God Bless Naproxen (5.5 miles!)

Huge accomplishment in my marathon/ITBS recovery progress today. I ran 5.5 miles non-stop at 8:20 pace... and I had to stop at 5.5 not because my ITB was hurting but because a tendon in my foot started bothering me. Not too worried about the foot tendon but I figured I better stop while I'm ahead.

I guess it's either healing on its own or it's the Aleve I'm taking... I've always been an Ibuprofen man but it seems like Naproxen might be the way to go.

At this rate I might even get in a couple more runs outdoors before winter (fingers crossed)

  1. 5.5 at that pace is amazing for me. Im still working on breaking the 10 minute barrier, but as the lbs come off, my speed increases as well as my speed and tempo runs helping out. Keep it up and Keep up the great posts. Keep Running
