My calves! My calves! Getting down the stairs after first waking up this morning was tricky!  My calf muscles are so tight!!  Not really painful, but tight and I can definitely feel them when I walk.   46 more words

On tap for today, a 25 minute run, which at a 4.3mph pace is 2.9kms.  I may push it to 26 minutes, just so I can make it a 3km run. 376 more words

Sadly, I chickened out on the run in Vegas last weekend. My sister did it, and she said it was tough.  I think I am sad I chickened out, but at the same time, it may have been too lofty a goal to have set for myself so early in my training.   338 more words
