Hopefully nothing serious.

Tuesday morning this week the weather went crazy. It was 41o when I woke up at 5:30. When is it 41o in Michigan 3 weeks into June? Never, that's when. My early meeting had been cancelled, so it was a golden opportunity for a longer than usual run. Of course, since Achilles isn't 100%, longer than usual means probably 5 miles.

Even wore a long sleeved shirt.

About a mile out Sammy the left hammy began to tighten up. Slowing down helped, but not fully and he was pretty sore the rest of the day. Took Wednesday off. Tried a run this morning but still didn't feel right, so I bailed after a mile and came home. Doesn't seem like there's any serious damage, but it's all kinds of tight. I can feel it while sitting at work today. I daren't run more than a little until it's better. Put some heat on it. Roll it out. Try again tomorrow.

With thoughts of marathons in my head the last few weeks, this is a setback. Trying to be patient.

Bought a new laptop last night. I've been frustrated with the old one for awhile, but it was free - a hand-me-down from T-Rex when she went to school last year and got a new one.

Ugh!! It's all a chain - maybe the Achilles affecting the hammy?  It was 51-55 degrees for my Tuesday morning workout, which was surprising and amazing!

No doubt. From Achilles all the way up to Sammy I can feel things aren't right.

Hamstring stretches before you run - put foot on a chair and with a straight back lean into it. Calf stretches on the stairs. Stretch a tiny bit before every run. The cold weather may have made your muscles tight too. Oh and HYDRATE.
