Thursday, 01/20/11 Harper Lake/Davidson Mesa

Ran from the house over to Jeremy's office to get some heel risers to help with my achilles issue I have been dealing with since last April (in addition to backing off the hill running for a bit and wearing a night splint).  From Jeremy's office, ran S. Bldr Rd. West, to Via Appia, then over to Harper Lake, a loop around Davidson Mesa and then back.  Went a slow and easyish "rehab pace", not to mention the poor footing on the snow and ice kept things mellow.  Maintained an average HR of 146 and the achilles felt good, not at all taxed.  I actually somewhat enjoyed this run, but I think that was in part due to the fresh snow and the good podcasts on the mp3 player.
