I'm going to make this post short and sweet today.

I don't want to stir anything up just yet.....

I ran today.
(looks under bed)
For real running.
It was only 2 miles...but it was 2 miles without pain. Two miles of just enjoying the cool (yet very muggy) summer morning air. Two miles knowing that I could run more, wanted to run more, but shouldn't.
I can't push it. I need to start really slow.
I don't know where the pain went.

I don't see it here anywhere.
I have my second Graston appointment this afternoon. Curious to see if he can tell I ran since I was in last time.
It was amazing to get out there....even though it took EVERY. SINGLE. OUNCE. of willpower I had to get out of bed. I've gained about 5 or so pounds since the injury sidelined me. Anxious to get that back off. The skirt I wore yesterday was tighter than it was last time I wore it. Not good.
I run again on Thursday, if not tomorrow. We'll see if I can make it two runs in a row. Will be a record if I do! :-)
2.25 miles, a very slow and cautious 11:43 overall average pace
