The build up

For the past month I’ve slowly been building up my running, I’ve not managed beyond two miles but they have all been pain free, a good sign!

I’ve mostly just been doing treadmill work and spending more time working on the foam roller *cries*, improving my hamstring strength and I’ve also start lifting weights, though being the shy person I am I’ll only do weights when it’s quiet! I’ve done a couple of road runs while on on holiday in Cornwall and they felt ok, I just feel very slow at the moment but I’m glad I’m doing something.

I’ve been saving up over the past couple if months and finally this weekend I had enough to pick up the Garmin Forerunner 220. I liked the 10 but it was pain having to sync runs on a PC, the fact I can do it all through my phone is a big plus. I’ll write a review in a couple of weeks once I’ve had more time to use it.

Goals for September

I’ve run 11 miles (17.6 km) in the past two months, this month I’m hoping to double that, but only time will tell!

What are your running goals this month?

  1. I can’t wait to be able to don my trail shoes and get out in the forest but my poor foot keeps swelling up like a balloon since my toe fusion operation. Haven’t been out running for probably near on three months now :-(!

  2. I know how you feel, I’m constantly worried about another injury and the slightest niggle send me Into a complete panic! Hope things improve for you soon!
