I’ll keep this short because I don’t want to jinx myself, but I started running again. Three days with a day break for cushion as I’m still leery. I ran slow and very short distances. The first day I ran .5 miles (I know – I know… Should have went less, but I’m dying, guys.) and walked .5 x2. The next day I ran .2, walked .2 until I hit 2.4 miles. Then rest day. Today I ran .2, walked .2 to 2.0 miles. Guys, NO PAIN. Mild fear, yes – but I did everything to push it out of my mind… I went slow, but I am feeling optimistic. Now here is where I need you. I am signed up for a HM in end of August (8/20/16). I’ve looked up some 8 week HM programs, but would like some insight from you all.. Bonus for those who have recovered from a stress fracture themselves. When can I start adding distance? I only have 9 weeks until race day. My PB HM was 1:46. I obviously don’t care about getting near that. I just want to run the whole thing and feel strong at the end. Thoughts on these training plans below? I really want to get going, but don’t want to push it. Time is ticking!
