This week completes six weeks of not running and six weeks out. Twelve weeks ago, on March 1, I got my calcaneus stress fracture. In the coming weeks, life completely changed but not because of my broken foot. Sometimes it felt trivial to talk about a broken foot when the world was a mess. Honestly, it’s gone by fast. I haven’t seen some friends since I had a broken foot and it feels as though March, April, and most of May have gone by quickly.
The New Balance Fuelcell TC is a shoe I’ve wanted to try since it first came out.
The New Balance Fuelcell TC is designed to be the carbon plated New Balance shoe. Unlike the New Balance 5280, which is designed for racing the mile, the New Balance Fuelcell TC is designed for training and racing a marathon. But how would it compare?
Many people have asked: “how do you return to running after injury.”
The Short Answer: Slow and steady.
But you didn’t come here for the short answer.
As most readers know, Hoka is one of my favorite running shoe brands out there. Since 2015, I’ve had at least one Hoka shoe in my running rotation, if not more. Hoka has had clothing on their website for a while now. A couple of years ago, they partnered with both rabbit and Oiselle to make various “Hoka branded” logo clothing.
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.
