PT reviewed my running on the TM video. Confirmed that I am a forefoot striker, but have a hitch in my stride. The hitch is with my right leg swinging slighty outside before bringing it down, so I will work on that. Nothing unusual noted with my sore left leg, so that was encouraging. They will review the video again over the weekend and I'll get more feedback next Tuesday.
The therapists have really worked over the left calf. They are really digging deep with thumbs and hands to try to break up the rest of the knot. It has shrunk, but it is still there and decided to shift away from the midcalf towards the inside. I have two sessions a week for the next two weeks, and then hopefully I will be finished with PT. Ideally, the knot will be gone also, but that remains to be seen.
At this point, I am going to try to get back on track with marathon training, but at a less intense pace. My original training plan called for runs of various intensities 5 days/week, with the long run on Saturdays, a medium long run or speed work on Mondays, speed work on Wednesdays, and easy runs on Fridays and Sundays. I think I am going to focus on building endurance the rest of the month and wait until September to reincorporate speed. I will also replace some of the easy runs with low-impact work at the gym. I am committed to running every long run, beginning tomorrow through the end of September. 65 days until race day, which leaves 51 good days before the taper!
