Dizzy's and Back Again
Today was a walk to Dissmore's for cottage cheese and peanuts -- the B Street route, with a big elevation change both ways (naturally). I didn't push for a good time, primarily because I have a mild case of shin splints (from the standing desk? or...?) but still did about 17:30 downhill and about 20:30 uphill. Notably, the shin splints felt worse on the downhill, and almost disappeared on the uphill, suggesting that they are related to extension and not flexion of the ankle. Perhaps I tried too hard to push off with the toes on my Olympia walk on Wednesday.
