I did my first workout today since the injury. I wanted to keep it controlled just so I can see how my sciatic will react. I did a 3 mile tempo after a 1.3 mile warm up. Ended with a two mile cool down. 6:44, 6:35, 6:40. I can tell my fitness is down but that's to be expected. Happy with how it felt, sciatic didn't flare up during the run.

Nothing lets you know your fitness is down by pushing your kids in the stroller I was feeling pretty winded. Tough run this morning in the wind.


Quick 2.1 mile run in the evening, I didn't have much time and I ended up racing the wind. Just keeping my mileage low.
