I’m still recovering from the sprained ankle but I’m excited about my run/bike streak. While it’s really a walk/bike streak right now. As soon as I can run, which I am hoping in a week, it will be a rightful run/bike streak.
My walks are typically around Concord, trying to walk a different street each day. The cover image above is Merrimack Street. I love the big houses and front lawns on this street.
Here was a sign near the high school that made me smile. I really like the plants in the logs.
The weather is finally getting a bit warmer and that is good. I hope to ride the tri bike this afternoon.
My left calf is still pretty sore. I think I must’ve injured it slipping on ice prior to getting on the trails on Sunday. I iced it most of Sunday and Monday. I took an epsom salt bath Monday night. The only exercise on Monday was a mile hike in the morning and a few dog walks during the day.
Today, Tuesday, the calf feels better and I am going to foam roll and then go to the Y for some elliptical and stair climbing. I can’t take the day completely off because I know me and two days off will be detrimental to training and the momentum I’ve been building.
The hope is by taking a few days off from running it will heal and I can run by Thursday.
