Ok, it was slow (very slow) and only two miles, but it DID.NOT.HURT! Woohoo! I had a tiny bit of soreness when I pressed on my achilles after I ran, so I iced it, but it didn’t hurt while I ran. Yay!
I did a short warm-up walking on the treadmill and probably averaged about an 11 minute mile when I was running. I also had the incline set at 0. I hardly felt like I was working out, but my mood improved immediately.
I’m really hoping we’ve turned a corner around here. Shoo seems to be about done with the pink eye and his cold. Jones is done with strep for the moment (still need to get an ENT consult). My new dryer is being delivered on Wednesday (did I mention my dryer died on Saturday evening? Yeah, my daily “screw you”. Lovely.) And I can run again, albeit slowly.
Fingers crossed that the bad karma that’s been hitting us is done. Please?
