1) Revelation of the summer: I like strawberries. This is strange as I’ve always hated strawberries, but it seems I now hate peaches instead. How is it that the fuzzy crud never bothered me before? It’s like biting into a caterpillar. *shiver*
2) I attended the wake of a distant family member on Tuesday in lieu of my scheduled run which ment double duty come Wednesday. I woke up bright and early and hammered out a 5 mile run with two 1 mile speed intervals at an 8:46 pace. A funeral, oodles of family together time and two plates of food later I came home and logged another three miles. I’m calling it even.
3) My calves are achy. I’ve been reading about compression socks and wondering if they might help. I’m not about to shell out $50+ for them though. I’m thinking of a trip to CVS where I drop $12.99 instead. Havn’t you heard? Beige is so the new black.
Have you used compression socks for recovery? Do you run in them?
