2.14 Miles in 23:32
Mood: Finally back on the road. (With training wheels)
I'm back, baby! Two miles is pretty pathetic, but since it's been over a month since I ran, I'm taking very small steps to get back to where I was. It's going to take some time. After blowing up my left calf muscle, I took a month and two days before this run and my conditioning has not improved. Yikes, I got tired quickly, and had to take a LOT of walking breaks, and I did two laps around Wash Park (a 2.5 mile loop) in order to get 2.14 miles. So...I've got a ways to go, but it felt good to actually run again, even if it was herky jerky and my right knee felt some twinges, and I was unable to really go. At least I was out there trying again. My calf felt a little tight at the end, but we're going to slowly get back to normal. Can't start out running eight miles right away!
AND! I managed to take a terrifying picture of a blood soaked head and torso hanging from the eves of someone's million dollar home in the Wash Park neighborhood. Halloween has been over for two weeks...now you're just being creepy.
