Week 2 Of the Recovery Plan And I'm Walking and Running Pain Free
Sorry for being so MIA recently. Lil Man not going to preschool has really thrown off my groove. How did I manage before preschool?!? But also, Hubby being home has changed our family routine also. Oh oh, and add in Mother Nature (hello sub zero temps). So my life has been a little haphazard lately.
But, Lil Man went back to school yesterday. Hubby is back to a normal work routine. And it appears that Mother Nature felt the need to dump a little snow today, but is warming up to an all day rainfest tomorrow. So things are returning to normal.
I've been trying to follow the 'recovery' plan as much as possible. I haven't been following it to the letter, but I would say at least 95% which for me is pretty good!
I moved this Sunday's workout to yesterday. It was my 2nd run outside in the cold. I walked a little less than I was supposed to, and I ran a little more then prescribed, but overall, it went ok. I got in 4 miles.
I could feel a little pulling on the inclines (this was my first time to run with some inclines). I'm able to walk today WITHOUT pain. And I did my 3 miles of power-walking on the treadmill without any difficulty.
So I'm hoping that when I get the next couple of weeks of my recovery plan that it will be less walk and more run. I don't mind walking days (like today... where today was just walking). But this walk so many minutes, run so many minutes gets to me mentally. (and it feels like I just get started when I have to walk and then I get super cold before it's time to run again). But we'll see. I know that I don't want to do too much too soon. So I'm trusting 'the plan'.
But I'm definitely happy to see some progress with the injury recovery!
