Stop The Press - Injured Runner Runs Again!
I was able to walk yesterday without pain which was a great sign that I hadn't overdone it. I took a rest day yesterday. And then today I walked a half mile, ran a mile at 10 minute pace and walked another half mile. So that's 2 miles for today.
I didn't want to do the walk/run thing for my recovery plan, but after talking it over with my trainer, I decided to heed her advice and follow her plan. And I'm glad that I did. Today I wanted to keep running when my 1 mile was up, but I followed the plan; switched it to a walk, and I believe this will be the best way to get me back to where I want to be without re-injury. Of course I still have to listen to my body. If something hurts I need to stop. But it sure feels good to get on the treadmill again.
I haven't tried an outside walk/run yet. I wanted to see how my calf responds to softer surfaces first. My treadmill has the flex-deck, and it's usually easier on my legs. But I do plan to get outside this upcoming week.
All smiles here :)
Lil Man and I celebrated with some fro yo.
