A bit of massage yesterday and a fantastic adjustment and I'm ready to roll. I ran everywhere yesterday--to and from the car, down the hallway at work, while mowing the lawn and collecting leaves. I even chased our 3-legged cat Gracie around a bit. Seriously, she can move. Add that to the fact she doesn't like me much (or any male, for that matter), and it's not a bad workout!
My improvement honestly makes me wonder if a 3 week taper is too much for me. I think I may try a couple different strategies with that next year. Tomorrow, I'm going to watch the mighty PHS CC team in their Conference meet (a couple of their runners are patients), and after that it's run time!
Well, not immediately after that. Ellie and I are going hiking in the Kettles to see the fall foliage. Then it's run time! Woo hoo! I'm looking at doing a nice 8 mile trail run with the younger of my training partners (Bonnie). I honestly can't wait!
UPDATE I really couldn't wait, so I'm heading out this afternoon. But I'm going to have to run fast to beat the setting sun!
