I am now 2 weeks into my new running schedule and I have a worrying ache in my right foot, ankle, and shin, as well as slightly strained adductor muscles. Awesome, right?
I may have started out with too much enthusiasm when I jumped from no treadmill running to 12 miles a week on the treadmill. I'm going to spend a week back on my normal exercise routine (now with more yoga!) then try a slower incorporation of treadmill running next week. To ensure that I'm not just giving up, I've picked out a present for myself once I get back on the treadmill. If I do get back on after a week and stick with it, I'm getting myself this super-pretty yoga mat! Or maybe this one. I'll let you know :)
