Running with a Cast

Well, after a much smoother night sleeping, I had a lower amount of pain. I ate a great breakfast before I made an attempt to do my 35 minute run. I ran outside at a good window of opportunity. The weather was in the 60's and sunny. It was perfect! I then put my running gear and Garmin on before I went outside.

I struggled a little bit during my run mostly due to the very strong wind I ran against. It slowly easier when I turned around away from the wind. In the end, I was happy to finish.

Mile 1 - 9:23
Mile 2 - 9:29
Mile 3 - 9:28
Mile 0.67 - 6:37 (9:56/mi)

My arm felt a little sore after the run. This is mostly due my arm adjusting to the cast. As for my arm, many of you asked for the cause of the injury. Right now, I do not know how I did it. I am still trying for figure it out. Now I have to wear this cast for three weeks. Two days down now.

I am determined to get my 8 miler tommorow. I can work around the injury and work hard. Nothing scares me! I am strong!

If anyone tells you that you are on the treadmill too long this morning, you can whack them with your cast.
