Rookie Mistake (Read 489 times)

    So, Tuesday AM I went out for about a 5 mile BF run through my asphalt neighborhood.  Felt really good, too - no problems.  Then, nearing the end of the run I decided to see how it would feel to run fairly fast - did 4 or 5 fifty meter sprint/jogs with no apparent  problem.  But after I got home I realized I had bruised the bottoms of both feet, I guess from the extra force of running faster than my usual BF jog.  Too much too soon!  They are still sore as heck today and I might take tomorrow off too.  Ugh!!!!  Be careful out there! 

     

    MTA:  So I think the way I'll handle this is to start with 1 stride each time and build slowly from there...

    "I can do 440 in 220"    Half Fanatic #846    "90% of running is half mental"    If I collapse, please pause my Garmin

     

      I would say that strides are ok in the beggining- but keep it to some soft, firm and level grass.
      The right path is my path.
