Three to four days, fifteen to twenty miles a week. Every step a gift.
Gradually introducing additional stress, tiny doses does it for now. I closed out the last quarter of this mornings 10K in 1:42. Felt like I was cruising again.
While everyone else is enjoying the fruits of their Boston/Lincoln training cycles I’m just getting started. The joy of running never greater. Still going to have the knee looked at but I’ll be in shape for whatever is beyond that bend.
Tension hangs over the marathoning community like so much haze from the fires in Kansas. Keeping the hosses lathered without bolting, that’s the trick.
I’ll do a special on the Boston Marathon tomorrow, hope you’ll check in.
