    Yah, it was fun, but then towards the end became a chore, and now I'm incredibly tight, an ITBS waiting to happen. Started to loosen things up yesterday, will continue with stretching breaks today.

    My hyper bench came yesterday. Sweet:

    However, I had to do some test hyperextensions while making adjustments, and that just made me tighter. Today I'll try some more as part of my plyo/mobility workout. It's supposed to be twice a week. I also got the Yoga Anatomy book, so I'll try to work some of that stuff in as part of my stretching routine. Not happy with getting so stiff all of a sudden.

    So Wednesday pm one-mile run-commute at 41F/ I forgot to write down the windchill. Then mediocre bench press as my left shoulder felt gimpy, and just biceps curls afterwards as I had some banking to do before picking up the kids. Still, got a bit of a pump. I think the everyday lifting is getting results.

    Thursday am, one-mile run-commute at 33F/25F windchill. Very pleasant. Probably should've gotten in my 3.1-mile route, but I'm going to hold off on a proper run until I get my posterior chain and ITB loosened up.

    Chairs are butt orthotics, I like that Scratch. I should probably sit-squat a coupla times a day. Funny though, I can usually sit in an office chair all day without any problem, even when I don't get up to stretch or use the stand phase of my sit-stand desk. Yesterday was murder though, and I had trouble sleeping too. My spine, glutes, hammies, and ITB felt achy in all positions.

    Fifth day without caffeine. I feel alert and well.

    Wed - A bunch of wood chopping instead of weight training.

    Today - 61 minte run to Harbins park and back...sunny high 60'sF...started getting a bit hot feeling not used to the warmer weather yet. One small blister on my left foot not a problem at all as usually get one Spring blister while building mileage back up.

    30 minutes barefoot on the treadmill again. I like that this treadmill the belt does not get hot so it doesn't other me barefoot at all. Still trying to keep my runs simple right now so I can make sure that my calf is good so still running by heart rate and time. Calf is feeling really good but I am afraid to push it too much yet pace wise. Excited for when I feel confident enough in my calf that I can run outdoors again. Oh, and I also hate to jinx myself, but I haven't had any signs of pf since before the Shamrock run. Could it actually really be gone????

    Sweet 6 mile run at 5:00 am 75 deg. f. 74%rh.

    I always hang from a tree or a bar for back therapy.

    I have had cuts on my feet (some caused by glass) I use a band aid and 2 layers of KT tape (and keep running) till it heals.

    Thursday: A few hours of barefoot grocery shopping. No one even asked me about it. Rode the spin bike in the evening for 60 minutes alongside dear hubby.

    Friday: 6.5 miles without duct tape went just fine, EXCEPT, I nearly received a lobotomy from a bird bomb at mile 5.7. I thought someone had hit me with a rock! Never heard anything from the bomber in the sky. I guess I'm lucky it missed the front of my face or didn't drip down onto my forehead. I have never had this happen before! :eek:

    Now, I'm going out into the garden to play, because it is my birthday weekend and I pretty much get to do anything I want. :D

    Laura, happy bday weekend. a few hours grocery shopping? wow. more than half an hour and i'm done.

    th-short walk. it rained on me and the dogs as we started walking. took my daughter to drivers ed and had to sit for 2 hours. wow. i learned quite a bit. about how teenagers react, or don't, to danger on the road. enlightening.
    f-2 runs. meant to do one early and another later in the day. first was w/out dogs. came home and they were crying "you forgot us". took them out right away. i of course ran faster w/out them.

    OH. now i remember what i wanted to say to BL.
    hey. i did some pull ups and for the first time i could feel my lats engaging. no shoulder, no biceps. felt great. i felt strong. it was wait for it, awesome.

    Happy birthday Laura!

    30 minute high incline walking at avg 3 mph on treadmill in my monos. My treadmill does 15% incline and I know there are those new incline treadmills that do 40%, but I can't help but think why the hell would anyone want to go much steeper than 15%??? 15% is plenty good for me and whips my butt pretty bad.

    Well, in my attempt to adjust to having fewer children at home, I let the cupboards get quite bare of some essentials. And I was hungry, so I had to buy a lot. :p

    morning; 4.5 mi, light misty rainish snowish
    midday: 35 min swim, the cool water helped a returning fever, but was tiring.

    evening: some gym time, maybe 45 min, slowly getting through a little st

    We got 9-10 inches of snow Thursday thru Friday morning, so took the kids in the morning and drove to the office. Got in a fast version of my plyo/mobility workout, will do a fuller version tomorrow. Hyperbench worked well.

    Heel fissures on the mend (I think that Flexitol helped!).

    General tightness gone after moderate stretching the last few days.

    Blew off the rest of my st this week, now I feel as guilty as catholic school boy.

    Won't run today either, but the snow's already half-melted, and many streets are already bone dry. The forecast is for upper 40s today and 50s tomorrow, so I'll try to get in a proper run tomorrow morning to kick off (hopefully) a week of full implementation of my morning running/afternoon lifting routine.

    So, 39.2 miles on the week after an obsessive end to the Winter Challenge at the beginning of the week. Then two days of two-miles-per-day run commuting, then two days of snow-induced sloth. I think the short break will do me some good.

    Hope you're feeling better Sced. It's been a bad winter for you cootie-wise.

    Happy Birthday Laura, hope you kick up a storm dancing bare.

    30 minutes of general ST. I seem to really like this type of ST training. Little bit of everything but only twice a week instead of the 5-6 days a week I was doing. So far in 6 days with slight diet alteration and exercising more frequently I have lost 2 lbs. I also am on my 6th day of no heartburn meds and am doing fine. The hotsauce last night on my tacos did me no favors, but it's also the only hot sauce I've ever had give me hicuups. I usually really like hot n spicy, and I do like this stuff it just gives me bad hicuups.

    Just gotta add that I just tried walking upstairs in our house after the ST. Ya, squats suck and I may not like the next day or two with how many times I go up and down these stairs in a day....

    Friday - wood chopping and first grass cutting of the Spring...the Pine pollen has really kicked up now and I'll try to do my runs right after it rains if I can.

    Today - 8 mile run at Tribble Mill park, pretty good overall..an unplanned tempo run with a faster runner. My plan was for 1 hour of slow trail running but after about a mile another runner passed by and started talking to me about being barefoot, so we talked and ran some more then talked some more and pretty soon 7 miles went by then the other runner had to swerve off to do his tempo running miles. From talking with him he is a very fast Ultra marathon runner.

    Checked my Garmin afterwards and I was running about a half marathon pace when I was talking with this other runner and he was in warmup mode. From talking with him he has ran several of the same trail races as me and won a few of them and currently is in taper mode for the Boston marathon this year...I explained my barefoot deal to him(the short version) and he had only known a little about it but was a bit astonished that i had won some awards in the same races that he had won the overall.

    To me the most interesting things we talked about were the hardships a barefoot runner could expect to encounter on a 50 miler compared to a 100 mile Ultra...after that I could see myself doing 50k or 50 miler but a 100 miler looks much harder due to running in the dark all night.

    Nick, squats are awesome. the soreness that may follow, not so much.

    sat-lil yog with da dogs. saw a friend moving back into his childhood home. saw my cousin warming up to play soccer. well, she saw me. my glasses don't define faces so far away. lil body weights. dogs kept running off so no pistols, yet.
