Injury Log Week 11: Trucking Along

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.

Injury Week 8: More Healthy Running…Am I Injury Free Yet?

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.
