Trying to stay in the moment, focusing on breathing and midfoot striking. Still a fair amount of ankle pain. Days off have to be devoted to stretching, strengthening the my groin and strengthening my ankle. It is my biggest gap.
I feel so heavy out there. I feel like each step is a 1.0 on the Richter scale. 2-3 weeks of going out every day should build up the needed capacity in my joints and ligaments. Then we’ll start opening up the distance.
I figure once I’m able to run a 5k in an hour then it might be time to buckle down and do the handstand and pullup treatment. Who knows when that might be. Jogging for 20 minutes and my heart is bawling most of the way.
I’m an unfinished sentence. I’m a work in progress. It took me 12 months to count to 12. Just need to improve on that mark.
I’m happy to be on the road again.
