It’s been a while since I posted here. Mainly as I fell out of the habit of running because of my deliberate stop prior to a trip to Croatia and then Glastonbury.
Okay so it’s been 7 weeks now since Glastonbury, so why have I not been running?
Well I had some tightness of my calves prior to stopping and also I felt that my right foot wanted to shed a layer of skin under the ball of the foot, about where I’d gotten some glass in it weeks before. So figured a few weeks off to allow this to happen would be good. Sure enough the skin came off and the new skin underneath needed time to thicken.
So all in all I think it was good to take some time off. However now I need to get back to it and that’s just what I’ve been doing for the past couple of weeks. I’ve been running about 2-3 times a week, and only distances up to a mile. I want to know that my legs and feet can handle this before stepping up the distance. Surprisingly everything was fine, despite nearly 3 months off. I guess the previous conditioning has stayed with me a little, which is really good news. I’d hate to have to start again every time there had been a hiatus.
