Crawl to the Finish

Today's run

Distance: 9.66 miles
Time: Not sure. Watch still lost.
Weather/time: 30F at 9:00am.
Traffic: Light and lovely.

Within a mile of home on my long run for the week my right Achille's tendon started to protest. Actually, the protest started sooner. It wasn't until the intersection of Sanford and Ash (the old neighborhood) that the discomfort was so great that I was reduced to walking the last mile of the way home. Too much exertion in the cold is my best guess. I saw several other runners with that look in their eyes that they too had Spring marathons on the brain.

Several hours later I am relaxing with the paining area elevated and resting on a chilled ice pack.
