John's Running and Living

running update

with one comment running comeback has been coming along well. After a hard time with a very sore knee from crowned roads in January, a month off to heal, then back walking, I managed five weeks in a row over forty miles per week. Then I had a fabulous session, clipping along repeats, that made me feel I’d be racing again soon. My goal has been to complete a half marathon in the fall. Alas, my left foot was very sore at the end of the session, caused by shoes with a rigid flange that pressed in my achilles with each step.

Now I’m building back up again, running three miles each morning and ready to do more.

  1. I struggle to control my eating when I increase my mileage, too. I just get so hungry!
