On Wednesday I ran 4km and nothing hurt.
The difference was my shoes.
While I still strongly believe that my Vibrams helped with my knee issues, I don't think my running form is perfect and I end up with a lot of calf tightness and pain. But for the present, I will try switch up between the shoes I have, and use Vibrams for shorter runs and the others for longer ones.
I usually have high goals and great intentions. I always tell myself I'll run further/faster than I did last time, but sometimes I quit early because I get bored (usually) or something will start hurting and I should stop to prevent it from getting worse.
Today, my aim is to set out for a run and return one hour later. I want to keep moving for 60 minutes.
I would like to practise the 2-1 method, or another version where I'll alternate running with walking. This is to practise for a crazy race/event-thing that my room-mates and I are doing in 2 weeks.
We've mapped out a 2-mile route around out neighbourhood that starts and ends at our house.
We've also set a 5-hour limit.
We want to see if we can keep moving for that long.
And also, to see who can run the furthest.
And if it's cold out, we'll just get our crew to make us hot chocolate, so we can have something to look forward to each lap :)
