As I mentioned a few days ago, I’m nursing an Achilles tendon injury and haven’t run since Wednesday. I’ve been doing a little cross-training in the meantime. I was hoping to do more intense cross-training on a bike trainer, but the bike trainer I ordered got lost in delivery and never showed up as promised and I’m still waiting for it. Hopefully, it arrives tomorrow so I can start getting in some good aerobic workouts. I was able to get a short mountain bike ride in yesterday, which is a decent workout, although it is just not the same as a good run.
The good news is that my Achilles tendon feels pretty good right now, not even a tingle of pain. I may go for a short 3 to 5 mile run tomorrow morning just to see how it feels. Regardless of how I feel, I’ll most likely reduce the volume of miles over the next couple of weeks. So right now, I’m cautiously optimistic that this is only going to be a minor setback.
This week I ran 25 miles. Started the week off well and got a decent interval run in on Tuesday. However, on Wednesday morning, I cut the run short due to injury. I slept well every night with 20 – 30 minute and nap in the afternoons. I also ate very healthy thanks to the NutriBullet blender I purchased earlier this week, tons of fruits and vegetables. Also, got in a good amount of core training and stretching and it was a relatively stress free week.
