First Run Since Stone Cat 50

Today I went for my first run since my finish at the Stone Cat 50 mile trail race on Saturday. It was just an easy four mile jog on my usual lunch time route. All my moving parts seemed to be in good working order so I will slowly get back to a normal training schedule over the next 2-3 weeks. The damage I incurred from running 50 miles was minor. The tightness in my legs and hip flexor is gone. I had slight knee pain after the race but that went away after a few days of icing. The plantar fascia in both of my feet is still sore and I suspect it will remain that way for another week or two. I will continue to ice them daily. And speaking of icing, I will soon post a review of an innovative new product I've been using designed specifically for icing your knee. It works great and I want to tell you about it. Stay tuned.

  1. That's funny, I also went out for a run today (I was going crazy with impatience). I went for five miles. The cool thing was that I went at an easy pace and didn't look at my watch. Turns out I ran a 10:25 and it felt like a 12:00 used to. I think it is thanks to you and the gang for pushing me into speedwork without me even knowing it. Thanks!

  2. LOL, I broke down and went out for a 4 miler today too :) Felt pretty good as well! Glad you are bouncing back well! :)

  3. Too funny, I guess we just don't know how to take it easy.

  4. And I am sure you'll be able to totally smoke me at the Fells in December! :-)
