Today’s run was a late-night effort through the streets of Bellevue in my Saucony Hattori shoes. Even though I got a really late start, it turned out to be one of the best runs since I started back, and was also the final run/walk in “Step 3” of the “Return to Running” program:
4 min run / 2 min walk x 4 5 min run / 2 min walk x 4 10 min run / 1 min walk x 3
- 15 min run / 1 min walk x 3
- 20 min run
- 25 min run
- 30 min run
Looking back on the 10 days I’ve completed since my return, I guess I should be pretty pleased. Sometimes it mentally feels like I’m starting over, but I have to remind myself that so far I’ve been pain free, and I also got in almost 25-miles this week.
Tomorrow will be a running rest day, and then “Step 4” should begin on Tuesday.
