Week one of the Runner’s World training guide that I mentioned here is now in the books. The 25 miles seemed pretty light, but I don’t want to rush things and get hurt again, so I just stuck to what they said to do. The second week is almost exactly the same, so it should be smooth-sailing for now.
The knee seems to be mostly back to normal, but the heels continue to hurt a little. I put the longer shoe laces back on the Kinvaras, as the Boston ones kept coming untied. I also tried the new lacing method Jake referred me to (see here) and it does seem to improve blood circulation. My shins were also a little sore today at the end of nine, but they are fine now.
Happy (and very thankful) to be building up the mileage chart again!Originally published by DK on July 22, 2012 at 11:20 pm
