Running the Road to Recovery 9

Running the Road to Recovery is about coming back from an illness. In June, 2012 I was in training for a 4-mile race, and was able to run 3-4 miles at a decent (OK, mediocre) rate of speed. A kidney infection that triggered a secondary infection to my knees derailed my training. But only temporarily.

I was hoping to get up to 4 miles, but I've topped out at 3.5. I only have about an hour to run in the mornings, so until my pace picks up, the distance won't change that much. That's OK, though -- it still means I can do a 5k in less than an hour (a big deal for someone in my condition). The trick now is to find a race on a date I have free. In the meantime, I'll keep working on the pace.
