Running At Last!
Today I went out and ran for 1.5 hours with Paul and Naomi. Naomi is my good friend who paced me at Wasatch last year. I was nervous about my ankle after going for my first official walk- run yesterday after getting my boot off. My ankle is sore and stiff. I took an Advil and iced my ankle pre and post run and it feels okay right now. It was so incredible to be out on the trails again. I just feel a little apprehensive about pushing it too much. Swimming with the Masters have really paid off. I felt like I hadn't missed a day of running!! We will see what happens on a LONG run or a FAST run. I'm sure that will be a different story. I think I will try and go up to the Western States trail on Friday with a few friends. My plan is to just go easy and get some time on my feet. I am excited to get back up there. The weather is so beautiful out that it is hard to stay down for long.
