One Happy Girl

I've been held hostage from running for 3 weeks.
I was going to try to break free tomorrow and hit the trails but it snowed 4 inches here and I didn't want to be too much of a daredevil. So...Doug was headed to the Y today for a long run and I thought I would take the opportunity to see how my 'ol Achilles was doing.
And...I covered my planned 6 miles!
Overall...it went well. I took walk breaks when I felt any tinge of my ankle and ran at a snail's pace when I wasn't walking. But...I did it!
After 3 weeks of not running...I feel like a million bucks.
I'm icing now and planning on holding off til Tuesday for my next run.
I'm praying March will bring me more than 19 miles...especially since I have 26.2 planned for one day!


  1. Yay for running 6 miles. way to go!

  2. Thanks for your note, much appreciated.

    Congrats on the six miles! You've done a great job of waiting it out and letting your body recover. I'm sure it's going to pay off.
