I ran for the first time today since my injury, and I felt good! I only did about 2 miles, but I didn’t have any pain in my foot. I was so excited to not feel any pain because I have been soooo worried about this. I was all smiles when I came back home. Cali was too 🙂
It felt a little strange at first to run, because I hadn’t done so in a while, and I’d been wearing the cumbersome boot for over a week. So, I felt a little lopsided! But after the first mile or so I started to feel better, although I was thinking about my foot the whole time. Luckily my foot felt fine! Hopefully I will be able to say that after 26 miles!
I’m probably only going to run a few more times before we leave for NYC next week. On the days I don’t run I plan to use the elliptical at the gym. All of the “experts” I have talked to assured me that I will be fine for the race, even with my lack of running recently.
Thank you so much for all of the positive thoughts that have been sent my way!
