Follow your heart.

Follow your heart. I intend to run however. All day and all night. I don’t ever want to stop. Running is my addiction. My drug. What keeps me strong. It keeps me from cracking. It’s great to have Teddy to keep me company. Had an awesome hard 3 miles this morning. Starting over sucks but it’s better than not being able to @altrarunning

Making progress!

Making progress! 3 miles done today. My brain is telling me to go further and harder and I’m trying to tell it to settle down. We’ll get there. I guess it thought the 7 weeks was a vacation. I wish it was. I think about how dark those weeks were and how it sucked in so many ways. Running is what keeps my head cleared. By the end, I’m too exhausted to battle anything else so the mind relaxes. It feels really good to exhaust the mind and to be back on the road. Huffing and puffing. Lots of huffing because my legs have lost the endurance. 35 days till my first race back. Philly RnR here I come! Teddy can’t wait to travel again

Teddy and his shenanigans.

Teddy up to his shenanigans. 2 miles again today. Little bit faster pace. Recovery is hard that’s for sure. Just so damn happy to be running again. I didn’t need to lose it to know what I had. I cherish every step I get to make. I enjoy the sweat stinging my eyes. The heavy breathing and constant struggle to keep going. I don’t ever want to be kept away from running again. Not sure I’d survive

Teddy and I are back!

Teddy and I are back! Even at a sloooooow pace and only 1 mile. I was super nervous and wasn’t entirely sure how I would feel but there was no pain only fatigue and even hours later still no pain. I need to continue to work on fixing mobility and flexibility. That will be key. 6 weeks out and it never felt so great to sweat and lace up
