Not every training week is full of spills and trills, some weeks you are just working through the steps, doing the little things to get back to full strength. Things like riding the bike, ice bathes, foam rolling and the like.
I have been able to maintain fitness through the work I have been doing on the bike, so this transition back to running has been quite smooth in terms of pace. There continues to be stiffness but with slow increases in time on the treadmill each day the amount of running is increasing.
Not quite ready to take the running outdoors as the treadmill offers a certain element of control given the uneven footing on the snow packed trails.
The rebuilding process is taking longer than expected but I am hoping for a breakthrough shortly so we can get back to focusing on the indoor track season.
