Sunday - 1:30 bike ride

I decided to spend another day off the feet and ride my bike instead. This has been more or less a recovery week, so the bike ride is apropos. Some athletes recover better than others. I might be one to over-do things a bit, not that I'm in some sort of serious training regimen, but training for May 17th has me on a schedule. Trevor Glavin responded to my question about his recovery, which consists of taking 1-2 days off during that week, maybe more! That guy has some results to support his training. Two weeks ago I ran 50 miles, last week 58 and this week 30 miles. That's my recovery week. I took two days off, ran three days and cross-trained the other two days.

Tomorrow I have quite a day: Disneyland with wife, child and niece. I'm giddy just thinking about it.


  1. hey, for the plantar fasciitis you may also want to check out the "trigger point" footballer on their website. they talk about how to massage the calves to alleviate pf - so, treating the cause of it instead of treating the symptoms. something to think about! either way, it sucks....
    i also, almost always, wear my danskos around the house so i never have to stand on hard floors.

  2. Kerrie,
    Thanks for the input. I've been hitting that lower calf with "the stick" and stretching my toes, wearing comfortable shoes and things are getting better. Also, I'm taping now before I run. Lucho made it pretty clear that taping is a no-brainer. I think it helps.

    I'll checkout the trigger point footballer.
