4 Miles and Back to Training!

After not working out for almost a week as directed by my Dr., I was going crazy! So yesterday after work I decided to walk two miles and monitor the pain in my back. If I felt good walking, I would try running the next day (today). The two brisk miles felt great, so before bed I set my alarm for 5:15am to get my 4-miler in before work. My alarm went off this morning, I had an espresso, laced up my shoes, and decided to run on my treadmill for more cushioning. I walked the first mile at about a 13:45-15min pace, then picked it up for the next mile and a half to about an 10-11min pace. I was feeling great! Then after those 2.5 miles, my back started to seize up where I had injured it. So I took it down to a brisk walk and alternated the last mile and a half between walking and running. I did more running than walking, and it felt so great to get back into training.
San Fran Countdown: 47 days!



  1. Yay! Just take it slowly...and the mileage will get back up there.

  2. Mags - are you doing the SF Half? Which half? We're going to have quite a group of tweeps up there!

  3. Aw, I hope your back is feeling better.
