breaks, still sore every step
R: AM walked 5.11 miles; PM biked 8 miles. NO RUNNING!
F: 6.2mi (9:44), walked about 1/3 the first mile and progressively
less each mile, ran last 1.2 w/o walking. Achilles 94% better.
Sa: 8mi (8:15), much better, like 99%
Su: 22mi (7:35) w/club friends, so far so good
total: 62.2 miles running, 5.11 miles walking, 8 miles bike
Big deal this week was the achilles/soleus, as I mentioned a few days ago. Taking it easy didn't cure it, and taking it even easier didn't either. I finally decided I could afford to take a couple days off running, and luckily it healed after only one day off. The pace of today's 22 was probably due to a combination of good company, good weather, and a relatively light week, but my leg gave nary a peep, so I'm happy.
