Saturday Oct 8 #

Run 36:52 [3] 3.79 mi (9:44 / mi) +369ft 8:54 / mi

Easy from the house, through the county campground and then out and back on Toll Gate. Walked 3 to start, then jog 5, walk 1.

HR still really high; legs probably really fresh after all the rest?

Calf/ITB still a bit niggly. Rolling and stretching seem to help, but I think it needs more rest. Taking the next 48 hours off the feet. Might get back on the bike just to keep moving.

Friday Oct 7 #

Run 35:37 [3] 3.38 mi (10:32 / mi) +315ft 9:41 / mi

Easy from the house, through the county campground and then out and back on Toll Gate. First run in the Hoka Challenger 2's. Upsized a 1/2 size and it feels like the right shoes. Enough room in the to box, light, and a noticeable energy return. I like.

Bad news, the left leg/ calf isn't ready. Feels like my old cuboidal sprain is acting up. It's not re-sprained, but it's tight in that spot and then the calf starts burning; probably compensating for the reduced mobility.

Staying off the feet, massaging the foot, rolling and stretching everywhere else.

Huge aerobic fitness right now. 7:4X's like NBD. WOW.

Thursday Oct 6 #

Run 32:43 [3] 3.31 mi (9:53 / mi) +175ft 9:25 / mi

Easy peasy run on the 'mill the last 30 minutes of work.

Walked 2 to start @ 18:10, then 10 @ 8:41. Repeat until 30 minutes, auto cool down 2:00 @ 18:10.

Legs feel OK. Last dose of antibiotics this AM, hope the fatigue starts clearing up. HR quite a bit higher than expected. Past the 3 week aerobic window? Dehydrated? Late in the day? Antibiotics? Race fatigue?

Holly pulled out of Chimera and probably won't be doing it next year, so we have an entry. I might charge it; I need redemption from Cuyamaca. Plus those trails were my backyard for how many years...
