AM - just time for slightly less than 4 miles this morning on the treadmill before work.  Based on my schedule it looks like it will be a challenge to get a second run in - though I would really like to.

AM - indoor rowing and some rolling/stretching.

PM- 4 miles on the treadmill at lunchtime.  Wrapped the little toe with the blister/pain.  Seemed to work at least for the run.  Walking afterward in non-running shoes was still painful.

AM - awoke a little late - and left foot was feeling early signs of Plantar Fascitis - so I just ran a couple of easy miles in the Vibrams on the treadmill, following by some extended stretching, rolling etc.

 

PM - a little under 6 miles outdoors at lunchtime.  Pretty solid effort - felt ok.

AM - 10 miles with Finn - no watch - just an easy pace - exploring some new neighborhoods.  It had been raining much of the morning and the dirt roads left Finn a muddy mess and very much in need of a bath when we got home.
