It´s been 10 weeks since I had a nice run. Back then I felt an injury that made me stay away from my training for the longest period so far. But this morning I grabbed my shoes and had an easy 5k run without any pain during or after.
And now I´m ready to return to my training. I have to go through some adaptation period (I´m probably really slow now!) and that´s what I´m discussing with TheEd at Time-to-Run.
With that, this blog will be update more frequently. Stay tuned!
After a small confusion at the clinic, when they forgot to schedule my phisio sessions for last week, I started this morning with the first one of five this week.
I´m feeling almost recovered, even thought of not going to the clinic but decided I wanted to get better faster. I still keep icing the area everyday (2-3 times a day) and it´s been helpful too.
I´m running 2 times plus a bike ride on Sunday. So, only 9 times since I returned from my trip. It means when I return, I´ll have a lot of work to do to get fit again.
This is the second time I´m going through a recovery season after an injury. First (in Nov/09) was my achilles. Some phisio sessions, ice and exercises for a few weeks and I was back in the game.
This time is different. I stayed 25 days without any running during my vacation. Before that, ran 4 times in 15 days. I never stayed this long without some consistent running since I started running.
Last week I ran 3 easy 5k-6k runs, Tue, Thur and Sun, and was also taking anti inflammatories prescribed by my orto.
This week I intend to run 3 times again (Tue, Thur and Sat) and cycling on Sunday. Now, without the pills effect, I´ll have a better idea on how´s my recovery going. So far, while walking, I don´t even remember that my left anterior tibial tendon is/was injured.
Let´s hope for the best!
