Back Running Again

Due to a minor but painful calf muscle tear, I did not run all of July. Started in very gingerly Aug. 1, then the 3rd, 4th and 5th did 8k, 8k, 10k at an easy pace with several rest walks. No pain or stiffness at all, so I guess the calf has healed.

I'll rest tomorrow and do a moderately paced track workout wednesday as a test. If all is well, I'll get back to regular training next week.

Have lost 2.5kg since getting back from Thailand - pretty impressive considering I wasn't running.
Down to 58.2kg. The goal was 58, so I've revised that to 57. Kenyan thinness, here I come!

Have also been doing abs or a gym workout every day. People marvel at my 6-pack abs.

  1. Nice to see you back at it Bob. Good luck at the track on Wednesday. No question about it ... if I looked like Asbel Kiprop, my wife would probably leave me! Non runners, they just don't get it.

  2. Impressive Bob. No need to tell you to put your shirt back on. A darker shade of spray-tan and you'll be ready to race.
