Blew the dust off my Garmin yesterday and went for what I hoped would be an easy 4 mile run in my brand new Newton Fate running kicks. After a blazing 12 minute mile pace I was compelled to run one more to make it a sweet 5 miles in exactly an hour. I spent the whole run concentrating on a midfoot strike. My legs were sore but I really felt great during and after the run. I plan on continuing that distance for a while, only running every other day and working on my speed. Stay tuned while I rewrite the book on second chances!!
Of note, although I do feel great I had a nice reminder this past Saturday that I had hip surgery just 3 months ago. I was throwing an apple core into the woods (for the squirrels of course). When I wound up to throw and release, the pain in my new hip was pretty intense. Guess I twisted it or something. It was fine in 30 seconds though.
