Today is Day 1 of Juneathon, and never the slouch, when my alarm went off at 5:30am, I jumped right out of bed, laced up, did some dynamic stretches and off I went!
Well, not exactly. It took me til nearly 6am to get out of bed, but then I did lace up, stretch dynamically, and go off.
(those are my feet, just prior to stretching)
I think the challenge for me for Juneathon will be NOT running for 30 days. I really want to ease back into my mileage so that I don’t re-injury my heel (or any other part of my body), so even though the Old Port Half Marathon is coming up much more quickly than I’d like, I’m holding myself to 3x week for the next 2-3 weeks, then up to 4x a week until the half. Just prior to my injury I was running 5x (sometimes 6x) week, and obviously, that’s a schedule that these old(ish) bones just can’t take.
That being said, there’s a local 10k this Sunday, and since my long run is supposed to be 6 miles, I may just have to sign up. . .
