Q: What's long and hard on guys like me?
A: The third grade.
I seem to do okay, running wise, so long as I do not run long or hard. I often get into trouble when I do, however.
As things stand (or sit), my piriformis is almost entirely gone, and my Achilles tendinitis is doing much better. But then...
1) I haven't been racing
2) I haven't been doing any speedwork
3) I haven't been running 20-milers
So I definitely have not been running long or hard.
Having said this, things may change. My mileage has begun to creep back up there, albeit kicking and screaming. And I even made it to the track a couple times in recent weeks. On the long run front, I've done some 17's and 18's recently as well.
I think I may be getting close to a decision on the Fall 50 that I've been considering. That will partially depend on any long run I'm able to do tomorrow and/or next week (which may include the Mobius 50K).
