Did my first speed training of this program. I don’t remember that last time I ran on a track. I think this is the first time that my new minimal shoes have really taken a toll on me. It must be a mixture of those and a different surface, but my calves are killing me. My back is still really hurting . . . we’ll have to see about tomorrow’s strength training. I may put it off to make sure my back has time to heal. We’ll see how I feel in the morning.
Started reading Fast Food Nation last night. Yet another thing to get me more convinced that I may never eat fast food again.
