I ran 13.1 miles today, on the trails, with an elevation gain of 2190 fts. I had not run a single time past 6 weeks or more. Suffering from a calf muscle injury, I was only on bike, swimming, and cross-fitting (avoiding the run workouts). I spent time working on my glutes, core, squats and used to row more. Workouts dealing in squats are the best overall workout for your body. Continue reading

Being a memorial day weekend, when most people are either traveling or getting their skin tanned. I had a nice affair with the trails today.
Good sunny day, yet cold, I was planning to log double digits mileage. Still getting my fitness back. Started off slow with tight hamstrings and thighs. Plan was to go slow, and cover the hills and unpaved trails, enjoying the weekend in the runners style !!
Took the trail path, where there was no rush, and I just saw in total 6 hikers, and 3 runners coming down. 2 miles of climb, with few steep ones, and the 5th mile was a steep climb, which for the last part, I had to literally walk. Check the Strava stats.
The best part of running uphill is that you get to relish the downhills. And the downhill part always gives me more energy, and a boost to run another mile.
Today I wasn’t worried about the pace, or the total time. I was there to enjoy my sunday run.
Go slow when you like, and pick the pace when you like !!
For all the runners out there, this is a hilarious video. Well, I have not heard any of this, except once in a while from my mom, but sympathies to the runners with families 🙂 …. Sorry Brothers and sisters, this is damn funny !!!
