After a 10 day hiatus I finally got out for a run. Knee issue is still a mystery, foot is an inflammation(probably shoe and work issue), and sprained ankle is healing. More doctors planned for next week. This 5k run was exhausting cardio wise, but the knee pain is minimal with the knee sleeve worn. Left Foot arch was achy at beginning but not terrible and right ankle is non issue. Signed up for a gym today so looking to do some strengthening with a personal trainer. Also bought sports massages on groupon which I am excited! Photo from Bay of Kotor in Montenegro back in 2013.

Injury has knocked me down for the past month, but it is healing slowly. At least no more limping when I walk and I was able to do this walk/run with Deanne the beagle from Paws. Just focus on recovery and weights at the gym at the moment until I can hit the road again. #nikeplus #nikerunning #injury #funrun #runwithdog #adoptdontshop #zensah #withoutlimitz #xc #running #fitlife #teamzensah #athlete #5zb #brandambassador

Easy but windy 22 mile run. Offseason just means less intensity in the training but still go out and do I what I enjoy doing.

Left knee still feeling weak and this weird pain is still bothering me. Knee sleeve doesn't help at all today so I am considering taking a couple weeks off. Boston training group already started but unfortunately I won't be able to attend. Need to go back to move forward....photo from Dubrovnik old town in Croatia back in 2013. .

6 mile progression run from 8:00 to 6:18 per mile pace, dropping about 20 seconds per mile. Suppose to go for a long run today but just got too lazy to get out of bed early enough so will just settle for this progression run. Photo from Vienna in 2013.

12 tempo miles with 2 mile warm up and 1 mile cool down. Felt good even though it was only 20 degrees (-7C), but at least I didn't have to worry about overheating. I should wear another layer for my crotch because that's the most painful part to get frostbites. Splits were anywhere from 6:24-6:56, but big variation was due to the west wind of 18mph. Felt good.

Happy #thanksgiving !I am so thankful to have found a passion in running. Did 2 mile warm up, 10 miles at 6:35-6:48, 1.3 mile cool down for a half marathon. Saw a lot of people wearing their #turkeytrot Shirt during the run. Sparing the turkey today, eating dim sum instead with the fam! What are you thankful for today?

Did a 5 mile run today , finally able to elevate my pace and heart rate on this run. Still have some issues on the left knee, so I will try different stretches and more rest. This is a Throwback picture of me in Sarajevo back in 2013, a beautiful city to explore.

Managed a progression run today down to 6:25. Left knee pain came at 3.5 mile but wasn't too bad. Feels like ITB syndrome is bothering me more than Runners knee. Been doing the self exercises so hopefully it's helping. Photo from Lake Ohrid in Macedonia 2013.

Survived this 14 miler! Took it easy for this long run with Adam and fleet feet's ##boston365 group because of my runners knees. I felt a bit of pain after mile 9 but didn't want to stop. Sprinted the last two miles but ran out of gas! Not in marathon shape but I will work up to it slowly...

Joined a gym gym and ran on a dreadmill. Did a progression run from 7:00 to 6:31, knees holding up. Also 55 flights of stairs and 5 miles on the bike. Leg day! #nikeplus #nikerunning #justdoit #treadmill #dreadmill #progression #xsport #zensah #withoutlimitz #xc #running #fitlife #teamzensah #athlete #5zb #brandambassador

Yes I have Runner's Knees but I am still running, just going to implement some new exercises and take it easy on the run workouts. Photo from Tirana, Albania in 2013.

Happy New Year everyone! Wanted to start 2017 a good run but just did a short mini jog because I twisted right my ankle last night after walking into a pothole. Also my left knee is still tired and painful so I could only do a 5k. I know I shouldn't run but I am stubborn, it's the first day or the year! My running resolution of the year is to be relatively injury free and run sub 3 in Boston. Let's get healthy first! .

Final run of the year and wanted to cap it with a longish run. Had to wear a #mcdavid knee sleeve again to help with my #injury and it does wonders. Still a bit of pain once in a while but not enough to stop me from running 15 miles. My mileages has dropped significantly this month due to the injury and first time this year that I dipped below 100 mile for the month but I hope I am healing properly so I can start training for #bostonmarathon2017 next week.

Dreaming of the beaches by the Adriatic Sea. After nearly a week of no running to recover for my left knee, I decided to go for a jog and see how it feels. After a mile I felt the same pain I did from a week ago, it was bad enough to stop me from running and walk for a bit before jogging back home. It's frustrating and fortunately this is the off season. Instead of just no running I will try to be more active and do my stretches and foam rolls in hopes that my knee will heal faster. I do have a half marathon in a month, but it's okay if I don't PR. My main race is Boston 2017. Photo from Zadar in Croatia.

Went out for a run despite the pain in my left knee. I think I've been landing on the left side of my feet lately so the left side of my left knee have been giving me issues. Tried landing on the inside/right of my left foot and I was able to finish this run, albeit some pain here and there. It's kind of cold 10F/-12C but not bad as long as the feet, fingers, ears and crotch are warm enough. Photo from Pula Croatia in 2013.

5000 miles since I've started this running journey in October 2013. Since then I've completed 4 official marathons, one 50km, two 50 mile and one 100 mile races. The races are merely goals that I set for myself, it's those miles that I put in for training that helps me grow. I am incredibly grateful to have found running and live in a community that celebrates it.

Did 8 x 800 today between 2:47-3:01 followed by a cold shower. The cold shower was by far worse than any of the 800 splits but it is also the most rewarding, even as I am typing this with shivering fingers. Photo from Ljubljana Slovenia in 2013.
