After a week off while I was in DC, I got back to training yesterday. I tweaked my running mix a bit (see below), changed the insoles in my running shoes and set off.
The weather was absolutely gorgeous – almost too warm – but the trail wasn’t too crowded as I ran. I think I finally found the right insoles for my shoes because I didn’t have any of the foot pain that I’ve been having in recent months. I wish I could say the same thing for my shins, but I guess I can’t have it all go well all the time.
Week Two doubles the length of time spent running without really increasing the walk breaks between. I mentioned last time that I felt like I could run more than the program told me to. Well, that’s no longer a problem! The first interval, I felt good running the whole time, but all the subsequent running intervals were hard. Luckily, I have two more days to help me conquer this week. I do feel better today than I did when I tried Week Two before. I’ve never made it past Week Three, so the next couple weeks will be critical to my success. Here goes nothing!
