- Ran 13 miles outdoors
- Joined the Welles Park Fitness Center ($22 for March)
- Worked out on the machines and free weights twice
- Ran on a treadmill for about the fifth time in the last 10 years
- Swam laps at the Welles Park Pool for five hours
So, yes I have been running. Not much, but it's a start. For now, my ankle can handle the low mileage. The big test will be to see if I can ramp up to something above 20 miles per week. If not, I will drop back down to 2 to 3 miles per day and just swim as much as possible to keep up my endurance. If my ankle doesn't agree to 20 miles/week, I will just lift weights and try to strengthen my ankle.
So, my only goal is to not be injured on April 15th. I will arrive at the starting line of the Boston Marathon and when the gun sounds I will just try to finish the race by walking or running or a combination of both.
I will endeavor to propel myself forward 26.2 miles collect my medal and then check the Boston Marathon off of my list. Then I will likely need a couple of weeks to recover!
Anyone doing the Get Lucky in two weeks? I am hoping I will be able to run/walk the half marathon to test my run/walk full marathon strategy. It may be a last minute decision.
