It was kinda difficult to get myself going today, but I’m glad that I did. I only ran a 5k, 3.1 miles, but that’s all that was assigned for today anyway.
As I was running today I wondered if 3-5 mile runs would be enough for me if that would happen to be my new restriction. I think that for awhile maybe it would be. I still have a lot of improvement to do with running so I think that I could find many ways to challenge myself initially, but long run I think I would get bored. So we’ll see what happens. For today, I’m just glad that I got myself up and running.
It was a great run. My leg and knees didn’t bother me. Most importantly, no abdominal issues. But that’s not surprising. My problems only seem to occur on runs longer than 5 miles. I pushed myself. Most of the run was at 6.2 mph and then I kicked up a lot for the last 1.10 mile. I shaved some time off of my run Monday. It may only be 19 seconds, but improvement is improvement!
I received some results yesterday as far as the blood work and CT are concerned so I’m hoping to hear from my primary care provider today to see where we will go based on those results. And I still have my GI appointment on Tuesday. In a way it’s overwhelming, but I’m glad it’s all happening so fast. I hate sitting around waiting to see what is going to happen! But I feel better today. A lot. Everything will be okay. No matter what is thrown at me, I’ll find a way to deal. Hopefully all I have to do is drink more water, though .
Thanks for all of the support, friends! You’ve been great! I’ve truly appreciated the messages, comments, and those who see me in person asking how I’m doing. I have the most fantastic people in the world in my life! THANK YOU!!
