I ran last night. Just three laps around my local park, each lap roughly one klick and change. I’ve been mixing it up with the strength/core training too, so after warming up with my first lap, I ran the second at two-and-a-half minute intervals interspersed with a baker’s dozen worth of push-ups in the damp grass. A short twenty-five minutes in the late evening heat had me feeling pretty beat, but not in the leg-failing, pain-cramping sort of way I was dreading. Hopefully this equates to the start of a slow rebuilding and not a too-soon trigger for a more epic collapse. The trick, I figure, is to keep the endurance and core strength building while not re-straining my overworked piriformis muscles in the process. Day one: so far, so good?
