so no goals for the forseeable future. i&#39;m going to take at least a full week off - i can walk fine and i&#39;m hoping the daily walks with Annie will serve as a form of rehab.</p> Fri, 02 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, May 31, 2017 http://JD.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-31-2017.html <p>all i needed was a 4 mile run today to meet my goal of 130 miles for the month of May and yesterday at the end of my run i developed an injury that has kept me from making that goal. i tried this morning,&nbsp; i went out a half mile and walked back. the injury feels much better this morning than it did all of yesterday but my gait while running was all gimpy and i could tell that even four miles was going to fatigue everything and possibly make the injury worse. not worth it to make an arbitrary goal especially since i&#39;m not even training for anything just setting these little goals so that i have something to work towards.</p> <p>so other than a dissapointing end to the month things went pretty well. i met two of the three goals in that i ran at least 21 days (i ran 22) and ran at least one 10 miler (i ran two). i fell short of the 130 miles for the month with 126 miles total.</p> <p>setting goals for june but i&#39;m scaling it back slightly from the plan i had in my head up until the injury yesterday because i may need to take more days off and/or keep the mileage low until i know i&#39;m clear.</p> <p>goals for june:</p> <p>- run at least 23 days</p> <p>- run at least 160 miles</p> <p>- run at least one 13 miler</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Wed, 31 May 2017 06:00:00 Tue, May 30, 2017 http://JD.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-30-2017.html <p>4 miles - adamswood loop.</p> <p>sharp pain in lower left calf had me walking a few steps in the last half mile today.</p> <p>sun, mid 60&#39;s</p> <p><small>WT 28 miles</small></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Tue, 30 May 2017 06:00:00 Mon, May 29, 2017 http://JD.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-29-2017.html <p>6 miles - redlobster/baptist/crestview/wasatch</p> <p>sun, upper 60&#39;s (i started the run a couple of hours later than usual)</p> <p><small>WT 28 miles</small></p> Mon, 29 May 2017 06:00:00 Sat, May 27, 2017 http://JD.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-27-2017.html <p>8 miles - redlobster/baptist/crestview/wasatch</p> <p>sun, low 50&#39;s</p> <p><small>WT 29 miles</small></p> Sat, 27 May 2017 06:00:00 Fri, May 26, 2017 http://JD.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-26-2017.html <p>6 miles - redlobster/baptist/wasatch</p> <p>overcast, low 50&#39;s, winds out of the north</p> <p><small>WT 31 miles</small></p> Fri, 26 May 2017 06:00:00 Wed, May 24, 2017 http://JD.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-24-2017.html <p>4 miles - redlobster/baptist/wasatch</p> <p>sun, mid 60&#39;s</p> <p><small>WT 37 miles</small></p> Wed, 24 May 2017 06:00:00 Tue, May 23, 2017 http://JD.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-23-2017.html <p>4 miles - redlobster/baptist</p> <p>sun, low 60&#39;s</p> <p><small>WT 33 miles</small></p> Tue, 23 May 2017 06:00:00 Mon, May 22, 2017 http://JD.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-22-2017.html <p>7 miles - redlobster/baptist/wasatch</p> <p>5 x 30 sec hill reps on golden</p> <p>sun, mid 50&#39;s</p> <p><small>WT 33 miles</small></p> Mon, 22 May 2017 06:00:00
