Legs feeling really good when I got up this morning. Definitely tired, but not sore at all. Icing the knee and a good long hot bath last night seemed to help. Tempted to go for a short run later to stretch the legs if they're still feeling good.


Went for some canoeing and a bit of swimming. Felt really good to be working out the body in other ways. Swimming felt especially good on the legs. Knee feeling much better by the end of the day.

Blister's getting worse than I realized and legs are sore as fuck. Otherwise it just feels great to be exhausted. Hopefully can sneak in a small run today to stretch out the legs.

Road Run 53:52 [2] 6.44 mi (8:22 / mi) +73m 8:05 / mi

Evening run hoping to stretch out the legs. Felt really bad starting out, and even as legs loosened out a bit midway through, just felt too exhausted to really enjoy it. Didn't feel recovered at all from yesterday's monster run.

Outside of left knee still feeling really tight, although it was fine while running. A bit tight in left hamstring, probably from compensating a bit from tightness in left knee. Thinking tomorrow will be best served as a rest day. The legs aren't ready for this steady training yet.

Good night's sleep. Feeling some tightness on the outside side of my left knee when I walk.


Thinking I'll try this route home from work on Monday: and then maybe this shorter one on the way in Tuesday morning:

Trail Run 1:57:00 [2]

Feeling pretty good for the first hour, but got extremely lost trying to get around the never-ending lakes and ended up doubling down on distance. Highlander tired at the end. Not ready for this kind of distance yet. Didn't wear the gps cuz it was raining. No chance at measuring this on gmap-pedometer with all the looping in and out with the lakes and no view of the trails from the satellite.

Trail Run 15:00 [1]

Just brief warmup jog before long run.

Road Run 1:19:11 [3] 9.82 mi (8:04 / mi) +130m 7:45 / mi

Another beautiful evening run. Really felt it in the quads at the end. Felt a bit of tightness in the left foot arch, so I'll have to keep an eye on that.

No time for running. Looks like Wednesday will be a day off for the foreseeable future.

Tuesday Aug 25, 2009 #

Road Run 58:35 [3] 7.14 mi (8:12 / mi) +90m 7:54 / mi

Nice easy evening run. Felt pretty good most of the way, but fell off pretty hard toward the end. Getting a couple blisters on the right foot.

Monday Aug 24, 2009 #

Treadmill warm up/down 15:00 [1] 1.52 mi (9:54 / mi)

Nice easy warmup jog on the treadmill.

Road Run 52:18 [2] 6.44 mi (8:07 / mi) +73m 7:51 / mi

Nice easy evening road run. Felt really great.
