Since starting yesterday, I’ve done two easy 20 minute treadmill runs. Wow. Big deal.
My calves actually ached a lot during the second one. This is the sixth run in a row, all 20 to 30 minutes. I wore my fivefingers today and yesterday and so that’s probably why they were achy. That and not being a regular runner at the moment.
So my plan for the running machine is to keep running easy for a while, keep running short distances for a long while. That doesn’t mean I will not run outside, not go faster or anything. Just that I want to keep things easy.
Work also gets in the way. I’ve had early meetings first thing in London these last two days and so there is less time to do things when there is three-plus hours travelling each day.
