Took my son to gym again, and this time ran hill repeats - there is a perfect little street just nearby that goes up about 13m in 130 metres*. Last week I ran up here and just continued along the ridge at the top which goes all the way to Ueno, but you can just turn right at the top and jog through a small park and then back down some steps to the start - about 300m in all. I did 20 repeats this time, and jogged the 3.6km there and back (with my son on his bike).

It was all fine, and I got my stretching in while I was waiting for my son's class to finish. But then once we were back, we were just messing around, play-fighting, and I stepped backwards and I felt something go in my calf! I've been icing it pretty much constantly ever since, and it doesn't feel terrible, but there is still something, so no track speedwork tonight (again).

*If I wanted steeper up, the reverse would be 13 metres up in 78 metres.

4.2 trail miles with the dogs so far. I’m heading out on my own now.

Ran another 7.3 miles on the icy roads and paths around my corner of Boulder. Temps ranged from the mid to upper 30s.

After 4 days off nursing my calf, I went out for my long run today. I was originally down to do 21km (13 miles) but because I'd missed a couple of days, I decided to run my 28.1km (17 1/2 mile) route instead. I hadn't done this distance since November, and it started to rain really hard on the way around so I was absolutely soaked through by the end, but it was great overall. I kept it easy by making sure I was always breathing through my nose and not allowing myself to draw more oxygen and go too fast (a little tip from a friendly coach), so I kept very close to my ideal 6:00/km pace at 5:58/km. I think I'll do the same distance next Sunday.

5.25 miles to my favorite local brewery and back. The trail section was really slow, since the snow is slushy in places. Temps in the low 40s. I read another ten pages or so in my book while there.

I hate you. Only joking, but this looks so good, and I can't drink anymore...

How did you do this? I've never ran after drinking beer before, was it alright? :)

Just fine... I only had one beer, and the trail conditions were pretty sloppy anyway. The route I chose to get there was about 1.5 miles each way on snow, so I wasn't going terribly fast anyway. Combine that with my 11.5 miles yesterday, and this was just an easy run with the dogs.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
