Running Again


So I haven't been around much but I am really hoping to change that. June 28th I went for surgery and as a result I was unable to run for several weeks. That was the hardest part. I would look longingly at my runners and running gear at the bottom of my closet and wish so badly to strap them on and take flight.

Well this week I went for my 6 week check up and was cleared to start running again!!!! Can you say awesome?!?!? so this week I got back into the groove. I started out wednesday with a short 2 Km walk/run. walking 3 mins then running 2 mins. It was nice. Today I went out for a longer run/walk and made 4Km. Feeling pretty good. I tried to run as much as I could, but man is it difficult to keep going when you muscles and lungs tell you that they do not want to keep going!!

My second step this week was to sign up for a running group with the local running room. It's a 5Km group- starting slow and steady. I am actually looking forward to working up to running and hoping to pick up some tips along the way as well.

The big challenge will be this May. I want to run a 1/2 marathon on May 27th. Check the details out here. I am very excited to be working towards this!! I will try to keep you all updated on my progress so watch here!!

Glad to be back and glad to be running again!!!!

Congrats! I'm sure you'll get back into the full swing of things soon...I stopped running after all the heat we were having and now have been too lazy to get back to it! So yay you!
