Coopers Park and the Seawall
All this running is tiring me out. I think I overdid it this week with 6 workouts, including 5 km in my Vibrams on Friday – my calves have been really sore and tight since. This week I’ve been focusing on posture and form, so I thought a barefoot run would help my technique, but I should have kept it shorter.

Strava RunI’ve been uploading my runs to Strava, a cool running/cycling app for tracking workouts. I like the basic analysis it does – pace calculation, splits, elevation and speed charts. There’s also gamification to keep you motivated, like achievements for personal bests and leaderboards for common running routes.

3 week downs, 14 more to go. Last weeks results are here.
