Walk 'til you run

My last run was 12 days ago. This morning when I got up to run, it was 44 degrees and felt like 39. WOOHOOO!!!! I wore tights.
This was a back to running nothing fancy run, 3.35 miles slowly. I could feel my foot a bit as a started but that's no surprise. I hadn't been up very long and it's usually a bit still in the morning before the blood gets flowing.
I can't say anything extraordinary about this run other than I did it and there was no pain during or after.
I had PT at 10:45 where John put me through the usual routine. I also ended my round of anti-inflammatories. Everything seems to be moving along nicely. He told me on a scale of 0-10, 0 being no pain and 10 being holy crap get me to a hospital, I'm good running to about a 3.
So the plan now is to slowly build back up and see what happens.

YAY!! Funny, I was out in the rain today and thought about you, because the weather looks sucky for a few days so I figured your re-entry would be in crap conditions. Glad to see the joys of running squelched any bother about the weather. Great job, girl! Sounds like your foot is doing what it's supposed to. Couldn't be happier for you, missy.

I'm so sorry that you are having to put off NYCM. That really, really stinks. Like we talked about, though, keep your eye on the prize. Your prize is Boston! I'm sending vibes of great healing and pain-free running your way!

Flo, I just figure this weather is getting me ready for winter training!

I hope the run put a little smile on your face. I'm keeping my fingers crossed I get to hear about you running more. And...I hope Loren liked her coffee!
