Time flies! It really does. The month of April came and went, and it is time to review how it went down in terms of training. The month of April was special in that 5 weeks of the pre-training finally came to an end. As it did, the 20-week training program also began, and what that meant was that the mileage on every other weekend would slowly increase and that it was time to see how well the previous 5 weeks were spent.

14 miler, Cadence and New Gel Kayano 21

cadence, stride frequency, stride length,


As it was scheduled, I went for a 14 mile run yesterday. And my main focus was to maintain my recently increased cadence and to increase stride length (SL). It was a perfect day to add a significant amount of miles as the temperature recently dropped significantly due to the rain storm that we had a couple of days ago, so, I couldn’t think of any better place to finish this run other than at the Venice Beach Pier.

Easy Thanksgiving Day Run with Strides

I am thankful for the fact that I’ve recovered from plantar fasciitis and can run without having relapses. I must say though that I can run long miles and do strenuous hikes with sole support. I walked in sandals along the beach in Malibu last Sunday and my left foot was having very slight discomfort in 20 minutes, which showed that, without good sole support, my left foot is not healed enough to take on even a short stroll.

3 mile recovery run on day of 2014 NYC Marathon

02-12-13-carrera-solidaria

I had a feeling that I could run. And I wanted to run. It was a recovery run time. At least 2-3 miles, I told myself.

The temperature has dropped due to the rain Friday night, so I decided not to go hiking Saturday morning while giving my left foot more time to rest. So, part of me wanted to make up for the lack of outdoor exercise and also to see where it is at in terms of my left foot’s recovery progress. Like I noted in the previous post, it has been already over a month since the injury occurred, and as a matter of fact, I have seen a gradual recovery progress, including the recent 10 minute runs on the treadmill. But I couldn’t hold it back any longer. It was time to put it to the test. In the street. Even just for 3 miles. Read More…

Labor Day Weekend Run – 17 miles

IMG_3014

The 3-day Labor Day weekend is here, which means one can use that extra day to catch upon anything he/she has been waiting to. And I know that some of my friends have gone out of town traveling and exploring in the wilderness. For me it is time to enjoy a long run, a long hike and a day of relaxing (although part of me keeps telling me that I should go do strength training) as well as prepping for an upcoming backpacking trip in 2 weeks.
