More progress with the right leg woes. No, it is not 100% – more like 60%, but I will take runnable over whatever was going on last week. Which means that I got 2.0 miles in at a comfortable pace, out in pretty warm conditions this morning. Nothing fast or spectacular, but it was a good run.
I did work on my posture more before and during the run and could feel the difference in how I was running or at least to me it feels different – a video will tell the truth, but I will wait until next week to see where I am with things before getting the video done.
After three days of working on my posture, I am beginning to notice when I do not stand, walk or run with good posture. It is more a feeling of something not being quite correct or right than knowing what I am doing wrong at this point. I have found myself stopping and adjusting my posture back to where I think it should be according to the videos I have watched on Chi Running.
Today was the first day of running in my New Balance Beacon 2 #2. This is the second pair of Beacon 2s that I have run in and the fourth pair overall. The Beacon line just seems to fit and do well for me on runs up to 8-10 miles, but then seem to get a little too firm, so I like a different shoe for longer than that runs. Which means right now it is not an issue.
How did they do? No issues and they felt like Beacons. A very good thing.
After the run, I did the Running Yoga video with Adrienne and sweat up a storm. Just as I was getting ready to do my foam rolling, the wife made an offer I couldn’t resist – to go for a walk with her. We try to walk together once or twice a day and when she comes out and asks if I want to walk with her, I take the time to do it. I consider that “our time”.
A good day and the right leg is improving slowly.
I’ve done one of those Yoga with Adrienne runner’s yoga videos each of the last two weeks. I knew I need to work on my mobility but holy cow I didn’t realize it was that bad. Haha. I hope I keep it as part of my routine.

I started on Monday and I gotta agree with you Scott, I didn’t realize how much my flexibility resembles two 2×4’s nailed together. It will get better, but getting there will be a journey all of its own. 🙂 However, I know we both will get there and be better runners because of it. 🙂
