4.6 miles this morning. It was 55* with mist so it took a while to warm up.
How many miles did you run today? - Page 754
4.5 yesterday on the trails. I had my mind on something else and realized I had run all the hills and kept my downhills in check instead of bombing down them. Thinking of trying the bigger loop in the park to see if I can do a whole lap without walking. It is ~10.25 miles with ~1700 ft. gain and people try to set a quick time on it to test their fitness.
Long time, no post...
Back at the end of last year, I discovered I had a stress fracture in the arch of my right foot, and then later another in my left foot. And then my left knee ligaments, which have always been a problem since I used to play football (soccer to most of you...), started acting up again.
Short version: I stopped running for 4 months. At first it was to rest and recover, but then my wife and son were away in Japan for two months and it was winter and I was a bit depressed, and it took me ages to get out of the not-running phase.
I've been cycling as normal most of this time, but this weekend I finally got out for my first proper runs since December. a 6.5k and a slightly over-ambitious 14.5k. Anyway, my knee is still knackered and that's not ever going to change, but everything else felt fine. However, I've put on about 3kg in the last few months, and so I'm far from racing shape and most of my previous plans for this year (local race series, half-ironman and marathons) will have to be put on hold while I get fit again. So the rest of this year is going to be dedicated to that. And then I'll think about my goals for next year.
Anyway, it's good to be getting out again.
Attaboy... Good luck!
