And then there is running…

You can’t be blamed for thinking I have given up on running. Let me assure you. I have not! The Olympics were just so much more fun to talk about.

Well, I did actually take a break after the British 10k. I sustained a back injury after the race and took a running break. I even went to see a physio therapist and he finally cleared me for running again last week.

I can’t say I didn’t workout during the Olympics. I walked miles and miles. I wish I had used my NIKE GPS to log the miles. My leg muscles are still going strong. 🙂

I started on short runs this week 2x 20 minute runs and a 3-mile run. I am going to add another 3-4 mile run tomorrow. I have a half marathon coming up in October. I think it’s looking good.

However, I do want to change my workout routine a little and run fewer miles every week and spend more time on strength and speed training. Does anyone have some good tips here?

Today will be another walking day. Off to find more of my now beloved Wenlocks and Mandevilles. I found probably half of the 83 around. It’s time to look out for the other half.

These two inflatable Wenlock & Mandeville outside St Paul’s Cathedral don’t quite belong to the series, but isn’t this a pretty picture?

  1. Oh – and LOVING the Wenlocks and Mandevilles!

  2. I’m finding that biking is an excellent addition to my training – even though I logged many more miles this week than last, and had the long bike ride, I did a 5K today and was 15 seconds per mile faster!
