Happy Sunday my dears!
Another successful week of running done. I'm now 3 weeks into my comeback from a tibia stress fx. Now that I am over the bad part I feel so much better. Here's a recap of how the weeks went:
Week 1: all 2 milers. I limped and fought back tears because my calves were so weak it hurt. 10 miles total
Week 2: 3, 5 and 6 milers. All very hard 8 pace runs. 27 miles total
Week 3: 4, 6, 7 and 8 milers. Most runs around 7:15 pace. Pacing is hard. I'm falling back into the low 7's too soon, I think. 43 miles total.
I still feel weak in my lower legs. I don't have the strong push off that I'm used to. But on the same token I'm kinda excited to see what happens over the next month. I've cut down the swimming to 2x45 minutes of freestyle and the bike once or twice for 20+ miles.
So all is good in the land of recovery. I don't plan on going much over 50 miles for a while. This is as good as it gets for me considering my lack of self control when I run. PS I always appreciate your running advice. Thanks guys!
Cheers and GO CANES! XOXO
