The doc said I could start running again (!!) but just to take it easy and listen to my body. The pathetic limitations of my fitness right now make that not an issue. Yet it is something I struggle with as I get back into shape. That probably won’t be for a while though.
As soon as I got home from my appointment this morning, I loaded the younger 2 into the stroller (oldest was at school) and did a short walk/run around the neighborhood. 1.58 miles total. Here’s the break down …
walk .2 miles (3:19)
RUN .5 miles (5:03)
walk .3 miles (4:22)
RUN .3 miles (3:03)
walk .28 miles (4:32)
So I ran .8 miles total. Hmmm. Very unglamorous. And I was jigglely in places I am not used to jiggling. But you must start somewhere and that is where I am.
