Well yesterday I ran my first 5k since my knee surgery in February. I didn't do too bad considering I haven't run that far since the beginning of January, and I haven't been running that much in the last few weeks. (After I over did it two weeks ago.)
My time was 33:35, which is about 5 minutes slower than I was running in the fall, but I am glad that I got through it all and didn't have to stop. Maybe I am getting tougher mentally, thanks boot camp!
The plan now is to run a half in Tulsa the end of October. I've got six months to get ready. It is a good thing, since Stacy looks to have a stress fracture in her foot. She saw her doctor this morning and will have an MRI on Wednesday. Could mean six to eight weeks in a boot and only cross training during that time. It's a good thing we have time!
All in all, I am glad to be back, sort of. My knee held up well and I don't have any trouble with it today. I think I'll do some cross training in the morning and go back to the running group tomorrow night. It should be sprints, which means shorter distance, which should be good.
