Actually feeling really good running right now. Able to run back to back days 2 times this past week. And 3 of those 4 runs I did without my compression sleeves! YAY!!!!!

Had the trail race on Saturday of 9 miles, then did 5 miles on Sunday. Rested on Monday. Ran 7 miles along the harbor Tuesday and tonight I did 5 miles with a lot of hills. So my legs are holding really good right now. Was worried ahead of the 2 trail races I did because my shin stuff was flaring up. But after both races it felt great until I started running on pavement. So I gots to limit my road running. No doubt.
I've incorporated a lot more stretching before and after runs. Even trying a product called Recover-Ease. Don't know if it is a coincidence or not but I ain't changing now! Plus I am back to my running weight that I was at 2-3 years ago when I was at my running bestest! Weight, even a few pounds, makes a lot of difference I feel. Less stress on everything when you run.

Thanks for the good-luck e-mail Rich! So you must have ran Big Baz's 2nd WTRS. Awesome. Wish I could have been there. I think the first Baz race this year that I will run is the 21k. That pavement stuff sucks. Hate to hear about trouble with your shins. Glad stretching is helping. I hope you own a foam roller. I foam roll every day. It does wonders.
