It’s only a little lie… right?

Distance: 2 mi running, 1 mi walking

Time: Yes, I even timed it… 17:22 for the run.

Miles to go: 1994

…ok so I took the 1/4 mile off for the 2 1/2 miles I walked in the past two days.  I hate doing math…

This… was… an… honest… to… goodness… RUN!!!  W00T!!!!  Just me… on an old familiar trail.  I felt like I could have run more, but I don’t want to start back up too fast.

This comes out to an 8:41 pace.  Not bad for a 2 month layoff!  I could definitely feel it in my lungs, which is VERY unusual.  I may have pain everywhere else, but my lungs almost never get in the way.  I could definitely tell I had been off for a while.

My first half split was 4:30 and I managed to run negative splits from there on in.  I felt sluggish the whole way.  Like my turnover was about half of usual.  I felt a few twinges and I’m definitely sore, but nothing major.

Tomorrow I’m back on schedule with weightlifting and I might try to stretch a bit as well.  But I am definitely going to run on the way home.  There is a park conveniently located two exits up from me that has a 1.7 mile paved walking path around it.  I’m going for two laps…  we’ll see.  I had to take Advil this evening.

My follow up doctor’s appointment is Wednesday.  I’m going to give him my best “please let me run” sad, pouty face and NO… I’m not going to tell him I’m already running again.  I know… I know… I’m going straight to hell.  As long as I can take my running shoes…
