Weekly round up: Back running

Weekly round up: Back running

Running Happy weekly round up

I was back running this week!

After 10 weeks of not running and seeing my physio, I was allowed to walk/run a kilometer this week. And, boy, did it feel good to be out there!

I walked 200m then ran 200m for a total of 1.2km. It may not seem much but it is something to build on. I did have a bit of pain from my plantar fasciitis at first but it wore off as I ran a bit more. My physio has suggested building up slowly for the next three weeks and then to let her know how I get on. She thinks a slow build up will be okay and although I might have some pain to begin with it should ease off. Fingers crossed!

If it doesn’t then it’s back to the drawing board, and possibly something called shockwave therapy. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that! Watch this space.

How was your week? Did you run any new routes or races?

  1. Happy to hear you are running again. I built up mileage too quickly once, resulting in injury. It took me a while to recover, so now I am extra careful adding in more runs or longer runs. Slowly but surely.

  2. I’m so happy to hear you are now able to run! 10 weeks is a long time. (That’s how long I stayed out with my foot stress fracture.) I know if felt absolutely wonderful. Did they suggest using any type of inserts or orthodics? Hopefully, your foot will get accustomed to running over the next few weeks and you won’t have any more issues! Thanks for linking with us Nicola.

    • It’s so great, even though I’m only running for 10 minutes.
      I do have orthotics but I’ve not used them yet. The physio said to try running without them at first. I’m thinking about buying new trainers with more support as well as I think that will help.
