A short 2.5 mile run

A bit of a trial to see what what happen when I ran 2.5 miles and would the pain in my heel flare up again? I really enjoyed the run as a short taster of what I am missing.

I ran the 2.5 miles in 21.18 though it was entirely pain free as I could my heel. So 2.5 was as far as I dared run in case I do any more damage. As i write this I am not limping but I can feel my heel and I probably did a little too much too soon.

When I returned from the run with my exercise craving unsatisfied I started Day 2 week 1 of training on my push ups my session included 5 sets and I did 10,12,8,8 and 23

I then did a session of sit ups or crunches five sets included 15,18,10,10 and 20

Now I have got to wait and see if there is any reaction and I how I feel tomorrow morning


  1. That's sounds like a bit of progress though - hopefully the beginning of the recovery. This situp malarky sounds painful but interesting - I'm tempted to have a go.

  2. Way to go on that run. I hope that tomorrow morning will not greet you with a hop or a limp. I took it easy last week as my right heel was bothering me in the morning. I think that 2.5 miles is a good testing ground as long as your heel was not bothering you. Best wishes on a full recovery man.

    I don't think anyone should be running until i'm fit, i'm afraid...just makes me jealous for all the spring reasons you've mentioned before!
    Hope you recover better than I seem to be. Good luck.
