beginning to feel tedious. I was also getting alot of knee and hip pain. My team in training running coach thought it was a good idea, so I gave it a try.
So, how did my running hiatus go? It went just ok. The knee pain is still there--I feel it every time I go up or down the stairs. It's not that bad though, nothing I can't live with. It did good for me mentally though. I was actually excited to get back to running!
This morning, I dusted off my running shoes, laced them up and head to the gym. I hopped on the treadmill with the plans to run just one mile. Since its been six weeks, I want to start over slow--ease back into
running slowly to avoid any risk of injury. I was been terrified I would lose everything I had worked up to in
the past two years by taking a break. The one mile got tough at some points, but I eased right back into running. It took me 12 minutes, but ran the whole mile. Knowing that I could still run one mile continuously was very reassuring. Tomorrow, I will run another mile, and then up it a little each run.
A dream is a wish...
