Tom (head cold) and Danny (XC meet) bailed on me as I bailed on them on last Thursday (flying to Palm Springs). I ran alone for an hour up and down the trail at Blackberry Farm. My right achilles was bothering me a bit so halfway through the workout I dropped by the house and taped up my foot. That seemed to stop the discomfort but no question this bears watching. It's not coincidental that I've been using the slant board to stretch my calves. So for now I've stopped.
I used the HRM for the first time since my calf pull in early September. Stayed in the 130-140 range.
