Back from my short trip to New York and a great place New York is, although, with the exception of Central Park not really a very runner friendly city. The grid system of streets means that there are traffic light controlled crossings at least every 300 meters or so which would make getting into a rhythm almost impossible – hence I did my entire running on the treadmill. Still with the streets closed I imagine a spectacular place to run a marathon.
My next priority is to get my knee injury on the mend and whilst I have the prognosis I have to wait three weeks to get into the podiatrist to get orthotics made although I can start physio probably next week. I have invested in some new (motion control) shoes in the meantime (Brooks Addiction) but I may take the decision to give up running for a month to give my recovery a kick-start. I’ll make the decision this weekend.
Today: Enforced rest
