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 mountains...it 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 want to express thanks to this writer for bailing me out of this situation. Just after browsing through the the net and coming across advice that were not pleasant, I assumed my entire life was over. Being alive devoid of the answers to the difficulties you have resolved all through your main guide is a critical case, as well as ones that would have adversely affected my entire career if I had not discovered the website. That know-how and kindness in handling all areas was vital. I am not sure what I would've done if I hadn't come across such a thing like this. I can also now look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this skilled and result oriented guide. I will not hesitate to refer the blog to anybody who would like recommendations on this subject matter.

I wish to show thanks to the writer just for rescuing me from such a condition. Right after searching throughout the search engines and meeting opinions which are not productive, I was thinking my entire life was over. Living minus the solutions to the problems you have solved all through your good guide is a serious case, and the ones that could have badly damaged my career if I hadn't come across your web blog. Your actual talents and kindness in taking care of all the details was vital. I am not sure what I would've done if I hadn't encountered such a thing like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time very much for this expert and sensible help.
