Lunch- 6 running miles- first run since last Wed. Achilles was still a bit tender and noticeable, but not painful. And no pain post-run. I'll keep doing short, flat runs (i.e. no Paris Mtn, unfortunately) as long as my Achilles permits till next week. After all, this is already my taper, and I was only planning to run 50 miles this week.
PM- 6 more at dusk on the .68-mile, rubber GE track, with fireflies lighting my way. The track is very close to my apartment, soft, and flat, which my legs appreciate.
Random notes- my Timex Ironman watch has been randomly resetting itself, so I ordered a new one. It arrived today- I think it is my 4th or 5th Ironman in 16+ years. Apparently I'm pretty skinny right now, since I had to tighten it to the smallest hole for it to fit.
My out-of-shape resting heart rate is ~50. My in-shape is 41-43. I measured it yesterday at 38, and that was during the afternoon rather than immediately after waking up. Lowest ever. I guess I'm in good shape, plus getting older.
