I waited a few days to post about this, but here goes. I have run THREE times in the past week pain-free! The orthopedist said that I could try a short run half way through the month and see how it felt.
Since I am taking baby steps, I ran one mile last Wednesday, Friday, and this past Sunday. I am not even looking at my watch—just moving at a comfortable pace.
As I ran, I kept waiting to feel that little niggle, but it wasn’t there. I am crossing my fingers and hoping this is it. I am going to increase my mileage in a painfully slow manner, so as not to reactivate the tendonitis. I am also not overstretching, which I have read can also aggravate tendoinitis,
I was happy to have a few short runs while I was down on the Cape—you simply can’t beat the scenery along the water. I ran the beginning of my usual route along Surf Drive. On Sunday, the water was so glassy and calm.
Later that day, we took a stroll through Spohr Gardens to see if the daffodils were out in full force—not quite yet, but it was still beautiful. Then we hit the Knob for a little hike out to the point. Apparently the morning was so beautiful that a lot of others had the same idea! We passed a number of other people on our way out and back.
I was sad as I headed back over the Bourne Bridge. I miss my sister and grandmother already—I miss the Cape a lot too! Every time I go back, I realize how much I love it there. While I never took it for granted that I grew up in such a beautiful place, I find myself missing it even more lately.
Hope everyone had a great weekend. What did YOU do?
