We quickly realized that the eight inches of snow that fell on Thursday hadn’t been plowed, and that our run would be an adventure!
We met our Cruiser friend Alan, strapped on our Yaktrax, and took off. Cross-country skis and snow shoes had packed down the snow for us early on, but it was still tough going.
As soon as I woke up this morning I was aware of my calves – very aware! They were stiff and sore and didn’t want to move. As the day wore on, my walking became more of a hobble; and stretching, foam rolling, and staying very well hydrated became my self prescribed therapy.
Tomorrow will bring more of the same pampering, and most likely by Tuesday morning my calves will no longer be sore, and will be ready to take me on another adventure. And hopefully, a bright and warm sun tomorrow will melt the remainder of the snow off of the trail, and have it clear for my friends and me bright and early Tuesday morning!
