8 trail miles with the middle 4 on what I am going to call Roller Coaster Rd which is a 1 mile dirt road in the middle of the desert that has crazy steep hills on the whole thing.

I was cruising along this morning running at a low HR in the low 130s thinking how great is feels to be running 7:30 minute miles and not feel like I was working at all when all of the sudden about 8 1/2 miles into the run my left calf tighted and then gave me that sharp pain that I have gotten in the past when my calf gives me fits. I recognized what was happening really fast so was able to stop immediately and not casue any extra damage, so hopefully within a week I'll be back running strong again.  It sure is depressing though, that everytime I start to peak, my calfs give me problems!  My amazing running turned to a depressing run really fast.  I walked in the last 1 1/2 miles for a total of 10.

15 minutes walking the stairmill.

30 minutes arc trainer

15 minutes stationary bike

I did everything keeping my HR right at 135 which I found is way easier in the gym than out running in the real world.  My calf felt perfectly fine.  My old self would be out running tomorrow, but I'm going to take a few more days of cross training to be safe.

30 minutes stationary bike

10 minutes jump rope

30 minutes stationary bike

10 minutes arc trainer

Right near the end of my jump rope my calf started to tighten up a bit, then again it did it about 10 minutes into the arc trainer.  No pain just tightening but I stopped as soon as I felt that.  Maybe tomorrow I will try some light jogging.

Avg HR 115

90 minute hike with Doone and the kids. We climbed up to picnic table peak. It was a lot of fun and a good way to get some low intensity aerobic work in.
