This week I took it easy again. My ankle and knee hurt through Tuesday, and I'd rather be lazy now than injured for months. I still haven't forgotten the nagging calf pain that I ran through until it got suddenly sharp- and prevented me from running for months (in 2009). So, I gave myself an out.
The fact that I was able to run three days in a row without significant pain is a good sign. I hope to get back into it next week. Then, also on my new workout program John is supposed to start me on. We'll see how that goes.
Thursday: 3 in the morning outside in the cold with John
Friday: 4 in the afternoon outside
Saturday: 7 on the Parkway, easy
Sunday: Christmas+travel=not running
Miles this week: 14
Miles in 2011: 1024
Maybe I can do 26 this week to get to 1050 by the end of the year. I doubt it, but a girl can hope.
