Knock on wood!
I don't want to jinx it, but, while I've been keeping the mileage short and the pace moderate, my hamstring is still behaving. I've run almost every day this week, and no twinge. Yesterday, M and I went for a 7 mile run outside, and nothing bad happened. I'm pretty excited to be moving out of the ranks of the injured, and hopefully for a while. Now, of course, the frustration is fitness lost. In October I was in sub-4 hour marathon shape. I ran 20 miles at about an 8:20 pace. Now, even an 8:30 mile feels ambitious. I'm wondering what my next goals are. There's a 4-miler in Prospect Park in two weeks. I'm not sure if that will be a confidence builder or a confidence buster . . . Hmm . . .
