I felt better today, so I went to the park this afternoon and ran my regular 2.5-mile loop.

Back to the park

My inflammation was down a little today, so I went to the park and did a short 1.4-mile trail run.

Close call

My inflammed foot was worse today and even had inflammation in the other foot.  I saw the doctor this afternoon.  He adjusted my medication and also gave me some pain pills.  I have an appointment with another doctor in Conroe on Monday.  Late tonight, I went to the track and ran a very painful mile.  This morning, I would not have been able to do it.  Close call, but the streak lives on.

Now, the left big toe

I woke up this morning with my left big toe joint inflammed.  I ran a painful short 1.2 miles on the roads at the park this evening.  Doctor's appointment tomorrow afternoon.

Where are the biting horse flies?

Normally, the biting horse flies are out in droves at Huntsville State Park from May to July.  Maybe they are quaranteening somewhere this year.  I am running the trails almost every day and I have only been bit a couple times.  Not complaining.  I ran my 2.5-mile loop at the park late this morning.

Short wet run

I met up with the group at the park this evening.  It was just me, Curtis and Jason.  Since it was lightning and raining, I cut the ran short.  Ended up doing 1.3 miles.

Firecracker 5K

I got up early this morning and drove and hour and a half to Mexia to run the Firecracker 5K.  It was one of the few races in Texas this 4th of July.  For the last 24 years, I have run the Stu's Country Mile 5K in Centerville, but is was cancelled this year.  I finished in 45:50 and was first in the 60 and over age group.  I was the only one, of course.

Park was full

Being is was the day before the 4th of July, the park was full this morning.  Luckily, I made reservations on line last week.  So, I was able to get in and run 2.5 miles on the trails.

Same course

I ran the same 2.5-mile course on the trails this evening, except that I did not have to navigate around the picnicers.

Something different

I went to the park late this morning and ran my normal 2.5-mile route on the trails.  About half way through the run, I found a family with several kids having a picnic in the middle of the trail.  In my 30+ years of trail running, I have seen that before.

I met up with the group at the park this evening and ran my usual 2.5 miles on the trails.

Maybe it's my age

Maybe it's my age, but I forgot to post again yesterday.  I ran 2.5 miles on the trails yesterday and did the same today.  At least, I did not forget to run.

Forgot to post yesterday

I realized this morning that I forgot to post yesterday.  I ran 2.5 miles on the trails at the park.  Late this morning, I got in 4 miles on the trails.
