Weekly Recap: A Workout Drought and Coaching News!

I have to admit that I’m extremely bummed out.  I’ve been sick with an annoying cold/sore throat/headache/dry cough/sneezing thing since the middle of last week.  So it really put a damper on any goals I had to work out last week.

On top of that we’re having the coldest winter ever in Philly.  Just when I think the Polar Vortex is over, oh wait, here’s another 2 feet of snow, and let’s keep the temperature in the teens and single digits.  It particularly sucks due to having a job that requires spending an extended amount of time outside.  The highways were in really bad shape on Tuesday afternoon as everyone was heading home…I’m grateful I made it back safe.  This cold weather has no end in sight!

This isn’t even all of the snow we got!

I’m not trying to rant of course…I try to have no regrets and make the most of tough situations, but I hope I’ll be well enough to do something active soon!

New Toys, Back to Back Running, and a Coaching Update

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | injury prevention , running tips

Happy Hump Day!  Have you ever wanted the day to go by slowly and it goes way too fast?  That pretty much summarizes my week!  Work has been crazy busy and it’s been a balancing act taking care of everything.  And when I get home, the evenings never last long enough!

But things have been going pretty well.  I had 2 great runs over the weekend, and I haven’t run two days in a row in ages!  I was tempted to run again Monday, but I just can’t push myself.  I feel like I constantly have twinges of pain here and there, so I’m trying to listen to my body right now.

Five Things I Learned After 3 Rounds of Physical Therapy

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | fitness , injury prevention

As I wind down into my final couple of weeks of Physical Therapy I’ve started to reflect on how much time and energy I’ve spent rehabbing my body in the past 15(!) months.  MY PT timeline:

  • Round 1: July – August 2012.  Was diagnosed with “Runner’s Knee” after experiencing awful knee pain during an intense few months of training and racing.
  • Round 2: March – May 2013.  Developed a stress fracture in my right foot after changing my running gait and shoes to “improve” my form.
  • Round 3: September – November 2013.  Developed plantar fasciitis after slowly starting back running in new shoes and freaked out after feeling foot pain after a 5K.

So here are the Top Five Physical Therapy Tips I’ve learned after all of my experiences…

The Asics GT-2000’s Gave Me Arch Pain!

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | injury prevention , running tips

In an earlier post I gave a review of the Asics GT-2000’s…the most beautiful pair of shoes I’ve ever owned.  Unfortunately, what started off so great came to an abrupt, sad ending.  I just took them back today.

Why?  Because I started to experience serious pain in my arches!  This has never happened to me in my entire life!  The Asics are so-called “stability shoes”…I overpronate and these shoes are supposed to compensate.  But my feet weren’t feeling that at all.
