Yippee! I made it four miles this morning. After four weeks of physical therapy for a torn hamstring, I'm finally able to run whatever my leg allows me. I'm a little sore but it feels good to be back making progress!! It was so discouraging to be hurt because of my half-marathon goal but there are some other halfs if my first pick date is going to be too soon--I'm still trying to figure that out! And, for some additional motivation, my physical therapist invited me to be on his radio show to talk about my weight loss. Last week, we talked about food and how I made food choices for losing the 100 lbs. (Of course, I talked up sparkpeople!) Tomorrow, he wants me to come back (!) and talk about the workout side of it. It's so flattering (nerve-wracking too) but it's great motivation for keeping up the activity and reminding myself that I've come too far to go backwards!!!
