I ran 2 miles a few days after my initial run. All went well and my pace was quicker.
The next weekend found me stuck on stupid, as I ran at an easy pace for about 4.2 miles. The cardio part was fine, but it was too much of a jump in distance (and yes, I am familiar with the 10% rule). I followed the run up by going to work and carrying a sprayer on my back for a few hours. That night, I was in a good deal of pain. So, I iced and took a week off.
I went out this morning and ran 2.5 miles. It felt great and everything went well.
I hope to get out there again in a few days. For now, I want to keep the distance under 3 miles.
It's wonderful to be a runner again!
