training-run

Never in my life did I think I would be this happy about being able to go for a five minute run. How sweet it is. It has been seven solid weeks since I have run even one step.

No pain! None at all. I warmed up by walking on the treadmill for 10 minutes at 4 mph (15 min/mile) and then upped the speed to 8 mph (7:30 min/mile) and went for a jog. And it felt fine. And by 'fine' I mean there really was no pain. Nice.

After throwing a huge party and toasting myself repeatedly and sleeping off the hangover I went downstairs, did some stretching and hit the foam roller for my IT band.

Then I went home and had a huge smile on my face as I watched the snow fall on Capitol Hill. Today is a good day.

Thanks to MY PT Neal G and my LMP Tucker R and Naproxen for getting me this far. I will try hard not to overdo it and build up slowly.
