Daily Note

Woke up @9am and was running by 9:25am. Weather was 60 degrees, 11 mph winds, and mostly cloudy. Fantastic to be able to slide outside in split shorts and a t-shirt. Went solo. Explored some regions of Bonita Bay that I hadn't before. Did pretty much every northern road I could, which lead to lots of running around cul-de-sacs. Added on by heading down the main stretch for a mile and back. I certainly regretted not rolling or stretching after the treadmill WO yesterday. Legs felt incredibly weird the first mile. Thankfully, the left foot wasn't too present, but something else unfortunate arose. About 8 miles in, my right achilles really started to become a bother. Had to heel strike to avoid excessive which is pretty worrisome and annoying. Was planning on doing a two-a-day, but figured I'd play it safe and avoid aggravating things this evening. Hopefully this is just due to tight calves and lack of stretching yesterday. Fingers crossed for sure! Still managed to cruise along at a good pace, mostly due to the lack of elevation change...this place is as flat as a pancake! Legs felt flat and was never really able to get into a rhythm. Afterwords, did rolling, stretching, the Elliot Core Routine, calf raises, 20 squats, & toe tappers. Nice to be able to do core with Crete and not simply alone...always makes it better. PF7s @ 342.4 miles.
