I officially ran tonight for the first time since Novemeber 23! 3 miles in 36:06. It was nothing spectacular but I wanted to do cartwheels out of excitement. If this was six months ago I would be really dissapointed with a 12:02 pace, but having not ran in 3 months I am really happy with that time. This is proof that I am able to bounce back and I really think its only going to be better from here.
The run itself felt great- I paced well and felt good. My knee started to bother me into the third mile so I slowed it down a little, worked through it and resumed the run. Feels good now after a good stretch and some much needed ice. If I stay on top of taking the care I need of my knee then I think I’ll be back to my old self in no time.
