I am cleared to run!
I ran a single mile today and it felt great to be back out there! I felt I could have run longer. So this is what running in autumn feels like? I need to get some reflective gear – it’s dark out there!!
So woo hoo, right? Yes and no. I was given the okay to ease back into it and my PT even gave me a running schedule for the next two weeks so that I can run / walk the half. My first instinct is Yippee!!!!
I’m also feeling nervous that maybe the run won’t hurt tomorrow, maybe it won’t hurt the day after that – but what if it does start to hurt the day before, during the race, etc. I’m so happy, excited, nervous, anxious, etc. that I don’t know what I should be feeling at any given moment. Combine that with all the emotions I’m feeling over actually doing a half marathon and you’ve got one crazy woman on your hands.
I guess all I can do is take it one mile at a time and hope for the best. I’ve got a 5K on Sunday – of which I will only run two miles.
What’s on your weekend agenda? Tell me about all the feels you have after coming back from an injury or gearing up for a big race!
