Yup, that’s what I said. I had to take 29 days off from running, just as I was almost moving on to week 5 in the Christian CT5K Cool Runnings Program.
As it turns out, I don’t have week one on my mp3 player, so I had to start with week two. Thank you Lord for muscle memory!
I zoned out on the first run, but picked it right up for the rest of the program.
Random thought: why are the migrant workers working on Mid-Autumn Festival?
Ran 4 times around the track in a cool, but light drizzle. It was still really humid put. Kind of a heavy oppressive humidity. Stayed in the third lane from the center. Focused on forefoot running and leaning slightly forward from the ankles. As I was concentrating on running on the forefoot, I also had to make sure I didn’t run knock kneed or let my arms swing towards the midline. Had a few minor twinges here and there , but nothing that lasted more than a second or two.
I almost didn’t do it. I had gotten into a cycle of discouragement and disappointment due to this injury.
Consistantly, rolling a tennis ball along the length of my sole has helped tremendously in working put the kinks.
