HEY LOOK! That is REALLY me running!!
Well...I was kinda tentatively shuffling/jogging but what the hell it wasn't walking:)
Hurray I had a real BT (Breakthrough) couple of days and along with it comes a resurgance of hope for returning to normal sooner than later.
After a girly weekend of slow walks and spaaaahing I managed to get through Sunday without any tensors on my leg- and without any discomfort either:) Today was another home run and I can not believe how much my leg has improved in the past 2 days. It is crazy! No pain again today and so...I went for my first run after 12 days off:)
Not only did I go for a run...I ran in a short sleeve shirt and had to wear sunscreen! Double woohoo! (writers note: obviously I am not in a short sleeve shirt in the photo above. Actually I am wearing a down vest. But this photo was taken earlier this morning. It was colder then. My real 'run' was this afternoon. It was, like, 14 degrees:)
I took it beyond easy at my warm up/recovery pace for 30 minutes in my back trails. Walked for 1 minute in there but honestly I felt awesome! I am very cautious and hesitant so we will see how I feel after that and build from there. Phew...it is all very exciting:)
