I ran! And it didn’t hurt!
Ok, not really, but it’s a fantastic start right? I got a tiny run/walk in on Saturday just to test the waters and then I went for a short run/walk on Sunday. Sunday was more run than walk but my cardio felt crazy so I need a couple of walk breaks. This morning I started with a good quarter mile warm up and then ran an “easy” 5K. So far, so good. For the record, I hate the term “easy” when it comes to running. No pain waking up and no pain running or throughout the day. I will say the shoe inserts and the PT exercises have helped tremendously. Along with the no running, of course.
Naturally I want to run my face off now. I was told by Coach Jon to take it easy and not get greedy.

Fine. I shall do as he says and hop back in the pool for another DWR session tomorrow morning. I am registered for the Rock N Roll New Orleans 10K on Sunday. Depending on how I feel it will either be a hard effort or a fun run. I haven’t run a 10K since 2011! I don’t really enjoy that distance so it’ll be very interesting. I then plan to eat all the King Cake in New Orleans. And cuddle the hell out of my nephew.
How was your weekend? Got more to report than I do?
I'm so glad that your heel didn't hurt this weekend! How fun that you're going to get to do RnR! Have a wonderful time in NOLA!
Woo hoo! Hooray for cooperating heels!
Today was my first day back in a long time and I'm trying to decide how I feel. My body is sort of WTF and my head is trying not to be controlled by my body.
10ks aren't my favorite distance. I do love a half the best
YES! So glad tot hear this! Have a blast this weekend! Yay for auntie time! 🙂
I am so glad that we can be friends!! Thank You Disney. Pleased to read that you "trotted" pain-free. Then, totally surprised that you signed up for a 10K & stated that you are not a big fan of that distance. What Gives?!?!? My weekend was over the top for sure & I reported a story of info. Stay strong, Enjoy the pool time, & Speak your truth. Big Hugs
Nice! Enjoy the newfound freedom and have fun in NO.
Yay! for pain free running!
Ah, Scrooge McDuck. LOL
Good luck on Sunday. I'm running a 5K on Saturday that will be my first 5K in almost a year, I tend to go for the longer distances.
