I tried out a new trail for my run yesterday thanks to Scott, who hung out with the girls in the middle of the day so I could enjoy some new scenery. I walked for a few minutes to warm up and then ran 10 minutes, walked 2, ran 10, walked 2, ran 10. The running portions are still at a slow, easy pace.
It was a hilly little run, but I enjoyed the variety. I need to find a trail closer to home with little rolling hills like this one had.
I am still easing back into things. This was my fifth run since my return to running.
I read a lot of different articles and information about returning to running and exercise after having a stress fracture.
These had some of the best and most useful information:
When you start running after taking eight weeks off because of a stress fracture, seeing your run history in your watch actually makes you smile when the last run before taking time off was April 21. If you're going to have a "last run," it might as well be the Boston Marathon.
Do you keep track of all your runs? I upload all mine to Garmin Connect, and I also write them down in my running calendar.
What are your plans this weekend, running and otherwise?
