Yes. That's right, my doctor cleared me for running and other such activities as long as I don't lift more than 40 pounds for the next month. Which, won't be a problem.
I couldn't wait for my running buddy. Scratch that, I was too nervous to run with her cause I knew this first time would be mostly walking...I would be embarrassed. So I ran with my hubby, 1.63 miles in 21:52. Not a PR my any means but it's definitely a start!!!!
So, can I just say for a moment, that my husband does not run. But he kicked my a%$ today. He was just jogging along at 9:00 pace "Trying to slow down" but it was hard for him to go much slower because of his "longer stride". Ugh.
But, it's a start and I can't wait for tomorrow to try to run more during my run than I did today. There was a lot of walking involved. I think it may have been because a) I haven't run in over 7 weeks and b) Brian was running faster than I'm used to when I'm in shape let alone now.
Maybe my running buddy will have time to squeeze in a run before her vaca... maybe?
Get ready for more posting about running people, this is going to happen.
