It was a great thing this morning…

… I ran. Like most of the 5 mile route.

My Quads ache. This is great! This means my knees can actually support a multi-mile run again. The average was a 10.21 min/mi which would have been sad to report previously, yet now, it’s exciting! A few of the miles were under 10 minutes, woo-hoo!

In case you’re wondering, I’ve been nursing knee issues for six-months now. Doing all the rehab I could and trying my patience more than it probably should. Yes, I’ve made some over zealous mistakes along the way, but things have been improving during the short and slow runs, so today I just kept going.

I did stop frequently to examine the knee and leg situation, just to be cautious.

I must say that it was so freeing to complete an actual run!

With our current social restrictions it’s great to have my country run time back. And yes, I’ll take it one day at a time plus I’ve gotten used to the bicycle now, so that will remain in the mix.
