Great run this morning. Started a bit after 6am to power walk up Mt Wilson...9 miles in 2:18. Ran down ...took a detour so the return trip was 10 miles, 90 minutes. Elevation change between start and finish 4900feet.
The last time I did this run (November 2012) in my Asics, I could barely get out of the car after my drive home; and I took an ice bath with 20 pounds of ice to deal with my thrashed knees.
Today- in my trailgloves- no pain, zero. Quads and knees are fine.
The calves are still adjusting. It took 3 days after my Inspriation point run for the soreness to settle down enough that I felt it safe to run. So I am still alternating between running and walking to allow for the calves to accommodate. Gratifying that I am able to handle 10 miles of a steep downhill in the minimalist shoes as I did this morning..
