Runs and workouts, Tuesday October 16, 2012

I decided to try running today, so laced up the flats and ran 3 miles on the railtrail.  Splits were 10:37, 10:03 and 9:46.  My foot was sore from the start, but the goal was to run without aggravating what's already sore and I think I accomplished that.  I stretched afterwards, then iced my foot.

 

Later in the day I rode 5 miles on the mtn bike in 23:53. 

 

Tomorrow will be the test, if I haven't made things worse by running, I'll probably try for 2 days in a row and see where it leads...





Enjoy life, this ain't a rehearsal...

    Rich,  sounds like it was a "good" run.  One thing I'm going to say is be very careful.  If you can, I would avoid Ibuprofen and any other NSAIDs, the most recent studies I've read conclude they retard the healing process.  They help you function, but in the long run you're better off not taking them. 

     

    6 miles today in 53:10 today it was Sunny and felt HOT (~77F), was completely drenched when I got back to the office.

    No run for me today.  Played golf and ended up riding a cart as my friend couldn't walk. Feel like a freeloader today, as I don't like missing days without some exercise.

     

    Looking forward to a 6 miler tomorrow.

     

    Good run Ray, and feel free to send some of that heat to MN! 

     

    I think your approach is sound Rich, trying to run a little bit. Just try to avoid pushing it too quickly, as I think the benefits can turn in to detriments pretty easily.  Runners are not always known for prudence, present compant excepted, of course.  :)
