The lower part of my left leg was hurting a good amount so I cut more run short. Stretched and rolled out my legs well afterwards. I'm hoping the culprit for the pain isn''t the new pair of shoes that I started wearing today. I've never had problems with Kinvaras before, hopefully it isn't that.

Ran to the mouth of Dry Canyon. Wore my old shoes and my feet didn't hurt. I didn't have any problem with Kinvara's in high school, but I guess my feet need more support than the Kinvara provides. Shins were hurting a touch on the downhill on the way down the hill in front of the canyon.

Smithfield Canyon. Legs were aching a good amount. Sat in the river for a bit after. Haven't taken an ice bath since high school haha. Early next week i'm going to do some cross training, give my legs a few days rest from running impact.
