I am an Ultra Runner

My weekend went well.  I got in two hikes on tough trails and my calf hung in there.  This week I'll be back to short trail runs.  Before you know it, I'll be back to long ultra runs...like this guy in the video:



If you are doing lots of long runs like most ultra runners, make sure you don't forget to spend plenty of time with your family and friends too. Running is not life. It should make life better...don't replace life with solo running. I have to admit that breakfast, or lunch, sure does taste great after a 4-5 hour run!

I bought a pair of compression socks for longer training runs, recovery, and fast races. I vaguely remember that old injury--it was over 3 years ago! Speed work is bad...treadmills are bad...speed work on treadmills is deadly.
