A trying week. Participating in the NASA study on the Zero-Gravity Locomotion Simulator (ZLS) was not what I expected. The load placed on me has caused sore feet and the residual effect carried over to my run training. I'm going to have to decide if continuing with the study is in my best interest.

20 miles on hills at Hinckley is usually a milestone training run. This one just beat me up from the get-go. I dealt with that sore feet feeling from the start and it was huge mental game just to complete.

Next week I hope to start hitting the trails more often.

If it's going to get in the way of your goals, than that's a choice you have to make.

However, this is a one-time experience. :)
