Thanks!  My current, and also my former, chiropractors are applied kinesiologists (http://www.appliedkinesiology.com/ - though the page is loading really oddly for me), and I was unaware of Active Release Techniques.  I'll read up on it.

5.21 miles this morning.  37F this morning.  Flows, injinijis, running long sleeve shirt, running vest, tights, hat and gloves.  My feet were a little colder than last time, I think one of my pairs of injinjis are not really the "performance" version despite the fact that that is all I bought - they seem more cottony.  It's the pair I wore this morning and I believe it's the reason I felt the cold verse my last run (also 37F).

Anyways, great run.  No real post run discomfort.  Nothing in the ankles - hoping I'm past that now.  That lower calf stretch really does the trick.  Oh, and so does rolling the balls under your feet, ahhh Smiley  I'm thinking about going out again tomorrow.  It's suppose to be raining and cold.

I just got back from a 4.8 km run and the temperature is about 4C (39F).
Ran in Classics with socks, and some other stuff too.

How are your toes feeling afterwards?
Mine are usually a little numb and cold, it's not like their going white they still have a healthy color.
I've always been the type to go cold in my toes and fingers though.

Ran in 45F (7C) drizzle this morning, and walked for 45 minutes in 50F drips yesterday.  I definitely noticed the cold more while walking, though part of that may also have been that I was wearing the thin Feelmax Sports liners in my Sprints instead of the thicker ToeToes I wore today. 

One thing that I appreciate is that although my toes definitely got wet (stupid wet leaves and hidden puddles!) they didn't have that awful "squish" feeling you get in more padded shoes. 

I figure as long as my face is okay with the temps, my feet can suck it up and deal.  When it's time for the scarf and balaclava, I'll have to think about running indoors.   Cry

Just got in from a great 15K run here in Vancouver. It's 11C, damp, and cloudy. Ran in shorts, a long-sleeve shirt, my favourite old Buff bandana thingie (http://www.buffcanada.com/, and my KSOs. No socks. I was a bit over-dressed, if anything. I could have gotten away with a short-sleeve shirt instead of the long-sleeved.

For today's run, I followed the Seawall all around Stanley Park. Ocean beaches, huge old trees, cloud-shrouded mountains. This is a fantastic city to run in. I'm going home on Saturday, so hope to get another long run in tomorrow.

My toes were fine.  Rereading my post, I should not have said "colder than last time".  It was more like I felt some cold in my feet this time, whereas last time my feet (and toes) were comfortable warm.  I'm guessing it's going to be a matter of keeping the feet dry.

ugh...no run for me today - taking the day off.  but its snowing here in NJ and 37 degrees at lunchtime today when I was out!  Cry  <sniff! sniff!...waaaahhhhh!>

ok..enough of that.  think i need to invest in flows for the wet/damp days.  my feet don't tend to get too cold while running - even when its in the 30's....so perhaps I will be OK in my KSO's and socks....

Nice run Kaio! 

Today I did my first run in my new KSOs(2nd KSO run - as first pair broke/didn't fit correctly).  I went 3 miles today and improved my time by six minutes from the same KSO run one month ago and on the same trail.  But best of all.. NO blisters!!!!! In fact i'm still wearing the KSOs without them begging to be taken off - although they may not smell like roses. 

Sorry for being a stat whore.  It makes training more interesting.  1st image is from Garmin Dakota 20, 2nd is from Suunto t6C heart rate monitor

Just finished a nice 8.5K tempo run. 0C and bright sunny skies. Much as I enjoyed running in Vancouver this past week, it's good to be home again!

Thanks hobbitfoot Smiley

Maps are cool  Grin  I'm going to find a route that will run (write) out my name - figure it'll make a nice sig.

The heart rate monitor thing is cool - I've not seen that before.

Your Vancouver runs really sounded great.  Welcome home.
