2 miles on the railtrail. I walked a 1/2 mile, jogged a mile, then walked another 1/2. I didn't wear racing flats or running shoes, decided instead to wear boots. I thought they might offer more support for my injured foot and they did. Now we'll see what tomorrow brings.
D.H., after doing the P.F. stretches on youtube yesterday, I slept without the Strassburg style sock last night. Hit the floor this morning pain free.
Rich, glad you were pain-free this morning. Also glad you did your stretches.
Got back late last night from military training in Florida.
6 miles on the treadmill this afternoon, 1% incline, in 54:55 (9:09 mile pace).
More important, yesterday was Dark Colt's first track meet in two years. Two years ago as a high school freshman he made varsity on the indoor track team and hadn't raced since, due to knee pain. He isn't in shape, so yesterday's race took a lot out of him. Yesterday he ran on the junior varsity team, 1,000 meters indoors, in 3:20 (second place out of 15 runners).
Second place in a JV race as a junior, after making varsity as a freshman, is no big deal, but he is happy to be back running, and I am happy for him. His goal is to break 5:00 for the mile during this indoor track season. Problem is, he has no base. We'll see.
Dark Colt's got some speed, 1,000 meters in 3:20 calculates out to a 5:21 mile. With a little luck he may just go under 5:00 for the mile. D.H., do you remember what kind of times he was running as a Freshman? Good for him to be back running again!
It takes discipline to run on a treadmill they way you do, D.H., nice run.
And be sure to check the youtube link I posted in the last workout thread. There's a woman doing Yoga stretches for Plantar Fasciitis you need to see.
