Ran to Alum Creek, across the dam to the East side, and back home a slightly different route.  Some freezing rain fell last night so the roads were a bit slick.  8:14 pace overall with warm up and cool down.

Feeling some nerve pain on the inside of my left heel in certain positions. I wonder what triggered it and how to get rid of it?

8:43 average pace. A little slower due to slick freezing rain that fell last night.

PM - My son, Peter ran 37 laps around the main floor of the house, weaving through the family room, around the kitchen table, along the entry way, and along side of the train table in the play room. I measured the course with my wheel--113 ft 10 in...a total of about 0.8 miles. Not bad for the little man. He just wanted to keep going...no pressure from dad. I think I'll have an awesome running buddy in a few years.
