6 on the rail trail in Paris(TX), gonna be here for the next week. At the turnaround I had a bit of tightness in my right calf but after maybe a mile at most it faded away and even doing stretches now I don't feel anything. Hopefully it just had to be run out. Humidity was through the roof(combined with two weeks of lackluster training) so an easy run at 6:49 avg pace meant a higher heart rate than usual. Happy I got it done!
Lots of cross training all day since I'm in a ranch family now. Biggest workout was when my dad cut down two 50 foot trees and chopped them up and I had to move them about 30 feet to the burn site. Managed to carry, drag, or flip some very heavy limbs, felt exausted after like I'd just ran my body to shreds in a run and felt happy because I miss that feeling, and hope to feel it soon. I wore the pegs all day and my calf was aching by the end I think it means the problem may be from the shoes, which would be amazing because I just can't figure out a way to get rid of this darn thing. If so all I have are my saucony flats with me(always kept a pair of flats and spikes in the trunk since high school, never stopped), but the blisters would be 100% worth getting to crank out some high mileage right now. Probably gonna shed a few pounds this next week, I haven't been able to get under 160 all year despite getting down to 153 in the fall.
