Still running.....

It has now been just over 2 weeks and the running is still going good, although slow and short. I am still only able to go about 1 mile at a time before my shoulder starts to hurt. I have dropped the time a bit, but I am not trying to hard at this time.

So far I have only done the running on the treadmill, it has been kind of a safety net about being able to stop if it starts hurting. I have found so far that I have been fine for the first mile so I will probably take my runs back out on the road in the next week.

I have once again this year missed some key races that I missed last year. Last year at this time I was injured with a pulled groin muscle and couldn't run much. I missed the US 10k Classic just this past week and will be missing the Buckhead Sizzler later this month. I am OK with this and am not trying to push myself back to a racing point yet. I will have plenty of opportunities later in the year.

Till next time....

  1. Starting back up on the treadmill is a good call I think. I did the same thing rehabbing from a knee injury. The races will always be there I'm sure!

  4. Thanks all for stopping by and commenting. Had a rough, busy weekend with my shoulder hurting a bit more than normal. Taking this morning off, will be hitting it again tomorrow.

    Thanks for the confidence building!

  5. Remember, the most important thing is the shoulder... let that heal, and the running will come back in time.
