I'm so excited! I can still run. Actually I am a little bit shocked. I thought for sure 10 minutes would kill be but honestly 20 minutes was easy. Usually I have trouble with the first 5 minutes but not today. I just plowed through. It felt so good to be running again. Even though most likely I won't be running in the half marathon I had planned I still want to do it for myself. I slightly enjoy it and I am so proud of myself every time I do it. I guess when you have a husband and two kids life happens and it isn't always what we planned it to be and that's ok. I am kind of upset that I won't be running in the half marathon like I had planned but taking care of my body and my husband and children come first.
I do still plan to run a race in the near future but I'm not sure when. I know their is one around me on Thanksgiving. I think it is 9 miles. Maybe I will try for that one. I'm not sure yet. I'm just really glad that I can run again with no pain at all. That and the fact that I didn't lose my ability to run. That is what I was worried about the most. I just have to be very careful and stretch more before and after a run. I really don't want to hurt myself again. To many sleepless nights.
