Back to the park

I felt a little beat up today after the 10 miler yesterday, but I worked out at Iron Works this afternoon and ran 2.2 miles at the state park, mostly on the trails.

Texas 10 College Station 10-Miler

I ran the Texas 10 Series 10-Miler in College Station this morning.  I never walked, but ran awfully slow and finished in 2:37:31.  There were only 3 of us in the 70 and over age group, so I got 3rd place.

Short race

Yesterday, my big toe joint started getting inflamed again.  I started taking medicine to head it off, but it was still sore this morning.  I had planned to run our club 5K this morning, but switched to the 1-mile race because of the toe joint, to run with my 4-year old grandson and because I have a 10-mile race tomorrow morning.    I finished in 13 minutes something and was 2nd overall (behind my grandson).

Veterans support banquet

I went to a veterans support banquet at the fairgrounds tonight, so I ran earlier at the park.  Did 2.2 miles, half on the trails and half on the roads.  At the banquet tonight, I got a chance to meet and visit with Earl Campbell, who was introduced by the keynote speaker as the great running back, Hershel Walker.

Cold and rainy

It was suppose to rain all day, so I went out to the park late this morning when it was 43 degrees and ran 2 miles on the park roads - in the rain.

Heel improving

Even though all the inflammation is not gone from the heel, it felt better today.  After Iron Works, I went to the park and ran 2.2 miles, half on the trails and half on the roads.

Icing and Ibuprofen

I continued to treat my inflammed heel with ice and Ibuprofen today.  It felt a little better this afternoon, so I ran 2.4 miles on the trails at the state park.

Darn heel inflammation returns

I woke up this morning with inflammation in my right heel (bone spur and floating piece of bone).  Guess it was brought on by the trail run yesterday.  I iced it twice today and ran 1.2 miles in my old neighborhood this afternoon.

Around the lake

After spending much of the day in Spring for my grandson's wrestling match, I went out to the park and ran around the lake (6.9 miles).

Lots of pig activity at the park

There has been a lot more wild pig activity at the park lately.  Every day I run at the park, I find fresh diggings along the trails.  Now, in some places, they are digging up the trail itself.  Its like running through a plowed field.  I went out to the park this afternoon and ran 2.4 miles on the trails.

After Iron Works and then 2.2 miles at the park this evening, I showered and then drove down to Houston to have dinner with my son.
