AM - 18.75 Parkway/Middleton.  Ran the Parkway before practice.  Then we ran out into Middleton and up on the Red Hills Parkway by Pioneer Park.  On the way back we hit 3 miles of tempo.  Mike was back in town (finally!) and was running well, so we led the pack throughout.  Then finished with the two miler around DogTown for our 12 miler.  Ran home and then with the dog and girls.  (Barefoot '12 79.5)(Connect 255.5)

afternoon - 6 DI/AC.  Ran DI with the extension and AC for practice with weights and ploys.  (Zero 24)

AM - 11 Hell Hole/Dirt Mile. Out for a few slow easy miles before practice down along the river and an easy 4 at practice today. (Boston 868.5)(Barefoot '12 80)

afternoon - 5.5 Grapevine. Junk... Injury time. Planned on my 7.5 miler up to Highland,but just starting up the hill, my left calf went nuts. It had felt tight the whole morning and the first of the run (because I couldn't take care of because of kids club), but I hoped it would loosen up. Anyway... first few steps up the hill it sent a shooting pain right up my calf. I walked a few steps and stretched and then tried to run again. A weird grind happened in the very bottom of the muscle and about dropped me to the ground. I decided to turn back and limped, walked, hobbled back. That in itself was very painful and tedious. So icing, compression, rolling, Wintercrest hoping it will loosen up. Best case just a way right muscle that kind of spazzed out - worst case a blown up calf muscle. Hoping for the former, but it hurt bad enough that it could be the latter - lame. (NB 110 288)

My leg is screwed up. So bummed. I tried to limit my movement around the XC course because it killed, but that was way hard - not my style. So crossing my fingers that staying off and treatment until Monday will work. If I'm lucky. Team did pretty well at the meet though, and Rylee ran her first 6th grade race and that was a lot of fun to be with her.

Nothing today - a lot of pain.

Again nothing.  Sometimes I think there is some improvement; then it will hurt a lot.

Went down to watch Allyson run the Provo River Half.  She did a great job and ran a new PR - breaking 2:00 for the first time ever.  Was a bit bummed not to be running.

Obviously the week wasn't great.  Seems to be turning out to be a bummer year leading up to SGM.  

Goals for next week:  run?!
