No milk in the fridge this morning, so hopped on the bike to get coffee (1 mile each way.) So nice out this morning that I turned it into a 7 mile ride!<br><br>
Going to try some road running tonight.
Fabulous 90 minute run through Valley Forge National Park. I took a little detour from my regular paved trail to check out the progress on Washington's HQ which they are redoing the whole area. They took away the water fountain there though <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> My run was really nice, upper 50's. It was all good despite accidentally pepper spraying myself prior to beginning the run <img alt="surprised.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/surprised.gif">
5 miles. Saw a half dozen coyotes just before entering the trail head this AM. I'm either really stupid or really brave because instead of scrapping my run, I didn't let them scare me off. I did run a bit faster than normal, though.<br><br>
Really though, they were definitely more afraid of me than I of them. But now I know that they are out there (which I already knew because I can hear them howling at night) and to keep my eyes and ears open (which I do anyway).
SGH - Today I kinda bailed on my first run too. I went out and felt great, couldn't feel the calves at all, then I felt sharp pains above my left knee and turned around 2 miles ahead of schedule. 2.4 mile run instead of the 6 I was hoping for. When am I gonna get better??...I'm hoping it's just the antibiotics that I'm on and in a week or 2 I'll be fully training again...<img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">
Arrojo, I hope your hammy gets better. I missed if you posted what happened.<br><br>
I'm hoping to run a reasonable amount this evening, depending on how the quad feels. I will most likely run slowly. I didn't bring my ice for the ride home! Dang.
