I just ran two days in a row! (Read 1047 times)

    I know running two days in a row isn't saying much, but you have to celebrate the small victories too.

     

    My knees aren't the best and I am trying to prevent tendonitis and or runner's knee.  It struck last fall and I am determined to get my miles up without knee problems.  I started at 6 miles a week and I am due for 16 this week.  Each week I have gone up by one mile.  Also, I started taking MSM with Gluclosamine. 

     

    I want to make it to 25 miles a week before the middle of August because I just got the head CC coaching job at the school I teach at.  It would be nice to be able to run with the varsity pain free.  You gotta walk the walk if your gonna talk the talk I guess.

      Hey, progress is progress.

       

      Just out of curiousity, is there a reason for running everything at a sub-8 minute pace?

        I may be wrong, but I think you re erring on the side of ______? (somebody help me).

          Well - Since I'm not running quantity, I figure it should at least be quality. 

           

          I used to be a decent D3 collegiate runner and in my mind I am still hanging onto those days.

            hah, the legs still remember what to do even if the knees aren't as forgiving Big grin

             

            Last week I had little time to run, so when I did I was picking up the pace every time.  By the weekend my legs were begging me to stop.

              Quality? Are you sure? Do you risk re-injury in doing so? Prolly.

               

              Me, I'd go easy for 4-6 weeks, gradially rebuilding mileage totals from your past year(s).  Then...

                  This is off topic, but how do you take someone elses quote and get that fancy box around it?

                   

                  Oh - And I'm afraid to go after my past mileage totals because back then I was single.  Now I have a wife and three children under the age of four.
