| After almost a 4 year absence, I've started running again. The last few years have been dedicated to weight training with virtually no cardio of any kind. When I decided that weights alone wouldn't truly keep me healthy or happy, I broke out my running shoes and began building my base for several months. I ran a few mock 5k's until I could finish in under 23 mins. and added speed work and tempo runs.
Before I had my last calf injury in Fall 2012, I was regularly breaking 20 mins. Fast forward to 2017 and I've run 4 races with a fastest time of 22:27. I have a goal to get back to the sub 21 club this Fall. This is a much slower process than my first foray into racing, but I'm determined to get my speed back even at 56 years old.
It feels great just being out there on 5-6 mile runs and racing again.
