In my last post, I talked about how I had been having shoulder pain as well as hamstring pain. Luckily, both of those pains subsided and I was able to keep all the pain away and run 57 miles in a week! I have my friends at the HealthSource of Avon to thank for keeping everything in working order lately. Every nagging pain they gladly take care of and show me exercises to keep it at bay.
Although I did run 57 miles, I don’t think that is a habit I should get used to.I am an injury prone runner after all. And while I am a self proclaimed high mileage junkie, I followed up the next week by only running 22 miles. Actually, I had a horrible cold that completely knocked me on my butt and could barely run.

After looking at my training plan, I’ve decided to make some changes to it. I want to make sure I keep the mileage somewhat normal. I will post the updated training plan once I put the finishing touches on it.
A lot of my treadmill miles were because I was running very early in the morning so it was too dark to run outside on my own. Other times it was just too cold. Unfortunately, I see snow in the forecast so I will likely be on the treadmill for a few more days.
