Running update

Health and Fitness

my running jacket matches the swoosh on my shoes.

I was thinking it might be good to update here every couple of weeks on how my running is going. Mostly for myself. I”m hoping that in a year I will look back and be stoked at how far I have come.

I’m working my way through the Couch to 5k program (again) because I don’t want to go too far too fast again and injure my foot. I’m currently on week six! That means I only have three weeks left of this and then I can move on bigger and better things. I feel kind of silly doing it since I had already worked my way up to 4 miles on my regular run, but whatever.

The plantar fascitis is still bothering me a bit, and I don’t like that. But I’m being really good about stretching and icing my foot when I’m done running. Yoga on my off days has really helped a lot too.

The City of Sandy finished the Tickle Creek Trail and so I’ve been running that in the morning. I am really loving it! It’s nice to get off road to run.

I found a new band a couple of weeks ago and their music makes fabulous running music. The band is Cut Copy and their latest is album is Zonoscope. The song Need You Now has an almost hypnotizing feel to it that is perfect for that state you get into when you are running.
