Need to practice my running selfie too.  

  • My left calf got very irritated after Thursday's run. It felt like I had gotten a charlie horse and there was just a ball of really tight muscle still in there.  I stretched and massaged it on Friday and Saturday and thankfully by Sunday it felt pretty good.  I decided to cut my run short on Saturday because it was still tight.  I'd rather train less right now than risk injury.  
  • I switched the battery out in my speed sensor on my bike and updated and restarted my watch so I am hopeful I've fixed the speed dropping out issue.  I know indoor trainer "miles" don't matter and aren't equivalent to outdoor miles but I just want to know when I am going faster. First world problems. 
  • I don't love how dark it is in the mornings but I sure love having a lot of light after work! I was able to run on Millennium Trail on both Tuesday and Thursday. It's been a few months since I've been able to run there because I won't run there in the dark.  
  • Matt was gone again this week but now he doesn't have any upcoming travel on his schedule! Yay!  
  • We got back at 9:30pm on Sunday night from our weekend visit to Iowa and I got on my bike and rode till a little after 11pm.  Crazy? Yes, but I wanted to get a ride in.  I am looking forward to warmer weather and being able to ride my bike outside! 
  • 122 days to go!
