Reenactment of me, yesterday and today:
Cuz I have that same waistline. Yep.
Anyways…I ran! I’m testing the waters, so to speak.
Monday I popped out on my lunch break and did my first mile since the Solider Field 10 mile race. I set the treadmill at 5.0 mph. I concentrated on relaxing, good form, and not stressing out about it. At .75 miles, I started slowly turning the speed up, ending at 6.0 mph for a final mile time of 11:40.
And it felt GOOD.
I iced it last night, stretched it out, and didn’t feel pain. So far, so good.
This morning, I did it again. I started turning the speed up around .50 mile, for an 11:23 mile.
And again, it felt GOOD.
I’m taking tomorrow off, as much as I don’t want to. I’m trying to be smart here. Thursday I will try 2 miles.
Next week – running outside. After that…the world.
