|Getting Ready to Tackle these Trails|
I did it!I tackled my very first post-op run. It was a humbling and horrible 3 km (1.75 miles). Everything is tight and sore. My chest ached the whole time. My legs feel weak and my muscles are like jelly. My endurance - that I worked so hard to build up - is shot. And I huffed and puffed the entire run....
But DAMN it felt good to be back out there!
|Breaking in my new Badass sneaks!|
It is hard to start over. And today was probably the toughest 3 km of my life - as much mentally as physically. But I am trying to remember...
I don't want to think about the 6 weeks of training I have lost, or the strength and endurance I used to have. Today is about being grateful for where I am now and dreaming of the future. I am healthy. I am happy. And I am driven. All that I have done this year - all that I have gained (a serious love of running) and lost (my boobs) have brought me to this point. I have big plans and now is right on time!
