With the excitement that came with the greatest news that I could run came a very big adrenaline rush. I ran 2 miles the day I got the clearance and I did 2 miles a day the next two days after that. After not being able to walk because my calves felt like they were ripping, I realized I needed to slow my roll. I need to ease my way into it and I need to give my muscles a break! I have been exhausted! Little by little I will be back at it like how I used to be! Patience is key!
Another 2 miles down in the books! It honestly feels amazing to be running again. It has been a long 7 months and I am excited to get back at it and get my legs back. My doctor said I have to run with my brace on, even on the track or treadmill, which is kind of annoying, but it’s better than not running at all!
I got the greatest news that I could start running and today I ran my first two miles! It just keeps getting better and better!
Hopefully tomorrow I can run off some of the food I will be eating tonight!! Fingers crossed!!
