One Last Long One & Run Schedule   Leave a comment

What a gorgeous morning on Saturday! Congrats to all the 13 milers – you all might be crazy (not trusting yoda’s directions???), but what a confidence booster! Thanks also for welcoming one of Kim’s DGs to the Mill!

For all the Roosters, its tapering time! That means it is injury prevention mode for the next two weeks. We are scheduled for 5 on Tuesday, an easy 3 on Thursday and 9 on Saturday. I can’t make a Saturday run (FF 4 miler and then VisionWlak kick-off meetings!), but 9 sounds like a whole lotta miles. Thoughts?

Tar Heel 10
Roger is running TH10 for time and Carolyn and her dad are running it together. Let’s do what we can to show some blazin’ support for our Tar Heel Soles on Saturday!

Wreckin’ our legs!
Wrecking Ball has some words o’ wisdom for us, learned through his recent calf problem, which was a "tear of the micro fibers that bind the bundle of the soleus muscle together, rather than a rip or cross fiber tear of the muscle itself. It keeps the muscle bundle from acting as a unit". James has developed some arch and pronation issues. "The message was evident when I looked at the soles of my running shoes. We need to monitor our shoe wear for signs that need correction." James is now "wearing compressive sleeves on my shanks. I also realized that I had backed off of some of my basic exercises such as calf raises and squats. As we get stronger we feel we need less warm-up and stretching, but the opposite is true." So have you popped a squat today?

Upcoming Runs:

Monday: Soggy Sole Swim @ CC ~ 5
Tuesday: ~5 Miler campus run from FF @ 7
Wednesday: Soggy Sole Swim @ CC ~ 5
Thursday: Stadium Steps & Hill Repeats @ 7
Friday: Soggy Sole Swim @ CC ~ 5
Saturday: OR 9 @ 8

Sunday: Soggy Sole Swim @ HAC ~ 5:30

What did I forget?
