I ran last night for the first time in quite awhile (yes, my first attempt at getting my motivation back petered out a bit) and it really felt great. I only did 1.5 miles (.25 warm up and .25 cool down) with one mile of that being the actual run. I was pretty surprised that I was able to do pretty much the whole thing with only a one minute walk break in the middle. It did hurt a bit and I was definitely sucking wind by the end but I was still able to do it and that, for me, was really the most important thing. I have a new training schedule printed and posted to my fridge and I am planning on sticking with it. I have put the P90X training off until I get back into better cardio shape. I was nervous to start it back when I was working out regularly and don't think I would survive (yes, I like to exaggerate...) it right now :). Still, I am just so happy to have my ankle back to full strength, to feel motivated to run again, and to try and get back to the blogging world. I really have missed getting up every morning and reading everyone's blogs, I feel like I have missed A LOT! I am also looking forward to getting in some 5Ks towards the end of summer. Nothing is more discouraging than signing up and training for a race(s) and then having something like an injury take you out. But that's life and all you can do is suck it up, accept it, and move on :). Here's to moving on!!
