I was in Kansas for a couple of days, so my training fell off this week. I decided to make up for it with a 5 mile run followed by a CrossFit WOD. It was a perfect day for a run, about 75 degrees and sunny. The first 3 miles felt great, but then one of my feet started to hurt a little. I decided to push through it.
On the way back, I decided to run through a field of tall grass underneath some powerlines. It was probably only about a half mile in total, but the high grass meant stepping quite a bit higher than usual. It wore me out, and I ended up with dandelions in between my toes (running in my barefoot Vibrams). Once I got to the end of the field I stopped and walked for about a minute before running the final stretch home. I am starting to get some calluses on my feet. And my calves are still tight after every run.
When I got back, I did a light CrossFit WOD:
21 bench press (95#)
I probably should have done more weight on the bench (went unbroken) but that is what was on the bar when I got back and I wanted to start right away.
