    Starting to build a little momentum 

    I’m probably a couple of weeks away from being able to run any kind of long run outside–in part from recovery, but mostly from happily being blind-sided by the responsibilities of having a second child at home.

    I’m glad I never thought about the implications of having a new baby in the house; the initial stress on the body is much like the first few miles I ran two years ago… except for the fact that the baby doesn’t always stop crying within 30 minutes, and the fact that running does not involve much responsibility, etc…

    Running:

    2 miles in 18:19 @ 2% incline (9'10" pace)

    Biking:

    11.27 miles in 30 minutes @ level 20 on StairMaster/Speed Intervals

    Slowly building 

    SI joint seems to be more in-line now than before. Got some ITB and hip flexor stretches in.

    Ran 3 miles in 27:41 (9’14”). A little hip flexor soreness. A few kinks otherwise.

    30 minutes on the StairMaster bike afterwards, speed interval program, 20 resistance, 10.81 miles (21.6 mph).

    Running is enjoyable 

    Despite the fact that my post Pig self would scoff at my workout today, I found my RUN enjoyable.

    I ran 2 miles in 18:27. (9’14” pace)

    To complete the workout, I biked 10.88 miles in 30 minutes at level 20 resistance on the StairMaster bike downstairs. Until at full strength (and maybe even afterwards), I will try supplementing my runs with bike activity.

    I’m not so sure about the elliptical anymore. It’s a tougher workout, but it seems to be causing more stress than the bike or even the running. From now on, I’ll bike afterward as a “cool down” and see how that goes.
