I have not been a good blogger lately.
I feel disconnected.
I don't like it.
I read blogs and I feel like I am out of the circle...everyone is running and I am falling behind....
Poor me...ok enough of that.
I am on week 3 of the running diet.
So now I do 30 minutes...2 min walk- 2 min run.
As far as knee pain goes...it is much better. It is not zero pain all the time but most of the time for sure. I have developed painful calluses. They are on the ball of the foot where the pinky toe is. I think it is because of the my orthotics...not sure. The Top PT said I needed shoes with a bigger toe box. He tried to convince me to get some New Balance shoes. I am not sold on changing shoes. Not even a little. Takes time to find the one. I think I have the one. Maybe I could try 0.5 size bigger...I run in Brooks Ghost. Right now I have a pair of 4 and 5. The 6 are already in the store but I have not tried them on yet so I don't know if the toe box is different..sure hope it is not narrower.. that would be a problem.
So the running "comeback"...that is a major wake up call or what I like to call humility 101. So the fitness is GONE.
All of it.
I am starting over.
It is hard.
When I started the 2 minutes intervals I could feel it. Not my legs the problems...that is fine..but the cardio....wow...I suck.
Lots of work to do before I can go back to where I was.
It is so frustrating. If you have had an injury...you know.
Are you running a 4th of July race?
I signed up for a 5K.
No I have not lost my mind.
I signed up with my kids.
It will be their first 5K and they cannot run this distance so we will run/walk.
I will start them on 2:1 intervals for the first half and then we will see if they can do 2:2
This will be fun!
I have ran that race twice before and it is not a very serious race...they time it with a stop watch! So it is more for fun and to help the local cross country youth club.
Happy 4th to everyone!
A note regarding Google reader's death...I am still following all your blogs on bloglovin. It works great. You can find me there as well!!
