Darkest before the dawn
I took a bit of a risk yesterday. I decided that I would try a 20 minute slow run on a treadmill. Partly because of the shitty weather, I decided to try this run on the treadmill. The other part of my reasoning was that i was tending to get sharp pain in my calf when I was going up a hill. Maybe the consistent flat of the treadmill would allow my muscles to adapt and get stronger. So the good news is I managed 20 minutes and 3 km of running. I haven't been able to do that since February and needless to say, I've had a smile on my face since. I am really hoping this is just the beginning.
