Felt terrible. 22MPH wind out of the west. Out and back, into the wind the first half. 6:39 and 6:45 for the first two miles. It felt slow but I must have overcompensated because of how it felt. Almost 20 miles for the week.

Beautiful day. I wanted to keep things controlled and slower the first two miles but didn’t. My calf felt pretty good but I am still trying to be careful. Between my last run and today I used a roller, which seemed to help loosen things up.

Not great. I’ve taken some time off to recover from a calf injury. I got 3/4 of a mile into my run and started to feel it all again. I walked and jogged back home. More time off is needed.

6:39 for the first two miles. Vertigo came back last week so I wasn’t sure how good this would feel. I tried to take it down and match the last mile. Probably too quick the first two after a few days off.

Good but hot. I had seven or eight second positive splits for each mile. Sometime after the first half mile I started to catch up with a doe and a fawn along the trail. I started out with a 100 for a body battery, I was well rested this morning. Set ups and push-ups.
