I'm Back!

I know I have been away from the blog for the past couple months, but I've just been really busy with other things and to be honest, updating this blog was the last thing on my mind. To address my ankle, it is feeling much better now and I am able to run on the treadmill with basically no discomfort. I have not tried running on the road yet, but I will definitely be giving it a try in the next couple days or so. I also ended up seeing a "specialist" a little while back, who works at the Running Room to help pick out some new shoes. He's a competitive marathon runner so he did give me a couple tips on the recovery process. He basically confirmed everything I've read about peroneal tendonitis and also suggested that I go visit a RMT and get a deep tissue massage so that it can get the knot out of the injury area. I have yet to do that, but I have been working on strengthening ankle so that it would prevent future injuries. I will probably go see a RMT after the Sun Run, which will be next weekend. I am pretty excited about that and it is a pretty short run (10K). I just hope I'll be able to finish it under my target time, which is within an hour.

Anyway, I will try to be more discipline in updating this blog more often and providing more detailed information about my runs and other running related things. The next thing on the agenda, after the Sun Run, will probably be paying a visit to a RMT and getting new shoes, so look forward to some new material!

Well, until next time! Run hard, run often!
