Just finished my 3-mile run. This is the third day back running after achilles rest. Rainy and too hot outside so I ran on the treadmill. I did 3 miles, 12 minute pace. I felt good—there was no pain, but a little soreness in my calf from stretching and really working calves a great deal.
After my hydration problems from the other day, I went to a local bike shop and bought a Camelbak Blue Wave Hydration pack. It was 30% off, so for 20 bucks I guess I couldn’t go wrong. I had debated whether I should get the fanny pack or the backpack, but the backpack was 20 dollars cheaper and held 2 times as much water as the fanny pack, which held only 28 ounces. The one I bought holds 1.5 liters. It took a little getting used to, but I will find it easier to take this pack on an 8 mile run in August than planting water bottles all over my route.
