4 miles redlobsterloop

calf was tweaking pretty hard around 2.5 miles and i was ready to walk it in but i tried changing up my foot stike and stride a little and it seemed to help. around 3.5 miles it actually started to loosen up a little which was very encouraging, i thought about going another mile but decided caution was a better choice. i'm glad i didn't go further because the calf is pretty sore right now. hopefully the run was just the right amount of therapy for the injury.

6 miles - wasatch/whiteside loops/wasatch

calf issue was present but totally runnable today. but i'm way out of shape for the moment, the first three miles were great then decomposed the last three. obviously the short easy runs are helping me heal faster than not doing anything.

10 miles - redlobster/rainbow/rite-aid/adamswood/wasatch

felt good through mile 7 then started slowing down - i attribute this slow down to several factors, including but not limited to: age, genetics, current fitness level, and diet. lol

temp ranged from a comfortable 70F to a warm 79F by the time i finished
