Running again, starting over

Well I finally got out for a run today, my first real run since June 8th. I decided upfront to only do the 4-mile loop and work on running dynamics, heal lift, kick etc. rather than go for speed. Thats my excuse and I'm sticking to it. I felt OK most of the way around, but coming back up South 1st was a struggle.

My edger injury was fine, its not pretty to look at, since a couple of people asked. here is a picture, don't click if you are easily upset by cuts etc. Yes the yellow is bruising and yes its healing well. Should be ok for a swim by Tuesday if I keep it clean and dry.

Net, Net for the run, 4.06 miles in 38:24. Slower than late December when I started back running for this year. Oh well.

NEXT UP: 86-mile bike out to New Braunfels on Sunday to watch the start and first finishers in the Rogue Womens Tri. Will run afterwards.

That's awesome that you commented on my Blog! I used Athlinks to get my prior race information, and I think that was the latest info I had - did you also do an IM in 2002? Anyway - recover well, and look forward to seeing you in Woodlands - follow along and give Myles some guff too!
