Almost a runner again

Last week: 46 miles, with approximately 10K elevation gain. About 7.5 hours running, plus 2 hours cross training on the bike and in the water. I feel decent. This morning, I ran 10 miles, and I wasn't even limping when I finished.

Only issue? I'm sore. Real sore. I ran 9 miles up and around the lesser Green Mountain on Saturday, and holy crap, I really hurt. Not from injuries, but from sores calves, quads, and glutes. I guess it makes sense. While I'm doing plenty of elevation on the mill, I haven't run down a hill in five months. Re-introducing my body to running in the wild is going to take some time.

And for your viewing pleasure, break-dancing sharks and turtles.


  1. Awesome to hear! It was only a matter of time. That muscle memory will kick in soon enough.

  2. Yeah, it feels great. 46 miles isn't going to make Kilian Jornet nervous or anything, but it sure feels good in comparison to what I had been doing.
