I biked down to the Post Office to drop something off, and then linked up with Tyler for some riding around different parts of town. It was weird riding around with someone who has already been vaccinated (I haven't been yet), because for much of the ride he had a big cloud of fruit flies around him. I guess they don't tell you about that particular side effect of the vaccine. But so what? It's just fruit flies, and as long as you're not a big banana, no big deal.
Then I went up to Happy Jack to do a little running and see how the snow melting is progressing. "A little running" proved to be perfectly apt, because about 4 minutes in, I felt a pain in my lower calf--the kind that many runners have or will experience sooner or later. I tried walking for a few minutes and then a little more jogging just in case it was a pull, but the pain returned immediately and so that was that for running. I walked gently some more without any discomfort. Kind of a bummer, but better than it happened today when I was just planning an easy, non-specific running outing rather than while I was orienteering yesterday!
