Had a lovely run yesterday morning around the Phaffensee. But would you believe it, my dang left calf is screwed again. This time the pain is on the exterior of the calf, where the week before last it was focused largely on the interior of the calf. I'm not certain what's going on. Is it stretching? Warm up or cool down? Two weeks ago I thought it was related to my increased use of my Vibram Five Fingers, but I have not worn them in two weeks and have really concentrated on stretching. I'm becoming seriously worried that I'm not getting in the mileage I need leading up to the race... Crap!!!

Straight Up

Had a good week this past week going into the final for the UTMB. Got a couple of good "Jim Brown" runs in. Am getting nervous that I've not done enough of those jokers....
