Cinnamon’s Training Log 1.6.13

Well it’s been a whole year since my original injury, and something is still wrong in there. I can feel it. And yes, I haven’t been totally awesome about my PT exercises, and yes I know I originally ran on it far too long and far too hard, but seriously. It’s been a whole year.

For now I’m still trying to take it easy and relax into my runs. I’m still not racing (although I’d like to).ย  For now the goal is 6m a day, five days a week, and the pace is however the heck I feel. Since I’m more focused on adding the mileage that’s been pretty damn slow, although here and there I wind up feeling pretty good and pick up the pace. Here’s what that’s been looking like over the last three weeks:

M – 6 miles, 10 minute pace (to Cobble Hill and back)

T – Off, with a proper New Year’s Day hangover

W – 3 miles of wandering around lost at a different hash (about 32 minutes since there was no snow this time)

Th – 7 miles, 9:50 pace (Ditmars Blvd to Astoria Park)

F – Off, back to work!

Cinnamon made Salty Running, takes lots of pictures and drinks lots of coffee. By day she's a camera assistant for films and tv in New York, and by night she's on a quest for zen in the 10k. Her writing is a mix of satirical humor, finding wholeness as an average runner, cheering for runners at all paces and more.
