Week 18 – Day 16

After 11 days of not running, I’m impressed that I could run almost 17 minutes. I surely thought I would at least run less minutes. Instead, I kept up the pace. It was a great run, and hardly any pain.

It’s not like I drank more water than usual, in fact, I drank less water than most other days. One thing I didn’t do was drink alcohol. I did, however, eat more beans and fish. I think I might be onto something. Diet matters a lot.

Week 18 – Day 5

I keep taking breaks like this, I won’t get anywhere. It’s been three days since my last run. I’m getting ready for a long trip up north, so I don’t know when I’ll get another chance to run.

Week 18 – Day 2

A little break, and back at it. My pace was normal, so I was happy about that. I did do something interesting earlier in the day. I stretched my calves and shin muscles. I have to say that a 15 minute run went really well, because I didn’t feel any pain in the shins. I just thought it was old age. I’ll have to focus more on the stretching too.
