Start All Over Again

After staying out from running completely for 10 days, I felt so restless, heavier and at times, down. Life without running is so bored for me!

Needless to say, I excitedly woke up this morning for a short run. When I mean short, it is really short - 500 metres! I started out with some stretching then walked slowly on the concrete track. I started to run - very slowly upon reaching the synthetic track.

Even though it was only 500 metres, I think it's a good start as I didn't feel any pain at the tendon area. I will increase it to 1km tomorrow, hopefully.

Meanwhile, I would like to thank once again to all the well wishers for their moral support. Without them, I might not have recovered so soon. Thanks, pals!

Start slowly. Even if you can run a few km later, consider running on alternate days.

Thanks for the reminder, Rohaizad. Sometimes, we're too rush to go back to the usual pace that we end up prolonging the injury.

Hi John,

Glad to hear that you are back on running. Start slow sounds very familiar to everyone of us.

As long as we don't give up, we will be standing tall & running again.

Good luck, keep your running strong!

i think its about time you bought your bike lah

cross training is the way to go

you can never get silly injuries with swimming

by the time you can run again, you can become triathlete oredi
