Here is my mileage over the past three weeks:
March 11-17 32 miles- highlight was running my fastest 8 mile route in a couple months by about one minute- so that is also my fastest time post surgery
March 18-24 37 miles- highlight was 13 mile run- only the 2nd time going that far outdoors post surgery
March 25-31 27 miles- highlight- two 8 milers within seconds of my fastest time 2 weeks ago
Total miles January 97 miles
Total miles February 194 miles
Total miles March 139 milestotal miles 2013 430 miles
I am not doing as much as I did in February, but I am trying to run at a faster pace. My muscles really tighten up after faster runs as my hips go through a larger range of motion, and I am finding it takes a day or two for my muscles and joints to calm down so I can run again with a good stride. I am also finding that my hips and body have really gotten off balance lately. I am now taking some time off until I can get it sorted out as running in an imbalanced fashion can only lead to problems. It is a minor setback, that I do want to bully my way through. I have been finding that I am starting to either feel fit for my runs (running faster and farther) but a bit off with my balance and stride or really forcing a run (usually the day after running hard).
