I went for a run today. That shouldn’t be unusual. Unfortunately, it is.
I’ve been having some trouble with my feet recently, feeling a lot like some kind of tendon strain. Even when I walk, they just don’t feel right and I think a lot of it is to do with footwear.
Anyway, I’m running a 5k next month with Jog Blog and Travelling Hopefully. Although only a little 5k, I really need to get my feet back feeling strong so I can actually do it. I know I’m not going to run a PB, so my aim is to complete it with no pain so that I can then start focusing on marathon training again.
Today, I ran a rather pitiful 1.2km, or 0.75 miles. Pitiful I know, but I’m wanting to build up very slowly to save my feet the pain. I ran in my Puma Faas today and luckily didn’t feel any discomfort, so I’m sure I could have carried on. If they still feel ok later, I will go out and do a mile tomorrow. In a couple of weeks time, I’ll start introducing speed work again. 1.2 km was run in 6.44. It’s not great. Then again, I guess it isn’t too awful either.
Someone give me a pep talk, I’m feeling a bit depressed about the exercise front at the moment!
