1. Lets talk progress! I ran 14 miles in the last week. YAY! 5 miles last Thursday, 4 on Saturday, and then 5 yesterday. My foot felt a little sore after Saturdays run so I rested it Sunday and Monday. Yesterday I noticed it felt good so I took it out for a test run and then kept on going since it gave me no problems.
I also did jump lunges for the first time since April with no niggles, no worries about my right quad, just feeling good.
Pretty sure Cola is happy about me getting back to running more too.
|Monday was 19 degrees and yesterday 55. Love Montana weather|
My plan is to keep my mileage pretty low for awhile and really just ease back into it. and possibly run a 5k on Thanksgiving. I am going to wait until next week before I really decide on that one, but I really really want to do it.
2. Pretty sure the last time I charged up my Garmin was right before I hurt my foot. It has just been sitting in my basket of running gear. I take it out sometimes and look at it, but up until today I just didn't feel ready to charge it up. a). I didn't run most of October and b). I wanted my intro back into running to just be relaxed and no pressure.
Since I can have an app for that it is easier said than done. I confess to cheating and using my Map my run app so I could keep track of distance and a rough estimate of pace. To my credit I didn't obsess over my pace, but I do really like to know distance at pace. Although I am convinced the app does not agree with what my Garmin would call a mile. It always seems to call a mile before what I KNOW from years of running certain directions from my house what a mile is. Annoying really.
3. Have I shown you guys Rocky lately?
also a huge THANK YOU!
to everyone who has entered my virtual run! You make my day!
