My foot was a little better the last couple of days so I ran 2 easy miles with Callie before she leaves for California today. It still feels like it has a big lump in it so I'm sure it will be sore for the next few days.

Sorry I haven't been posting lately but there's been nothing going on in my running world.

Trying to push it up on the mileage a little. Foot is still on the verge of exploding but with a day's rest in-between each run I'm managing. 1/31/2016 Mile Time HR HR % Max HR 1 7:51:00 153 81% 2 7:48:00 161 86% 3 7:50:00 166 88% 4 7:17:00 172 92% 0.2 warm-up & cool-down Total 30:46:00 163 87% Pace 7:41:30 WT Temp 62 Humidity Dew Point Wind
