Still Running...

Posted on December 6, 2015 at 3:10 PM

Yesterday, Saturday, for the first time since September, I woke up, looked outside, and thought, "I am going to go for a run."  Thanksgiving week was my first run after my hiatus, but yesterday was my first run on the weekend at home.  I didn't have to trudge to the gym and get on the elliptical or the spin bike.  I could just lace up my running shoes and go out the door.  So that is exactly what I did, and it was wonderful.

It was Saturday so there were not many people out and about, and it was early in the morning so there were even fewer people out and about.  The ski crowd was not even making their way up to the ski hill yet.  The highway was quiet.  The dirt road where I turned on was silent.  Nothing but me, Zoey, and the deer.  The morning was gorgeous.  30 degrees, crispy clear.  The sun was not yet up but the sky was light.  The cold air felt clean in my lungs.  The road was a bit slick so I couldn't really push the pace, but that is fine.  I am still hesistant to push too hard quite yet.  I want to make sure my injury really is healed before I push hard. 

Zoey and I made our way up to the turn around point, simply enjoying the solitude of the morning.  She was zigzagging, smelling the new smells and relishing in the feeling of being outdoors.  (As a side note, she is the most fun dog to run with.  Whenever I am struggling through a run, I look at Zoey and focus on her complete unbridled happiness.  It always makes me feel better.)  Yesterday I felt great.  My glute / hammy twinged a few times but that was it.  Otherwise I didn't even notice it.  My legs felt good, my stride felt short due to the ice but otherwise good.  The air and the quiet and the was good to be back to running. 

This morning I got a text from my good friend, The Marathoner.  She reminded me that last year on this weekend, I had just finished the Tucson Half Marathon and she was in the middle of the Tucson Marathon.  Crazy to think about now.  After nursing this injury for so long, it is hard for me to imagine training for another half.  I am sure I will run another one, but not in the near future.  Right now, I am happy just to be able to run.

I'm just thankful for your support and even wish you comprehend what a great job that you're undertaking instructing people all through a web site. Probably you haven't met all of us.

I would like to show some appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of this type of problem. Just after looking through the search engines and meeting basics which were not helpful, I thought my life was done. Being alive devoid of the answers to the difficulties you have fixed all through your good website is a critical case, as well as those which might have badly damaged my entire career if I hadn't come across the website. Your good understanding and kindness in maneuvering every item was helpful. I'm not sure what I would have done if I had not encountered such a subject like this. It's possible to now relish my future. Thanks for your time very much for the high quality and amazing guide. I won't be reluctant to suggest your blog post to anybody who should get tips on this subject.
