First off, soleus is doing well. So that's good.
It's been an interesting last 8 days for me. A week ago, two goats came after me during my long run. When I saw them out of the corner of my eye I thought they were dogs. It's been a while since I've been chased by goats (yes, it has happened before), so maybe such an experience was overdue. I was a little worried about the billy headbutting me, but I think the goats were just excited to go on a run with me. They were noisy and the biggest problem was that I spent half a mile of my run laughing before I dropped them. For the record, off the top of my head I can remember being chased on runs by dogs, turkeys, goats, cattle and elk. And I think maybe a pig once.
Today I had a goat free long run. In fact, there were no close calls with animals of any kind. Until the drive home, when I almost ran over a deer. I do not ever remember ever being chased by deer during a run.
I am far more excited about this next week of training than my legs are. That said, my legs should come around. I did do a long run earlier today, after all.
