I saw. I conquered. I ran.
Well, I got my 1st run done in 16 days. I did my best in taking it slow, but I pretty much ran as fast as I was confortable with. The temperatures were very comfortable enough where I ran in just shorts and a long sleeved shirt. How awesome! Well, I decided to run along Lake Harriet for my 1st run, which is 2.79 miles. Not too bad plus the path are very flat and have no holes on it. The run felt very good and comfortable. I focused on running around the lake and returning the pavillion to come the 2.85 miles. I started getting a side stitch with about a mile to go. I just kept on going and did not let it mess with me. When I finished, I walked back and forth to my car before heading to work. My ankle felt really until I received home. I think the extra use with the brake/escalation pedal make it feel overworked. I did put some ice it when I got home and then will put more when I come home tonight. Tommorow I plan to keep it at 2-3 miles again since the weather will be just as warm and taking a break on Thursday. Today's work-out 2.79 mile - run 27:32 9:52/mile - HOLY SHIT!
