After effects from travel and big weekends..., by @aussieninja

Traveling last week taught me a couple of things.... 1.) People in airports are the worst people, and 2.) you just have to accept that you're going to be really cold. I think number 2 really helped my running today. I've always tried to dress as comfortably as possible, but that more often than not leads to way to many things that I have to carry when I get too hot. It was 2 degrees Celsius during my lunchtimey run today, and I just accepted that it was going to be cold, and I'll warm up once I get back. 30 minutes of coldness isn't the worst thing in the world.

My Achilles are still very much an issue... but my calves and the soles of my feet seemed to have calmed down. I'm hoping that by being far more disciplined with my stretches , and adding some calf raises into my nightly stretch routine, I can sort out my Achilles.

Smashed my hill sprints today... my endurance might be the best it's been ever. By 'smashed' I mean I still couldn't get to the top of the driveway in one burst... but I'm also not dying at the end of each sprint. Still room for improvement... but the improvement so far has been awesome. I'm really excited.

My elbow is still super mega struggle town... but it's the smallest possible slightly bit better... so that's exciting. It's been 8 months since I trained properly, so I'm ready! I'm worried my elbow still has a few months to go... but I've also accepted that it'll be ready when it's ready.

Anyway, hope everyone is smashing their training! Go get it!
