Finally!

Saturday, March 31, 2012

At last! I ran today, albeit on the treadmill and alternating walking and running. It felt wonderful to perspire emoticon.
It has been a month since I had to lay off due to ankle injuries. Hallelujah, there was absolutely no pain today! I won't be able to participate in the race I was training for, but I'm okay with that. Today's satisfaction was equally due to accomplishing this small feat and knowing that I did not succumb to a defeatist's attitude - ie, not resume the exercise. Hopefully, I'm back in the saddle for good.

    I know how hard you were working at the running. Kudos for not letting it keep you from going back to exercising. I know (personally, lol) how hard it is to want to do the exercises and knowing you can't because of the injury. All this keeps reminding me that I am no longer 30 but a senior with older bones etc. Bummer! emoticon Mel

    Sweat IS sweet! Congratulations on working through the injury and getting "back on the horse" emoticon

    Too bad about the race but, in many ways, what you've already done is just as significant. I see many more races in your future!
