Personal:

I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

AM- 12 while watching football recaps

Lunch- 7 running.  Left Achilles was absolutely killing me by the end.  Hmm.  Added a bit of xt.

AM- Tried to run.  Made it 2 minutes.  Not sure what is up with my ankle/foot- sprained ankle?  Sprained foot?  Tendonitis?  Strain?  Strong pain that seems to move around and come and go.  Weird and frustrating.  Ended up doing some crosstraining.

Lunch 9 miles. As bad as my foot hurt yesterday, it was much better today. Ran 8 miles pain free, then started twinning the last mile so I stopped.

PM- Foot hurt quite a bit during the day, but decided to run anyways.  Felt good enough to run a few miles, then do some arc trainer.  I probably shouldn't, but I'm going for a long trail run tomorrow.

PM- Took Jason for his first-ever run at DuPont after work. Great place for running. I was really worried about my foot. It was fine for the first two hours but then my Achilles rapidly went downhill such that I cut the run short and was walking and limping by the end. At least I got some time on my feet. Got home at 11 pm. 17 miles with 1900 climbing in 3 hrs.

I'm signed up for a trail 6k race in the morning but I doubt I run it.

Slept in till 8 am (latest in a long time) while wearing my beloved Strassburg sock (hate the feel but love the results).  Leg felt better but I decided to rest.  My long distance endurance is still there, I just need to get healthy.  I'll admit I've been about 50 miles below my planned mileage for each of the past 2 weeks, but not much I can do about that now.  This is showing me how hard I pushed at TNF win and how close my body is to breakdown.
