Last week’s workouts were a good mix of running, strength training, yoga and doing whatever I wanted.  I’m purposely laying low on mileage because my Achilles is still puffy.  It’s not hurting (thankfully) but I’ve upped my eccentric calf stretches just to be on the safe side.  And with my parents in town for Christmas, […]
