On Wednesday, I ran two miles and managed to be under a 10 min/mi pace. I tried the walk/run method recommended by my doctor, but it's tough on me mentally. I lose my mojo when I stop to walk, even if its for a minute. My hamstring felt great, through the run though, which is always promising!
On Thursday, I ran two miles again, still under a 10 min/mi pace. I'm happy that I retained some of my "speed" even though I've been out. My cardio capacity seems to be okay. but running is definitely not easy!
On Saturday, I only did a mile at a 9:23 pace. There were some bad thunderstorms coming and I didn't want to push my luck with my hamstring, so I ended after a mile. This brought my total mileage to 5 miles for the week.
Do you have any advice for me as I return post-injury? What is the longest you were out for an injury?
