May began “seriously” getting back into running. As I’ve mentioned in a few previous training logs, my goal for the foreseeable future is to build a base. I’ve run my PRs when I’ve run anywhere between 70-80 miles per week with speed work. While that’s not in the immediate future, I will hopefully build back there.
Another week of running down and for the most park, I felt fine, just tired. As I’ve mentioned, eventually I’m going to stop blogging about my calcaneus stress fracture and recovery. Truthfully, I worry (for no reason), when I stop blogging about it, I’ll jynx it and it will come back. Which I fully realize is an irrational thought.
Another week has gone. In two weeks, I’ll have run for as long as I rested. As time keeps ticking on and my miles increase, my foot feels fine.
How has it been eight weeks? As I probably continue to say…time is going both slow and fast. I’m slowly adding mileage. Once I’m “in the clear” of an injury (which will probably be about 6 more weeks), I’ll stop blogging about training. I’ve moved to Strava because it’s just easier.
As I continue the “injury comeback”, so far so good. I’ve mentioned, this is the first stress fracture I’ve come back from that hasn’t had residual pain when beginning to run again. Usually when I come back from a stress fracture nothing feels great. I have small aches and pains from soft tissue.
