Update: June 7, 2019
Well, I ran a hard 11.5K as a weekly sustained pressure run (Lydiard out-and-back). One of the final kms was 4:44, that’s exactly what my 5K race pace was in January. Boom.
Then we had beer and nachos.
Another 60K week…..
I haven’t checked in for a while. I have been busy. Some of that busyness is caused by running which is a great thing.
For context, I used to run 110-160 kilometres per week (65-100 miles). Had two heel surgeries, one for each heel: Haglund’s Deformity or Retrocalcaneal Bursitis. Then the hip – and the prolonged decline….so 8-10 years off of running depending on what you call running.
Two weeks ago, I had my biggest volume week in a decade-ish, 50K. Then a 33K week – but a seven-day stretch in there of about 45K. Then this week 6oK. I could have done more.
Things are coming together.
My average pace is improving.
So, if you are reading this wondering if you should get a hip replacement done because you are limping and not enjoying a good quality of life – get it done.
It was a long decade.
