So after recovering from the ankle injury and not running since December 6th I was cleared by my sports medicine doctor to try out a 10-15 minute run on Thursday and see how the ankle felt. If I had no pain for the next day then I could run with my group on Saturday! Well it went super and I ran with the group today! 36 minutes total - 2.5 miles! It felt so good to be back out there and running! I actually ended up not runnng "with" a pace group but there was a bunch of us out there - so I wasn't really alone, I did go out with our head coach but she turned around early to bring another group in. I hadn't really planned on going out the whole time, but felt so great I did! I cried at the end of my run - it is such a stress relief, I missed it so much and with everything that has been going on, it was so good to have something back that is so important to me!
