This week I took my first steps toward getting back on track for the Toronto Waterfront Marathon which is just over two weeks away from now. After having to be content with just being able to ride a bike last week this week I was able to get back to running.
Following a five minute run on a treadmill at my physio appointment Wednesday morning I received the green light to go for an easy run outside. My first run since the injury was a 10 minute effort yesterday. Today I was able to follow that up with a 20 minute effort. The key to both runs is that my stride felt fine and I did not feel any pain afterward.
The plan for tomorrow is to go for a 30 minute run. If that goes well I will go for a 35-40 minute run Sunday. For now I will just focus on time. I figure I can start worrying about increasing the pace next week. I’m just pleased to be able to get back to running and be able to get myself back on track to run the marathon.
How did your training go this week?
