W1 D1 Redo

After doing W1D1 last week, then doing extra, I decided to take the week off and start over and do it right, doing W1D1 this afternoon. Went well, took it nice and easy, didn't do any extra intervals. Have to remember doing too much speedwork is why I'm here.

A little history about myself. I completed the C25k 4 yrs ago, with about 30 others in a group on Coolrunning forums. Then I went on to complete 4 marathons, 2 NYC and 2 NJ, and 12 Half marathons. I logged in 1340 miles in 2014, never worried about PR's or my time. Until I decided to run the Asbury Park Half 2yrs ago, I registered and wanted to run a good time for once so I started the Hanson's Half Marathon plan, it's a great plan but I wasn't ready for all the speedwork, although I was meeting all my times, I eventually got Plantar Fasciitis, ( you don't want that), had it for 14 months, never ran the Asbury Park Half, wound up having surgery to get rid of the PF, all the stretching , rolling over a waterbottle wasn't helping.

Now i'm starting over , and slowly :)

  • Welcome back. It scares the hell out of me to read your story. Note to self: Don't get carried away. Go slowly.

    Glad you are back and ready to start over.

  • Slow but sure, that's the way forward. Good luck !

  • Blimey John, you've got quite a story there! Welcome back and I'm sure you'll be a great source of wisdom for many here with your experiences.

  • Did C2/5 2 years ago and in the spring got PF. Over that a few months ago and restarted last week. Good luck.

  • Welcome back, and your willingness to start from scratch again after achieving so much is genuinely inspirational. My hat is off to you and my best wishes for your Running revival ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Great to have you back running. There is definitely a warning in your tale though, that we all need to heed.

    Keep running, keep smiling.

  • Best of luck, bud. Not only do I not want PF, I don't even want to know what it is. Keep it slow and steady mate. You know what you're doing.

  • Good luck and enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€
