Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years. 

February Running Update

Super Slo-Mo Clouds
I thought I'd post how my running is going. Though technically the end of the month is tomorrow, I won't be running as I like to get in a day of rest between runs. Today was an 8 miler as I start getting ready to move from 7 to 8 mile runs over the next couple weeks. As you can see below, for a month with 3 less days than the one before it, I did pretty good in February.

My Runtastic Running Stats
The only bad news that isn't immediately apparent in these stats is that I've gotten slower on my average mile times. I'm not that concerned with it as I know I've had some days where the calves are hurting more than usual and January was just 7 mile runs whereas February saw me adding some 8 and 9 mile runs here and there.
