Dissapearing Danny

Tuesday: 70 minute run with Tom and dissapearing Danny. I mean it. We're coming back by where the cars are parked and suddenly Danny says "I gotta go". Meaning leave. Of course his spouse is there so no doubt it was preplanned.

Bought Tonic water to see if it will help calf cramps. Dunno. It has quinine. Also received magnesium oil in the mail. Used it Thursday morning after my blitz water conserving shower.

Wednesday: 45 minute walk with Lucy. Threw in 18 minutes of running.

Thursday: 70 minutes with Tom. Danny walked today. He was beat up from yard work.

Saturday: 52 minutes mostly on the track. Calf cramped, but I ran through it. Second Saturday in a row for this kind of thing.

Sunday: 70 minutes of very slow running. As usual the calf issues disappeared as silently as it came upon me. Dimitri, who has no problem with slow and low (track) ran an easy pace alongside me.

Covering the bases

Tuesday: 73 minute easy MAFEVA run with Tom and Danny.

Wednesday: 2 miles ++ Dawg walk with Lucy. 15 x 1 minute jogs

Thursday: 65 minutes of 120-130 heart rate. Tom and Danny. Cool but a bit humid.

Saturday: 20 minute warmup. Ran 2.75 with Tom in 26:24. 8 minute ++ easy jog afterwards. High achilles cramp during the 2.75. I was able to run through it.

Sunday: 70 minutes mostly running. Did two loops of the Blackberry Farm Trail. The first with Lucy in 38 minutes ( plenty of walks ). The second by myself in 32 minutes ( less walks ). No problem with achilles, but I put in an extra heel lift on both shoes and stayed flat as much as possible. Back on magnesium. Gotta cover the bases.

Testing Achilles

Tuesday: Danny was out of town. Tom and I ran 71 minutes of MAFEVA in moderate conditions. Heat wave coming in today. Just not in quite yet. My quads were a tiny bit sore from Sunday's hills, but outside of that, all was well.

Wednesday: Dawg walk with Lucy. Threw in 10 x 1 minute if easy running.

Thursday:  72 minutes with Danny and Tom. Warm and humid.

Saturday: 60 minutes of MAFEVA. Socialized a great deal.

Sunday: 70 minutes with striders on the track to test that achilles. Everything seems fine.
