Look at AJH run!
Today I ran! Yes, you are reading that correctly. Today I ran for the first time in 11 1/2 weeks! I only went four miles and it was darn slow. But it was pain free and it was running! My heel still feels great several hours later and I can't wait to do a short run again tomorrow! I am on my way back! I cannot tell you how much I love this! I have worked hard to get back to running and I am so glad to be out there! I plan to take it easy. But........I am running!
T and I running together! Bright colors because it is hunting season!
This isn't a sign you see in every store window!
Today I read in the Sunday magazine that Jake Gyllenhaal loves to run. But he couldn't run for awhile because he had severe shin splints. He used biking as his main form of exercise. Hello, Jake??? Why didn't you call? We could have done some rides together and given each other some sympathy! Taylor wouldn't have cared. (And that statement shows that I read People way too often!
On the way back on our walkYesterday T and I walked as that is what I was advised to do before I ran. I am the perfect patient (seriously) so I did. Then I hurried home and had no time to stretch. I hated hated hated thinking I wasn't doing the most I could do for my heel. When I got home later I went through my whole routine. Then I could feel better. Our walk was great!
This is a hill T runs up - seriously steep!
Walking towards T's house
So today I am enormously thankful for being able at long last............to run!
