Back on the horse??
I loved some of the suggestions....day at the spa, pedicure, sleeping in! But instead today I was able to go for my first test RUN. I got a special 24 hour bandage that is pretty cool. The P.T. kind of lifted the band and wraped higher above my knee which he said kind of tricks the I.T. band, taking away the pressure from my knee. Crazy! I woke up so excited to run, but found myself looking for every excuse to prolong leaving the house. I was scared!! Scared that that first step would hurt. Well my first step felt great as did the first mile and a half. It was the last half mile that has me slightly concerned. I did have some discomfort (I don't want to call it pain, because that means I needed to stop) behing my knee. Weird? It felt kind of tight? But I made it home and felt like I could have kept going...but would have worried that the discomfort would turn into something else?? I fell beat up all over so I am having a hard time pin pointed PAIN. My thigh is one big bruise as is my toe. UGH! So I am going to rest and maybe Sunday go for a short run? It will be Father's Day and my 12 year anniversary. I would love the gift of another RUN!
