Running - On the road back from injury
Today was a big day! My first run since the Victoria Marathon. I have had the last 5 weeks off repairing an injury and focusing on functional strength building. Finally my leg was feeling strong enough for a test run. Unlike my usual self I am going to take it very easy and build up to training, hence this mornings run was only 10mins. I figured just go for a tiny run and make sure that there are no unforeseen niggling pains during the run, or afterwards. The verdict, the leg still doesn't feel 100%, but it is the best it has felt for a long time, so my goal is to run twice a week, slowly ramping up intensity and distance with the goal of a marathon mid next year and iron man in Feb 2015.
