So this week I got in 4 runs, Yea !!! The best part is I felt like running more but did not as I knew I needed to cool my jets as I am only 4 weeks out from my surgery. I can say that on each run I felt good and relaxed.
Today I went out with Sonya, Paul and Nick. Sonya was looking to get in 2 hours so she started a little before us as Paul and I only wanted 45 min's to 1 hour. Nick was looking for 1 1/2 hours so he was planning on added on with Sonya after Paul and I dropped off. The footing was pretty good I thought. I was thinking it was going to be much worse but the little snow we got was nice as it stuck to the ice. It also helped that I had put 10 screws in each shoe. We kept the pace easy and also kept up a good conversation. Nice to be out with people !!! When all was said and done Paul and I had 1 hour and 1 min on the clock. I am guessing like 8 miles. The longest yet for me !!
Put this with my run on Friday night where I ran my 5 mile loop in 36 min's and felt easy made me feel good this week about things. I am looking forward to starting with a physical therapist on Tuesday and continuing my journey to building a more perfect runner out of me.
The week ended with 23 miles on 4 runs. It is a start.
