I’m getting there.
A few short months ago I was barely able to finish a 5k, even walking half the way. A few weeks ago I ran that same 3.1 miles at a 10-minute mile pace and was damn happy about it. Then last week I tweaked my Achilles and was out of commission for a week – down from running three days a week to none.

My run this evening started off on a great note – a personal record 8:57 first mile which was primarily uphill. Considering it was a pace run (running the 5k for total time) and not a speed run (where I try to run the fastest first 1.5-2.0 miles I can) that Continue reading Damn the Achilles

More Running?

My time was Continue reading 30:48
