I missed doing distances and after strolling along a motorcycle expo went well is Saturday, I decided to do a longer and fat burning run. So that’s what I did. And though I do feel my left leg a little, I felt it went well. I’m curious about how it’s going to feel later today and tomorrow. I do feel that on longer runs I tend to shift my weight to my left leg. Something to watch for, I guess. , Avg Cadence:77

Can you imagine it’s actually harder now to hold my hand in a fist than on the beach on Wednesday? I also discovered today that I’m probably running on sugars more than slow fat burning. So I probably need to adjust my training to longer stretches with a lower heart rate. Maybe I can try that Sunday or Monday. I feel my left leg now. It’s going to be interesting to see how that goes during the rest of the day. And tomorrow as we’ll have a long day of slow walking on a motorcycle expo tomorrow. , Avg Cadence:77
This was one awesome run. I mean, the wind was terrible, the sand was very soft at a lot of places and it was an empty barren place. But man, was it great to run on. I have noticed though, that as I need to concentrate on my running or my feet need to work harder, I drop the tension on my left hand. So that still needs work. And I do feel my left leg more today, but I’m not sure whether that’s from letting my hand go, or from the sand, or from the extra 5 minutes of my run.
All in all, I’m happy about the run and the pace. And now to our four star breakfast. 😉

Two things happened this morning. First, I didn’t have that much time. Second, on Friday I was already considering doing a longer run. So, I decided to try to strike a compromise with myself. Which meant that I wasn’t going to go further than I would run during the Physio workouts, but I would drop the walking and just do 3K continuously, but set my pace warning for 6m/km. Well, the pace went badly, as I ran much faster, but I made the 3K quite nicely.
Having said that, I did feel my left leg at the start, but it seemed to drop off in the third quarter of the first km only to return on the walking afterwards. I think I’ll stretch the intervals for later this week. , Avg Cadence:82
I have learned several things on this run:
– Making an extra fist becomes easier
– Pace is terrible to judge yourself by during a run
– I feel my leg more when I take less time in between runs (only one day of rest before this run and several days between the previous runs
– Smaller steps seem to help to keep my pace up, Avg Cadence:77
At my last session, my physiotherapist filmed me running and noticed my left hand flapping around. So, besides the core exercises I need to do, there were two extra changes on this run. I needed to put tension on my left hand during all of the run. And because we found an interesting fact about one of the joints in my foot, I also had a little extra support in my shoe.
I never knew that holding your hand takes so much energy. I dropped a little in pace, but the change in concentration is remarkable. It was surprisingly draining to do that.
But I feel my left leg less than on previous runs, so there could be a fair chance that my left leg was overcompensating for thing happening on the right. , Avg Cadence:76
The start went reasonably well with less trouble in my left leg, but I am unsure whether that is because of my exercises, or because I haven’t run since Saturday. But pretty happy about this progress. Back to my physiotherapist tomorrow and then we’ll see.
I do notice that I wear out quicker. Might be the lack of long runs. On the other hand the intervals are faster. , Avg Cadence:75
