AM: 32 Minutes Alter-G Treadmill, Core PM: 2:01 hours Recovery Ride, 38 Miles.
Without any fanfare or pressure I had my first run, or pseudo run in 4 days shy of three months. I was very nervous so opted to not talk much about it. In the end it was pretty uneventful. I did the 32 minutes at 80% body weight and at speeds ranging from 9 MPH - 10 MPH. I felt awkward and constantly worried. Clearly favoring my right leg and altering my stride to land forefoot I was all over the place. My knee didn't start hurting until 25 minutes but never really got bad. I promised myself that I'd stop if it got sore so I did. Back on the G-Trainer Monday morning and I will be trying to run as naturally as possible. It is imperative that I don't try and avoid my natural running in order to try and avoid knee pain. The pain needs to go away, bottom line.
This afternoon I met Coxy and we did an easy 2 Hour ride. Bristol bike path with some Colt state park action. It was a nice, warm ride and I felt great despite having heavy legs and sore quads. I may do one mile outside running tomorrow and I should be meeting Tom McArdle for another 2 hour ride. Maybe I can get him to start up his blog again.
The new Sunset Rubdown is getting very positive reviews and now I have to figure out how I can join Terry Shea at the gig. I have a conflict on the 11th and I need to figure out a way to be in two places at the same time!
Training is going good but running has me in a bit of a downer. My uninspiring run today leaves little to be desired. Knee is not great and I need to hit some miles to find out how bad it really is.
I can't stop listing to the the tune Idiot Heart. I am not posting any other tunes because the this tune is everything to me right now.
