I am serious….my calves are going to be killers. Well at least I hope this pain and soreness I am going through are going to make them that way. I have run my second actual run in my Vibram Five Fingers. They continue to excite me and I enjoy wearing them, but I get kind of bummed out when I can run as far as I was before. I know the transition takes a while but I want to be ready now. My calves and Achilles tendon’s are definitely getting a work out.
I am second guessing if I will be ready for another 10k in June. I know I can make it happen if I were to run it in my shoes but the VFF’s feel so much better. I really like feeling the ground when I run. I am hoping to run the Hospital Hill 10k and if I don’t feel I am ready then it will be the 5k. All this will be working up to the Kansas City Half Marathon in October. I have always said that I didn’t want to do that much running, but I am finding myself enjoying it.
I do hope to get my bicycle out this weekend and start putting more miles on that. It probably has been lonely since last October.
