Yesterday was a very big day for me, yesterday I ran five consecutive miles! I promise I won't keep posting about these milestones every time they happen, but five miles means that I have officially graduated from my R2R plan!
Back in December the doc said that when I hit 5 miles, I was officially left to my own devices. No more having to stick to the strict three day per week, non-consecutive running regimen, with walking required before/after and only half mile increases each week. Nope, from here on out I am allowed pure, unadulterated running to my hearts content! I'm back you guys!!! Ok, so I've been back for awhile, but this graduation makes it truly official.
Yesterday morning I had a knowing smile on my face as I set out to run my old five mile neighborhood loop, one I haven't run in over a year! The best part was that when I finished, I felt like I could've gone further! It was such a wonderful feeling and I'm just so freaking grateful and excited to be at this point in my recovery.
I hope everyone else had a wonderful weekend of running too! If you didn't, please don't forget that even the bad runs are better than none at all!
