April 2, 2014 – Injury recovery update

I have been very encouraged by the progress I have been making.  I started running 1 mile  increments every other day or so in March a few times a week in the minimalist shoes.  It is a gradual slow process, but at least there is progress.

I just started running 2 miles at a time, and today I ran 2.1 miles, the longest run since February 2, without any pain.   I am still avoiding hills as much as I can, especially going downhill.

On Saturday, April 5, I will attempt a 5K.  Not fast, no running on hills….my goal is to complete it pain free….no time limits set upon myself.  I will report on how that goes.
