Well, I had my second run back from achilles rest and recovery. Did just under three miles at 12 minutes pace. Felt better than Monday, but not perfect. Maybe I am expecting too much. Will I always have the achilles in the back of my mind? Will I always feel “something” there? Between wondering IF I actually feel something (let’s be clear: I feel NO pain) and dealing with my frostbit calf (which feels like a bad sunburn–you know how if you move or stretch after a sunburn, it feels like the skin is tight and “burning”? That’s how it feels back there. So it is hard for me to determine if my calf is tight or my skin is tight from frostbite.
But the larger issue is that I am running again, ever so slowly and patiently.
What I am feeling is HOT! Today at 6 am in Panama City Beach, Florida it was 80 degrees (F) and 96% humidity–before the sun had risen in full!!!!! I ran three and was totally drenched–as if I had jumped in the pool! I was seriously under-hydrated and got the dry-heaves when I got back to the condo. A boat load of water and I felt better. I plan on running the treadmill on Friday!
Can anyone recommend a good, light, hydration pack?
