Starting my training plan!

So I decided to work a training plan this time around, rather than just run whatever I felt like whenever I wanted.  I know that it was the treadmill that caused my injury, not the plan I was working, but I really think I’ll benefit from following a plan to build back up on my milage.  Yesterday was the first day on the plan, I had 4 scheduled.

I wanted to keep working on finishing the second Viktor sock so I can get moving on the new pattern, so I ended up knitting all day long.  I did my run last night after the sun went down, at 8:30pm.  That would have been fine, except dinner had been just a little too close to make it a comfortable run.  It ended up being a slightly unpleasant experience, but at least it was a learning one!

Had a Harry Potter marathon as I worked the sock.  It’s all good.  I like watching movies while I knit.  If only I could read as I knit, too.  That would be perfect!  I just haven’t reached that point yet, though.

I’m to the gusset now – just have that, the heel & a wee bit of leg/cuff left – I should get it finished today.  YAY!  I’m psyched about working on ‘Potions Master’.  Of course, I really need to get in mowing the lawn somewhere as well.  He he he

  1. Once you reach the end of your training plan, what’s next?

    By the way, thanks for the “add”. :-)

    Quite possibly I’ll be giving Disney another shot – that’s where I was headed when I was struck down by injury. Definitely going to get in a full marathon – thinking about Gulf Beaches Half in December, it’s right in my neighborhood!

    P.S. Came across your blog some time ago – got a chuckle out of flip flop man – I’ve run with him myself on the Trail recently. :)


  3. Ah, flip-flop man. I’ve only seen him twice in my life: once at Gulf Beaches and again at the Clearwater half. I did a double-take the first time saw him; there’s no way that a guy could be running in flip-flops! Does he always run in them?

    Good luck at Disney when you do decide to sign-up for it, and may it not be hot and humid come race day.

    I remember you leaving a comment sometime ago–maybe last year, but I never realized that you had a blog until someone clicked on the 13.1 miles link yesterday.

    Yes, he always runs in flip flops – he would run barefoot but for the damage his feet would suffer. He believes that many injuries suffered by runners today are caused by the shoes. A theory, it seems, that is no longer considered so “out there” (hence the new Nike ‘barefoot running’ shoes & the like). I came across him during the winter, running in nothing but flip flops and swimming trunks in temps of the low 40’s!

    Ah, yes, my blog – recently filled with 2 of my latest obsessions, knitting & running. If only I could sort out how to do both at the same time…. LOL!
