Yes, half marathon training has begun and 2 snowstorms have happened as well.
- Sun – 4 miles
- Tues – 3 miles
- Thurs – 3 miles
- Today, Sat – 5 miles
But I successfully ran every other day… 11 weeks to go!!
Last night was my annual tennis party…it was fun but I over ate again!!
This morning I slept in and barely made it through my run before the snowstorm. I had planned to go the Nisky bike trail (the scene of the accident) but decided to stay local due to the impending snowfall.
I went to the same neighborhood but ran in a different direction. I didn’t wear my Yak Trax but stayed in the road looking for dry turf and watching for black ice.
And I succeeded but after 3 miles my stomach started growling. I haven’t done a long run in a year so I need to remember to drink water and bring some Gu.
I went back to my car and got some money and headed off to the coffee shop.
But I left the coffee shop to this:
and today is my ONE YEAR Anniversary…a year ago today, I fell during a 10 mile run. I slipped on the ice and broke my ankle in several places & had surgery. I didn’t run for 5 months.
I wasn’t sure I would get through it but I did.
Yes many people said to give up running. I knew that I would not.
I am running again. I may never get the speed back but I am running again!!
To celebrate, I ran today and I even wore almost the same outfit.
Happy Running! Have you ever had a run-threatening injury?
