Had a hard timing getting up this morning just really groggy.  Made it out the door though and felt really good today.   Even though it rained on me for a little over half my run, I had a great run today.  Plan was to go 5.5 but I pushed it to 7.1

Latest plan to try and get my heel to stop hurting is to follow a longer run with a shorter run.  Heel was a little sore this morning following the longer run yesterday so I cut it down to 4 today.  Good run, last mile was 8:16.

So far so good with the long/short run to help my heel get better.  It felt better yesterday after the shorter run and this morning so I ran 7 again today.  In addition I'm really trying to watch my form as far as running upright, I tend to lean forward and look down a little bit. 

Good run just took it nice and easy and ran how I felt didn't look at my watch at all.  Nice morning for a run, overcast a little cool.

Great song to run to came on the Ipod this morning, The Sky is Crying by Stevie Ray Vaughn.

Lucked out and got a break in the rain to run in this morning.  Good run this morning, so far my heel feels better than it's felt for a while.  The longer/shorter runs are working pretty well, I'm also stretching out really well and keeping my foot angled on a Phone book all day to keep the achilles area stretched out.

Decided to golf this morning instead of run, good decision.  Great weather and great golf.  Walked 9 holes carrying the clubs.

Got up to rain, no surprise it's been raining most of the time for the last 2 weeks.  Since I golfed yesterday I hit the treadmill for 5 this morning.  Good run for a treadmill run but not great because it was on the TM.
