And it's back on!

Well, since finishing up my season at AO's in mid November I've been taking it pretty easy. My knees were starting to feel pretty banged up and coach and I decided it was time for a well deserved rest. I took 2 entire weeks off of running and by the end, I was starting to feel all wound up and out of place.

Since the first day of December I've been working my way back with 30km of easy running each week and this week looks like I'll be close to 40km after tomorrow's long run.  I even tossed in a 20 minute tempo run at 4:05/km today and the legs felt great.

I went out last night and spent hundreds of dollars on new shoes, winter jacket, base layers and mitts to prep for my first season of winter running in I can't remember how long. At least 10 years now. Yikes.

I'm proud to announce that my knee pain is under control again, these new shoes were the key it seems. That and some new stretches I've incorporated, mostly for my hip flexors. I'm going to continue gradually increasing my mileage while keeping the knee pain under control, it's the winter months, there's no reason to go hurting myself, it's time to lay down a solid base for track season next summer. Yup, I said track season. My god, what am I getting into?

Well that's about it for now. I'll be posting a recap of my 2010 athletic achievements and failures shortly, it should make for an interesting read.
