Training Log - Thursday, December 2, 2010
I decided to keep my running streak going and ended up getting a quick 4.5 miles in around UAH. Richard came by my house at 6PM and we left from there. I made sure I bundled up as it was already rather cold, maybe upper 30s. As soon as the sun goes down, temperatures have been dropping dramatically in the last month or so. Winter is fast approaching, even in the South. I ended up overdressing, wearing one too many layers, but I figured I'd rather be hot than cold, especially for a shorter run like the one we did. Richard's knee kept acting up. All systems are go for me right now with one little exception...the left (and sometimes the right) achilles tendon stays somewhat sore. It's not really a bad pain, jsut more like a slight twinge that stays in the background. I do want to get rid of it before February and Rocky Raccoon 100. Little twinges turn into major desasters during those distances.
