The weather this week was absolutely perfect for getting outside. It’s a rare treat here in the summer when we’re not swimming in humidity, so I took advantage of it even if it meant turning my runs into walks after a my left hammie got all bent out of shape and cramped up on me on Tuesday.



  • Tuesday 
  • Intervals – 1-mile warm-up, 2 x 1200’s at 7:27, 7:30 paces (goal pace was 7:30) with 400 recoveries, 1 x 400 at 7:30 pace, 1-mile cool-down
  • Rodney Yee’s Complete Yoga For Beginners (affiliate link) – Yoga For Flexibility
  • Teeter Inversion – 15 minutes

Feeling great, I ran to the track to meet my MRTT friends on Tuesday, and just like last week we got to watch the mama fox play with her babies in the brush beside the track. I felt completely normal during my warm-up and my first two 1200’s; however, just after I finished the first lap of my third 1200, my left hamstring seized up. I walked around a little, stretched, and tried another 1200, but since I couldn’t get the knot to relax, I quit and walked dejectedly back to my car.

After giving my pesky hamstring several days of rest from running while pampering it with foam rolling and stretching, I decided it was worth trying a nice and easy run on Saturday morning. I skipped joining my MRTT or Cruiser friends so I wouldn’t be tempted to run faster than I should. I kept my pace a good minute and a half slower than last Saturday’s run and felt very little tightness. Yay!


Both of our sons were home for Father’s Day, and after brunch at home, and we had fun playing Corn Hole. Right now Bill, is enjoying a bike ride; and we plan to have one of his favorite dinners tonight. Happy Father’s, Babe!
