easy 8 / campus loops. significant run 9 days after the little achilles snafu - felt really good and considered running a couple more but there was a little weakness creeping up in the injury zone, i'm really pleased that things are on the right track so quickly. i'm grateful for the wisdom and experience shared on fast running blog which provides an excellent road map for all things running related.

gentle progression splits starting with 9:20 and finishing up the last mile @ 8:26.

4 really slow miles from work / easy street. so i get the achilles strain that popped up a couple of weeks ago under control and now, yesterday, my left hamstring developed a sharp pain. funny stuff. anyway, i took it real slow today and it felt pretty good. that's two niggles in places i've not had pain before in two weeks...i'm falling apart! i've never been fast but i've always been strong. i've always been able to count on my legs getting me through whatever mileage i set my mind to. i hope this isn't signaling the end of an era for me. my mileage has been low the past few months and i haven't done any speedwork so i don't know what's going on.

11 miles / easy - from work/ northeastern territory. got chased by a couple of dogs for about a block until some kid in a honda pulled up to me and said he didn't know whose dogs they were but he'd run over them for me and he proceeded to turn right in front of the lead dog. he didn't hit them but it stopped them, i gave him a thankful wave and carried on. i love dogs. some dog owners are very irresponsible.
