Starting to Run on the Road to Recovery

According to the Dr. I was free to start running again on the 1st. Stress fracture on my fibula should be sufficiently healed at this point that its safe to run again. However, I’m supposed to take it s-l-o-w-l-y. How slow is slow enough?

During the time I was not allowed to run, I picked up a membership at the Y, and have been spending time in the pool. Low impact, and has allowed me to maintain some level of cardio fitness. As the 1st approached, I also added some biking into the mix. Now, that I’ve added running back, I’m well on my way to triathlon training.

Figure that as I ramp up the running (both intensity and distance) will continue to include cross-training as part of my program. Goal continues to be the powderface42 – which is now pretty much 4 months away. Yikes!
