I go back to the start before I lose my mind
Call it day 90 of recovery or day one of running, either way it was a good step in the right direction. I ran one kilometer today on the indoor track. That’s one kilometer more than I’ve run in the past three months. I’m going to be running on the indoor track for the first few weeks for the softer surface and to make sure I don’t roll over my foot.
When I started running today it actually felt a little foreign, but that feeling only lasted 50 meters and then it felt pretty normal. I could feel my knees and lower back, I wouldn’t say they weren’t hurting although they felt as if they were about to hurt. It’s no wonder why many people don’t like running, it’s not comfortable unless you get used to it. When I’m running a lot I can go out for 30km without any discomfort, but the first run in a long time… a different story. And to think that I’m not overweight or out of shape, both of those factors would only increase the level of discomfort.
