Running again

Two weeks ago, the surgeon who performed my foot surgery told me that he sees no residual restriction in my foot, and that I should be able to proceed as before. In other words, stop babying it.

So, two weeks ago, I went running for the first time in six months. I ran 3.71 miles at an average pace of 9’07” per mile. This Saturday, I ran 4.49 miles at 8’44” per mile.

Not nearly as fast as I used to be, but I’m happy to be able to run again. And I’m ecstatic that I’m regaining my cardiovascular abilities. Boy, my lungs burned that first run.

Do you need advice on how to regain or retrain a neuromuscular function? Ask me.
