because i can

week in review (3/5-3/11):
total miles: 7.50
time spent running: ~ 1 hrs 32 min
avg pace: 12:20
off days: 4

  • mon: off
  • tue: 1mi run, 3' walk/2' run; 2.5mi total
  • wed: off (sore!)
  • thu: off
  • fri: 3' walk/2' run; 2.5mi total
  • sat: off (left shin sore - soo nervous for a shin splint or stress fracture)
  • sun: 0.25mi walk/0.5mi run, repeat; 2.5mi total (fastest "run" of the week!) + 45min of yoga.

easing back into it. the plan is to not run (err, run/walk) two consecutive days for a while. i don't know how long, but i still get out of breath running a half-mile so i know i have a ways to go. of course, i'm just glad to be out there period! i was even excited to do chores around the house over the weekend like cleaning the bathroom and vacuuming under the couch. after months of sitting around in pain/discomfort, doing chores is a treat! (don't worry josh i'm sure that won't last long).

just spicing things up with a photo.

my sister taunted me into doing the broom trickjosh i had to explain to her that it had nothing to do with the planets. when i showed my standing broom skills to josh he said "it would be more impressive if you were actually using it".

    1. It wasn't that hard actually. It took a few tries of holding it up and letting it go (and it falling over) but then it just stood in place. Kind of weird.

  11. I can hear the happiness in your words! Yay that you're feeling better!
    It's amazing how we tend to take little things like sweeping the floor for granted and when we're to unhealthy or in to much pain to do these basic movements we truly miss them and want to be able to! It's never easy when are liberties are taken from us unwillingly.
    Continued good luck and I'm still working on things from this end!

    That is a great broom trick! I need to practice that :)

  13. How do you do the broom trick? That's pretty cool. I'm almost certain I don't have a broom though. Does a Swiffer work? :)

    YAY, so happy to see that 7 number in the mileage...and weekly - woohoo!

  15. I'm looking for the fishing line that is holding up the broom but my eyes aren't so good.

    So happy that you are getting out there. That is awesome.
