So join me for a drink boys
Tomorrow I’m off to Flagstaff, AZ with Eric Gillis and I can’t wait to get back there. It really is a great training environment and there should be a lot less snow than here even though the Flagstaff forecast for tomorrow is calling for snow. The plan is to do a run tomorrow in Sedona where it is warmer before finishing up the rest of the drive to Flag.
This week was a little tough for me, but in the big scheme it was not really that bad. After the race last Saturday I felt good on my cool down and the next day did a couple of runs and felt pretty good. When I went to go running on Monday I didn’t make it a couple of minutes before my foot started hurting. I pressed through a little more and called it quits after 25 minutes (planning on 100 minutes). On Tuesday I cross-trained on the bike and in the pool and then I went to see Brenda at Speed River Physio and she was able to get my cuboid back in place. I tested it out Wednesday and it was pretty good for most of my run. On Thursday it was back to the bike and pool and another trip to Speed River Physio and to Marcel Meresz (RMT). On Friday I was able to get in a workout with all the guys and the foot felt pretty good.
Today I did a long run with the guys and, special guests, Adrian Lambert and the DelMonte brothers on Crawley Rd. Crawley is an out and back dirt road that is a haven for me in the winter months, soft surface, very little traffic and the right amount of rolling hills. The run starts (and ends) at the Sleeman Brewery and after our two hour run we started talking about how it would be nice to have a beer in the parking lot on such a sunny day. Cal got up and went right into the brewery store and brought out some Sleeman Original Draught. I’m not usually one to have a beer right after a run, but today it really hit the spot. Thanks again Cal.
