If this is Tuesday

it must be run day. So I went for a run this morning. Due to a variety of things I did not run last Thursday or over the weekend. Don't ask, I've moved on.

So I did my weight training and got ready for my run. I was a little apprehensive as my foot has been pain free for 4 days and I was afraid what would happen. My fears were completely unfounded. I am starting very, very slowly - kind of like when I first started running. I figure I've been pretty messed up so taking it slow can't hurt. I went out for 15 minutes/1 mile. That's all I'm aiming for right now. Last Tuesday I did 1 mile in 15 minutes - pain free. Today I did 1 mile in 14 minutes. Yea!! I was totally pain free the entire run and all day after. I was very excited that I was a minute faster in just 1 week. It really gives me hope that I will be able to get back to my old pace. Of course, that was slow too (10 min/mile) but I was very happy with it. With any luck at all I'll be back there by the first of the year. That's my goal.

So I made it through the whole day absolutely pain free and I am happy!!
