Track workout

I usually only go to the track for speed work. But, I went today with the intention of running on a softer surface to keep the wear and tear on my feet down. When I got there, I realized that I could actually run on the grass inside of the track. It seemed to work, but still made my foot a little numb.

I ran a total of 8.5 laps (which was about 2 miles since I was running on the inside of the track). Overall, running on the track is kinda boring. But, I've run so seldom lately, it didn't bother me at all.

Run recap- 2 miles, 17:00, 8:30 pace

How is that 'not running' working out? Seems to hardly be affecting your running at all. :)

Just kidding, I am no one to talk.

Yeah... It's dumb. I can't handle not running. I do think I'm being overly cautious by not running at all. But, I have no idea really. I'll keep it to 2 miles, 3 times a week and see how that goes. I have a dr's appointment on Thursday. Hopefully some questions are answered by then.

When I needed to restrict my running, I needed to actually write down what I was going to do when I got to the gym. I love to run and would do it more than twice each week if I didn't write down exactly what I planned on doing each week. Of course, plans are made to change ...

You're right... That's bit me a couple times already. I don't know what I want to do when I get to the gym so I just lean on old "tried and true".
