The healing continues

by on Aug.26, 2012, under Training Runs

So nice to be able to run again.  The frustration of not being able to run fast quickly goes away when I realize I am running with bounce, my knee does not hurt, I can Lengthen (my spine), Level (my pelvis) and Lift (my legs behind me).  Yes, Lengthen, Level and Lift is my running mantra when I am strong and focusing on form.  This along with good breathing, relaxing and holding my shoulders up and moving my arms is what has brought me my best race times.  I can do this again.

Was out of town this week but got a good 10 miler in on Wednesday and 14.1 miles today on the Soaring Wings Half Marathon course.  Started out with Tim and Bruce but just couldn’t hang with them even though they waited for me twice.  I told them to go on.  I don’t like holding people up.  I got into a good rhythm and knocked out the miles.  Got a bit tired at the end (although I was doing some hills at the end) as is evident in the Garmin report.  I believe it is harder to run slower as you spend more time on the ground and pound more.

Looking for a good running week, with a few doses of swimming and biking as I have a triathlon coming up a week from Saturday.  All of this is going to come together to be the magic solution to get me to the starting line for Chicago.
