this morning. My knee is still sore to the touch, but doesn’t hurt while walking anymore, so I decided to give running a shot. It occasionally hurt a little bit, but was generally fine, which is good. Presto seemed a bit reluctant to leave a very sick Sam. Presto seems to think that Sam requires a dog sitting on him at all times, which is pretty cute and endearing. Once we were outside, he seemed happy to be running for the first time since I left, though. I was very happy to be running with the temperature in the 50s instead of the 80s, so it was all good!

Stretching 10:00 [3]

I had to run off to take Presto to the vet for vaccinations, and then I had to, you know, go to work, so I didn't get to stretch until after work. Non-ideal, but such is life. The knee started feeling a bit iffy during the day. It doesn't like going down stairs (and stairs are a big part of my work life, since everything is on a different floor), and it doesn't love riding a bike, especially in the uphill direction. I still can't do foam rolling or my normal hip flexor stretch because of my assortment of bruises. It does seem like everything is bruise-related, though, so I'm hopeful that this will all be fairly short term.

ARDF (80m) 1:25:29 [3] *** 8.5 km (10:03 / km)
5c shoes: Brooks Running 20

US 80m ARDF Champs at Umstead Park! 1st woman, 3rd overall! I took the transmitters in the wrong order, but the order I went in was nearly as good because of the trail network. I started out running north and heard 3 in that direction, so I decided to go to 3 first. On my way, I tripped over a rock and fell hard into a rock pile, smashing my knee straight into a rock. I kind of lay there on the ground for a little bit, trying to convince myself to get up, and then had to mess around getting my receiver tuned back to the correct frequency. I finally started running again in time to just miss getting to 3 on cycle, but didn't realize how close I was to the transmitter. I then ran past it during the next 5 minutes, turned around, and then managed to run past it again during the next 5 minutes. I finally managed to find it on the cycle after that. I was vaguely annoyed with myself, but was glad to finally find it. I headed over to the trail to go south to 1, ran down and found it pretty easily. I headed up to 4 next, which was another long trail run, which went smoothly. I was reminded of how hot it was though, as I was running along the trail in my long pants while everyone around me was in running shorts. Ugh. I thought 5 was one ridge closer to the finish than it actually was, so I ran over to that ridge, realized I was on the wrong ridge, and then had to go down and up a pretty steep (for NC) reentrant to get to the correct ridge. The run into the finish was a nice run through the woods and along the river. I was annoyed with myself about the stupidity at number 5, and I was really starting to feel the heat and humidity, but it's always nice to run through Umstead. Super fun weekend of ARDF!

Stretching 10:00 [3]

Normal stretching back home without any foam rolling and limited hip flexor stretches. My knee is definitely sore and when combined with my ginormous IT band bruise, my right leg is feeling pretty beat up. I iced it quite a bit today, and hopefully it will be fine after a day or two.
