A Dance with Monkeys
I'm running somewhere tomorrow. It's going to be beautiful. I can't wait.
Trent, do you think that if I exercise in ways that doesn't make it hurt I'll be okay in terms of not aggravating anything any further? I'm getting really bored...
vincentfrijole, yes, you're right that it would be a BAD idea to increase both - and I didn't - I kept the milage the same when adding a day. Perhaps I started back in going up in milage too soon, but it didn't FEEL stressful at the time. It felt like a vacation to have such short runs! And yes, new shoes have already been bought! Thanks for te reminders, though! Even though I'm not running, I'm wearing those new shoes daily instead of my older shoes. My job often requires me to be standing/walking on tile floors for long periods, so good shoes is important there too!
Oops again! I just noticed sonething I DID do wrong... Back in the middle of May I jumped my milage from around 10 to almost 20 one week, then dropped down to 16 the next week and started creeping up from there... That's the same time I was changing my workouts to a much easier pace so I guess I didn't think much about it.
We runners sure are strange creatures!
gimme some sugar, baby
