DAY 8 - Mojo Fi-yah!
That is until I stepped on a goathead.
If you don't know what these little nasties are they will make you cry just looking at it. They are four-pronged spiny little mofos and they are elusive! You'll never see them on the ground but you'll feel it in your foot. The first one got stuck in my heel but didn't go in very far. I caught the second one around the edge of my pinky toe. Luckily, my feet have been toughened up by the asphalt I've been accustomed to running on so the pain wasn't so bad. Another rite of passage I suppose.
All in all, it was a great run. My left calf started to pipe up within the last tenth of a mile or so, but nothing like the pain game I've been playing for the last 4 weeks. Its a little sore tonight, but the rolling pin seems to have sorted that out somewhat. I'll see how it feels in the morning.
