morning - 17.5 Fields/Hell Hole. I remember the alarm going off, but not much more; so I missed running with Steven. Got up later and had an idea of what I wanted to do, but it all changed as I got going. Ran into the Fields. Then went up Majestic. As I got to the turn for DogTown, I decided to just keep going out toward Warner Valley and check out the progress on the Parkway extension - it might get done before the world ends. Turned around and wasn't sure where I wanted to go. Ended up going on the dirt behind the Dome and out onto the Dam Road. About stepped on a lizard and it took off so fast, that when it hit the burm it launched into the air about 2 feet then did a flip as it tried to figure out what was going on - it was awesome! Finished back on the Dam Rd. into Hell Hole and home. Nothing crazy, just kind of trotted along and made it through. (Kinvara3 383)
Kind of a good week to have over. Wanted to get my Achilles feeling better and there has been progress from the singles and wearing a Strausburg sock.
Goals for next week: I really would like to get running a little harder. I think I am ready mentally (since I want to); will I be there physically? Tis is the worst Achilles injury I've had. Usually I can ice up tendonitis and get rid of it within a few days. I guess that just shows the extent of it since it has been over a month now.
