I was surprised. I ran yesterday and it didn’t hurt… much.
I left the house figuring I would walk 3 miles. I got outside and it was cold. Okay, it was only 48 degrees, but in Alabama the humidity makes the cold a lot colder. So I decided to just run slowly to warm up a bit and stop if I felt too much pain in my hip. Well I never had to stop. After 3 miles I was done, but feeling pretty well.
Honestly at this point, I really want to get back into the mode of running each day; even if that is only 3 miles. I have a half marathon in February that I would like to run and then a marathon in March that doesn’t look likely at the moment.
On top of all of that, I will need to take the week off beginning Friday, so that will give me some more time to heal.
Ahhh the fun of the sport. I saw someone yesterday that I hadn’t seen in 9 years and he mentioned several times how good I looked. That made me feel pretty good, especially since I still have on the extra 10 lbs since my injury.
