i found one

i ran a mile on monday 🙂 my first mile since the 50. i’m not sure i really should have. but i needed to ~ mentally. it was at the gym. on the treadmill. a slow 9 minute pace. but nevertheless it was a run!

my knee hurt a little but more achy than painful. there was no sharp pain at least which was great. it did feel a little weak and i know longer mileage isn’t happening any time real soon but i’m aiming to try again at the gym this afternoon. might even bump up to a mile and a half if it feels ok.

i really am trying to behave and let myself heal fully before i push too hard again. but #*!@ i need to run. my head is getting way too cluttered with crap. work. dating. money. i tried riding saturday. 33 miles that failed to offer clarity on any of it. don’t get me wrong, it was a great ride but it never offers the escape i need.

soon. i hope. one will become two. then maybe three. baby steps. i just need to remember not to go from one to fifty this time!

    I know it doesn’t fully compare to running, but I find that swimming laps (30+ laps is when it starts to feel similar) really helps clear my head in a similar way to running (that riding/spin does not). Maybe worth a try, especially since it’s so low impact.

      i’m not a fan of swimming. maybe it’s because it’s my weakest link and i have to concentrate so much that it’s just not enough of a natural rhythm i can lose myself in it.

    I so relate to this. Not being able to run hurts in ways non-runners don’t understand. I celebrate your one mile with you and wish you the speediest recovery so you can get back outside — take it slow.

      you are right! non-runners will never understand. thanks for the well wishes. i promise i’ll ease back in this time.
