Injury Update, Version 2

Hi folks! So after 6 weeks off from running (with a mix of spin and elliptical, but not rowing because that strained my Peroneal tendon), I’m back! Slowly and cautiously. I took my first test run on Saturday the 26th and it felt pretty good. Well, it was hot and sunny and I had to break for water on the 2.5 mile loop, but pretty good considering. I’ve done a couple of similarly short runs since and the pain after is basically nil. I’m trying to make better efforts toward stretching, recovery, and pre-running prep (glute activation) as well as doing more yoga.

I’ll just catch everyone up on my recent eats. It’s softshell crab season! And ramps season! And frosé season! My birthday was June 2nd, so there were a lot of good eats.

    • I was Yelp Elite for 9 years but lost it this year because I stopped posting as many reviews. Much like blog posts, I always have a couple drafted but it takes so many edits lol.

  1. Happy belated birthday. I just selected my NYC marathon training plan . . . hopefully, I can follow it this year.

    My beer club goes to Big Alice Brewing quite often. I wish that I had known about it when I lived on Roosevelt Island. It would have been a great finishing spot after running loops around Roosevelt Island.

    • I really liked Big Alice! Will have to try all of the other LIC breweries (especially Transmitter).
