AM: 3 miles, track, Vibrams 7:58, 7:54, 7:50
PM: lets call it 3 miles, Trails, Vibrams, 32:13

I ran three miles on the track this morning. I was pretty tired overall, my calves were a little sore from yesterday, but it still felt pretty good, no pains.

After work I went back to French Park. My plan was to retrace the 3.4 mile course that yesterdays race followed. Well, everything went as planned for the first 1/4 mile. I got off course quickly and never really figured it out after that. It's a small park so you can't really get too lost, but there are many small trails and turns that can get you off track. I think I did end up running most of the course, just not necessarily in the right order. Hey Brian, If you read this I just want to let you know that we missed some caution tape, lol. Don't worry I took care of it. At least that was on section of trail where I didn't get lost! This was the first time I have ever worn the Vibrams on trails. It was fun. You can really feel the trail, which means you can really feel all the rocks a twigs you step on! I don't think I'll be doing any long distance trail running without shoes for a while, but I'll wear them on some short trail runs. French Park is a great place to run. It's so close to my apartment, I don't know why I had never run there before.

I can't remember the last time I ran twice in one day, granted it was only 6 miles, but it was still nice.

That is one of the problems with the caution tape. You have to be off the trail to see it ;-)

Happy trails.
