Well getting back to jogging took a week later than I planned. No excuses, I have just been too lazy to make the trip down the block and into SNAP. The Tundra received 4 inches of snow yesterday and more is expected tonight. The trails and sidewalks are bad with ice. So training will need to be at SNAP going forward. Today I completed a little more than a 5k.(3.24 miles on the dreadmill) I wore the red wing supports in my shoes. I was a bit unsure about using them, but I found the support felt good. Toward the end of my jog my upper legs and calves felt sore. The question is, where my legs sore from something the supports were doing or (more likely) because I put in over 40 less miles for the month of November. Ugg. Tomorrow if I wake up pain free I will know for sure if jogging with the supports paid off. So far this evening I feel fine. Now that we are in the home streach my plan over the next few weeks is to get in two short runs and one medium run per week.
Chris asked about doing another virtual event in December. So here is what I'm thinking on Saturday Dec 27 we could do another event. But rather than set a specified mileage target I would let everyone name there own goal. At this point some of us may want to do a long run and some may not. The 27th is two weeks prior to the Disney run. So what do you guys think? Should we do another one?
