Recovery is officially done.
After a difficult time with the incision healing, which included the stitches staying in for an extra week, and round of antibiotics and a full round of physical therapy, I have been cleared to run.
Not run like you're thinking. A combo of walking a minute and running a minute for up to 15 minutes and move on from there.
Honestly, it sounds a little dreadful. Remember when you started running and it was hard? That's where I am. I haven't run in months. I am truly starting at square one.
There is a long road ahead of me. And exactly eight weeks until I race again. I have selected the Mt. Dora 5K on December 16th. Time to get steppin'!
I'm slightly afraid to register, but I have some time before the price increase. Man, starting over sucks, but I'm more appreciative that you can ever know that I can still run!
Tomorrow the running begins. I'm excited to get back to it!
