In between all of this, I've been able to rediscover my long distance abilities. For nearly a year, I felt that I could no longer run more than 4 miles. This was mostly because I was trying to run with the same level of intensity I was running prior to my stress fracture. I found this week, that I can still knock out 7 miles on a Tuesday treadmill run. My confidence is high, and I'm looking forward to going for a longer run this week.
