It was another fast "tempo" run last night on the trails after dark, with the Trail Nerds. I warmed-up by doing a 1-1/2 hour gym workout with Igor, my personal trainer. I had some "recovery food," which consisted of a bag of Clif Shot Bloks, water, and a single shot of espresso at my son's Starbucks. I had just enough time to get dressed and get to the park to run. We ran the first 4.6-mile loop in 39 and change, and the 2nd loop in 34:40. Doug twisted his ankle on a rock or root, but he did o.k. on both loops.
My right knee was hurting from a fall that I had in my garage on Sunday, but it did just fine. It's a little stiff today, though. It's stupid...I rarely fall on night or day trail runs, but I end up tripping in my own damn garage. It couldn't have had anything to do with drinking beer during "White Trash Theater," though, right?
This morning I did back, biceps and abs in the gym. Tonight, I'll run a slow 5 to 7 mile run in either SM Park, or Kill Creek Park.
