Guess what I did this morning?! I’ll give you a hint…
I went running for the first time post-surgery! To summarize, I severed my EHL tendon in my right foot in August, and had to have it surgically repaired. I was cleared for exercise about 2 months ago, but I was told not to run until the end of January. Well, today felt like the day so I gave it a go.
I kept things pretty simple, truth be told I didn’t even break a sweat. I did a 5 minute warm-up (walking), then did 5 intervals of 2 minutes of running (at a very slow pace) followed by 3 minutes walking. Afterwards I didn’t feel ANY pain – which is great news! I am really fighting the urge to do too much too soon, but the last thing I want to deal with is another injury.
I missed you, running shoes!
