6 miles!!!

Just wanted to thank you all for your feedback and suggestions! This stupid injury gets me down, and I'm not normally one to let things get to me. It's just frustrating and scary after all I've been through with the other leg...

I had my first A.R.T. session on Wed. Dr. Sherman was very encouraging. I was pretty sore that night and even into yesterday, but adding in ice massages on the knee and up the IT band, today was successful!

I went out thinking I'd make it maybe 30mins. I never had pain, I just kept trotting along, always staying close to my house. I just got back after a successful 60min run! WOOT!

I was slow.... or I ended really slow rather. Guess the week of being sick took it's toll. My HR was 10beats higher (hence slowing down up to a min/mile at times), but I'll take that any day, as long as I can run!!

I'm off to go for my second session with Dr. Sherman! I hope things keep going this way :-) Maybe someday Momo & I can run together again!!!
