I haven't done one of these in a while, huh? I'm happy to report that I'm back into a regular running schedule. I've been running three times a week following the Couch to 5K plan to rebuild my fitness level. I'm also using this as a way to transition into forefoot running. I've just finished Week 5 and did my first 20 minutes of continuous running since before I got sick. It was great! Forefoot striking is starting to feel really natural, and my lower back ache is pretty much gone. My right hip is still tight and frozen though, so I may need to see the physio for that. I had sore calves for the first few weeks, but that's mostly gone now. My knees feel a bit achey after today's run. I'm definitely going faster with the same amount of effort though.
