Knock on wood – I think I am there!
No pain, no crepitus. My left AT feels great….
Three runs last week – two 5 milers, and a 7 mile trail run. It felt SO GOOD to be back on Buttermilk & North Bank….right where this mama belongs!
I’ve supplemented the running with 45-minute elliptical sessions. Also did some monster side-lunges and leg work this week in an effort to build muscle.
The plan going forward is more of the same. Conservative increases in mileage, strength work 2-3 times a week. Yoga and elliptical/pre-core. I plan to run the Carytown 10K this week as a final salute to fast running before hunkering down and focusing on endurance for the rest of the summer. My JFK application went in the mail yesterday…if all goes as planned I will be running my first 50 this coming November.
Run on, mamas!
