4 mile recovery run

I stayed close to the house today to test my achilles and see how I felt. I felt ok and only had time for a half hour but by the end of that both calves were tight. I felt some right lower achilles tightness and some left mid calf tightness. I am glad I have 10 days to get my legs loosened up. It may take that long. There will only be easy running between now and then.

208 entrants for the Leona Divide 50 miler.
24 spots available.

Here is a link to my pictures from the Charlottesville 10 miler.

I forgot to report that last week I surpassed 10,000 blog visitors! At least a thousand of those are me but thanks to everyone else that has visited, read, and commented on my blog.

Cool video from Coach Jay Johnson from a track workout in Boulder, CO.

Ever seen a hamstring pull during a race? How about three out of six teams pulling up in the 4x400m at the World Indoor Championships? Three medals, two DNFs and one DQ! Watch the video here. This video was shown at the conference I attended last weekend before a presentation on acute hamstring pulls.

Interesting video.... I don't think I have ever watched indoor track....
10,000 visitors! You are almost 3000 ahead of me....

Hopefully all of issues that you are having with your legs feel better with rest and easy maintenance runs.

Enjoyed the 4x400m race. I wonder if the track surface may have had something to do with the hamstring pulls. I have never seen anything like that!
