Jerry, the stress fracture came about after resuming training post-knee surgery and almost immediately starting Boston training. It was a classic case of too much too soon.

That's the good news out of the bad one, I guess. I ask because my right foot is getting weak and am quite afraid as I have been running on concrete all the time.

Well Jerry I hope you don't have one. I would not wish one on my worst enemy, it was some of the worst pain and I have every had when I had them in my feet. To be honest I'm surprised that Seth was able to run at all let alone run a marathon. I mean I could hardly walk.

Thanks guys. If I could figure out how the multi-quote button works, I'd respond directly to a few posts. Maybe someone will clue me in on what I'm doing wrong.

Another easy five miler today. Same scenario as the past few runs. The knee started aching about 1.5 miles into the run, and I felt it to various degrees throughout the rest of the run. It feels fine as I sit here icing it. I'll go to PT in about an hour and see what we can do about it.

Nick, for the multiquote, just click on the multiquote button in each post you want to reply to. That button will turn a faint pink color (look closely) to indicate it has been selected. Once you've selected all of them you want to reply to, click on 'postreply' at the bottom of the page. The quotes will show up in the reply dialog box and you can insert your replies between the quotes there.

Tom, thanks for the help with using the multi-quote button (even though you called me Nick, which may very be a compliment Very Happy
Anyway, this is just a test post to see if I'm doing it right.

Good to see you're getting out there and I hope the knee stays under control.

To do the multi quote thing, just click that button on the posts you want to quote and then after you do that, just hit reply and it'll stick those quoted posts into the body of the message. Really pretty darn cool!

No, I don't have one for sure, because if I had, I would quit running and be done with it. affraid

Thanks for the good wishes guys.

Jerry...I didn't actually think there was any chance of you having a stress fracture (I hope I don't jinx you). Smile

5.4 miles on the preserve this morning. The rain wasn't a problem, but I stopped when the thunder was directly overhead.
This was an encouraging run. Still kept the pace nice and easy (about 8:35/mile). The knee ached just a little, definitely less than on previous runs.
I'm hoping this is the start of an improving trend. The plan is to continue the easy runs, while slowly building the mileage base. There no need for anything else right now.

I love when 8:35 is nice and easy. Shit that is like my LSD run. Nice job looks like someone is coming back.

Glad to hear the knee was just an irritation on the run, and that the trend is going the way you want them to.

Your due for a good "run". It is probably tempting to want to let the horses run, but you know what you are doing with keeping it easy for a while...

Again nice to read about that last run Seth. That a boy, nice and easy just keep building that mileage. The best thing you can do for yourself is what you are doing and that is doing it the right way! Before you know it you will be putting in more miles and picking up the pace some. Just can't rush it but you already know this!

Tom, John, Schuey, thanks!

5 more easy miles today for a good news/potentially slightly bad news run.
The good news is that I barely felt the knee at all, so I'm starting to to feel more confident that this really is a good trend.
The bad news is that I turned my foot about 3 miles in on a rock or root. My weekday trails aren't exactly technical, but their not as smooth as the trails on the preserve, and every now and then I'm reminded that I need to pay attention to the terrain.
I finished up the run, and I'm icing it now, but I have a feeling I'm going to feel it tomorrow.
My plan was to extend my mileage a bit tomorrow. I hope the foot is o.k.

Seth - you have a curse. I know a good witch doctor that can take it off you! It's called Hovering. You have yet to master the ART of hovering as you run. You bounce like a rabbit on those trails rather then hover like a UFO. Exclamation

Seven easy miles on the preserve. The knee situation is pretty much status quo. I feel it a bit during the run but it's not too bad, and it's definitely better than it had been. The little slip up with my foot during yesterday's run turned out to be a non-issue.
The only interesting thing to note is that my legs, specifically up near the gluts and hip flexors, have been pretty tired during the last couple of runs. Considering that my mileage has been very low, and all my paces on the easy side, I'm baffled as to why my legs would be tired. I kept it very slow today, about 8:55/mile, which is kind of LSD pace, and took an ice bath afterward, so I'll see how the legs respond.
The plan is the same though, continue with the slow mileage build up while keeping the paces very easy. If things continue to progress, I'll choose a fall marathon to put on my calendar and than work backwards to see how much more time I have for base building before I have to start thinking about real training.
