Needed to do a long run on Sunday. Unfortunately my friend Dan was unavailable to run with me. So, I just showed up at RunningWild and see who else would go for such a distance. There was a new route, the Penn Route. Hanna R wanted to do fourteen, so I decided to try to run by her for six miles and go back. But, of course, at mile six, I decided I could go one more mile, and I did. My stress fracture has recovered 100%. Now, my left knee started hurting. It had never hurt before. I normally wear my sandals, but this time, I decided to use my Newton running shoes for the long run.
This morning I went for three miles, EZ pace. I call it my recovery run. Of course, I ran them in the sandals. I will use the sandals for every run this week, and see if I can do a long run on the sandals on Sunday.
Several ladies ran the Grandma's Marathon in Duluth last Saturday. They all qualified for Boston! Congrats to all of them.
