Personal:

I used to run competitively, and maybe I will do so again someday.  Right now I am primarily running to try and get in better shape, and to maintain both physical and emotional health, but also for the simple joy that comes when I run.

I am also the proud daddy of five little ones.  I love the opportunity that I have to be a daddy, and my challenge is to balance my family responsibilities with work and running.

Easy run this morning with Sasha.  A little sore after the half on Saturday, but not too bad.

Not sore anymore, but I tweaked my back during the run today.  It hurt to breathe, which is not a good thing.  After the run I was stretching out my back and I ended up making things worse, and was rolling around on the ground in pain for a couple minutes.

My back is still pretty painful, and is probably only slightly better than yesterday.  I was able to run without too many problems as the pain lessened some in the evening and I ran then.

Still somewhat sore, but my back is feeling a lot better today.  However, I strained my right calf, probably as a result of changing my form due to the back pain, in addition to the stress from the half marathon a week ago.  The pain got worse after my run and it hurt to walk for a little while.

The calf pain is still pretty bad, so I took a day off to let my leg rest.  The strain was caused from calf muscles being too tight.  I am working on loosening them up, and once that is done I should get better pretty quickly.

I was able to run 10.3 miles this morning with minimal pain.  Later on in the afternoon I ran to work, and then ran home as well to end up with a total mileage of 16.1 on the day.  Both on the way too work and on the way home my calf started to hurt, but I was able to walk fine after finishing the run with minimal pain.  After work I iced my calf and that helped a lot in addition to massaging out the tight spots.
