My Physical Therapist gave me clearance to try and run this weekend. The guidelines were:

1. stop if it hurts at all

2. Make it a short run (preferably run/walk)

3. Pay attention to how it responds after

Well, this morning I was so thrilled for my first run in over a month! Last night I laid out my running gear and I was ready to do this.

But – once again the MD weather flipped me the bird. It is pouring outside ?

I was not going to be stopped from running today though.

So, I hit up the treadmill for 3 slow miles.

The good news: It didn’t hurt!!!

The bad news: It was hard. I feel like I lost a lot of fitness on my time off and it was a lot harder then I remember.

I am thrilled to build back up and get better. one of my main goals for this year is to get faster. because I need to come back slowly from my injury and I’ve lost stamina in my time off – that will be a very long road, but I’m thankful to be back on it.

When I got back I was HUNGRY. I had a handful of cereal and then did my hip exercises.

Then, it was real breakfast time. I made my first successful omelet! Normally, my omelets just end up being egg scrambles because I’m not useful with a spatula.

Inside I stuffed it with mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes and laughing Cow cheese.  I also put some cheese on the top – which made me realize I mightbe eating too much cheese. This is a result of living with a cheese lover (Ben). I’m going to assess this later.

After a long shower and some unwinding I ate an apple and am practically ready for lunch. What have I been doing with my day? I still have a lot to do! I better be productive for a while so I can be lazy later ?

 On post-running injury strategy: 

Running forward: now that I can run again – it  doesn’t imply I can run like I used to. I am going to start back very slowly and pay attention to my knee.

I need to continue to do the hip exercises and incorporate much more cross training into my plan. I think I am going to run 3 days a week for a month before I increase it to 4. But, I don’t think I’ll run much more than 4 days a week for a very long time.

With my next half marathon and full I plan to train 3 to 4 days a week and either spin or Swim or do Kickboxing for additional cardio. I also really have to incorporate much more stretching and yoga!

But – training for a race is a little far off. best now my runs will be 3 to 5 miles max. as I build back up.

I realize the significance of cross training and stretching much more than ever. and this layoff introduced me to kickboxing, which is my obsession best now! I love it and don’t want to stop ever!! in that respect, this time off of running has been a blessing in disguise.

What I’ve learned from NOT running:

– I haven’t gained any weight while not running.  I still think losing a few pounds will help me run better and faster, but losing weight is about how much I eat NOT how much I run.

– I realize I love kickboxing and spinning can be fun too <3 – My hips are very tight and weak, so I really have to focus on this. – I need to rest and fuel my body better. – If I feel any type of injury coming on I will stop and not push through it. – Not running for six weeks isn’t the end of the world, it just sucks really really bad. – I miss running much more in pretty, cool weather; less in cold, windy weather. It killed me not to run in CA, but I didn’t mind dodging snowy sidewalks in MD. – I am happy to be a runner, it’s part of what defines me. I felt very left out and lonely by not running even though I don’t run with anyone. Question: have you ever been “benched” due to an injury or illness? Did you learn anything positive from that experience?? (I really wanted to name this post: “I’m Back Bitches!”,  but chose against it reluctantly in the interest of SEO and readers who are upset by cussing. I want an extra point for today.)
