I've been running again regularly! Yes, I know, it's awesome!!
I started out a few weeks ago just walking and running a little bit, trying to rehabilitate my knee. Last Saturday (12/24) was my first official run that started off this good week+ of running. So far since then I've gone a little over 19 miles.
Oh, so I'm slow and I'm walking still a bit but just getting out there and running feels great. Last Monday was my "long" run of a little over 5 miles and while I did that on the 31st I may go about 5 miles again today. It depend on how my knee wants to cooperate. It started hurting a little on Saturday so I eased off and walked most of the last mile.
Running makes me feel good. Even if it's going to take awhile to get back where I was I am already seeing and feeling improvements. Right now I'm drinking my coffee, chatting with a friend and just finished my breakfast and will be off to a run in an hour or two.
I won an entry to a race that is super low key and will max out at 40 participants. The distance can be 5, 10, 15k or 1/2 marathon. I don't have to decide until I get there. It's at the end of this month and it's not timed (more of a social fun thing than a race) so who knows how much I'll do!
I'm spacey. I forgot to post this blog so I'm actually now off for my run! I left my emergen-c packets at work so I may work in a stop to whole foods and get a couple to tide me over for the day. Thanks dad for the box of emergen-c for xmas, I would use it everyday if I could afford it! (PS - it's great for hangovers)
