On the mend

by on Aug.12, 2012, under Training Runs

I continue to get better, albeit slowly.  I only ran a couple of times last week as I was in New York and didn’t get out and run like I should have.  But those runs felt good.  I don’t have much speed yet but that’s ok.  It’s nice to feel some strength in the legs, to be able to push off and not to feel like I’m compensating for injury.  Only ran 12 miles this week but with a lot of traveling that’s just how it goes.

Started today off with a 7.25 mile run with a friend.  Got some good hills in and ran along the golf course as the sun came up.  Then watched the Olympic marathon with a group of running friends.  Those runners look so smooth as they run their sub-5 minute mile pace.  The USA had 3 runners in it, one finished 4th and the other two DNF’d.  It brought back great memories of the Olympic time trials in Houston this year.

Signed up for a triathlon on September 5th so I will start some swimming and biking to help with my recovery.  I have a good feeling about the Fall racing season coming up.
