Snuck away

I snuck away for a few days from this here blog. lol.. I'm back, fret not.

To recap, on Tuesday, I went for a run, and I got 2.9 miles in. It was probably the most humid run I've had since last summer. Wow. It wasn't particularly hot, just humid.

Wednesday was a rest day (legitimate!) and I went out to the local ballpark. It was an absolutely perfect night to take in a baseball game. There's really not a bad seat in the place (cliche, I know), but we upgraded (unofficially) our already really good seats just a bit and sat near a couple other people we knew for a view like this:



(Does this count for Foto Friday?)

Like I said, a beautiful night for it. If I could do that every night, I probably would.

Thursday I had severe motivational issues and wound up taking the day off from work, after not a lot of arm twisting from my wife. It was a quiet day around the house, but I did go for a run, and finished a whole 5K. I felt no knee/ITB issues during this, nor do I feel any after-effects today.

My ITB feels pretty solid right now. I'm going to keep the Galloway thing going, and try to keep all my runs around 3 miles for the next week. After that, we'll slowly increase the mileage and see what happens.


Anyone have any plans for the weekend? I'm not really sure what all is going on, but it's the weekend, and that makes it great, no matter what.

Keep on rockin', everyone!

I really enjoy taking days off from work to just hang and do nothing. However, I always feel guilty if they aren't planned.

You've go the right idea. Building up mileage very slowly and not running any fast runs initially is the best way to get back to running strong. Once you have a good, solid base, then you can do some faster runs keeping your mileage the same. I started from zero this last time and now I'm running 35+ miles per week and doing speed work and feeling no pain at all. It can be done!

Glad to hear the ITB is communicating.

Those look like fantastic seats for a ball game! I usually have to buy tickets like that from the "looking for tickets" guy outside the stadium...
