Return to Running

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

I am counting today as my "official" return to running. Since I do pretty much all of my running alone, I was anxious to see how I did.

I only managed 3k today, and it took me 40:01 but I don't care. I was out there. At the 25:00 mark, I did notice some pulling/tightness along the back of my heel. So I decided to walk the rest of the way home. I probably could have pushed myself to run more, but I am not looking to hurt myself and I need my leg/foot to be in good shape for when I start my new job. :)

    Getting into running should be a gradual progress. I am a Chi Runner, and this is a practice like yoga and Tai Chi.

    Good for you, have to start somewhere and that sounds like a good start. Wise not to push yourself, be sure to warm up before running and then stretch after. Toe lifts are good to warm up your heel/back of your leg.

    Hey Kat!
Go YOU for returning to running! I love my run/walks...
Have you ever heard of the Galloway method for running? It's intervals of walking/running... it makes it more enjoyable and the progress is faster at least it is for me... Let me know... if you want I can send you the little plan to progressively walk/jog until you run straight for 30 mins...

  Don't forget to stretch your heell, calf and achilles really well after your run and/or walk.
