So..... I headed to the gym this morning, for the third day this week. Monday and Tuesday I just spent some time walking briskly on the treadmill and riding the stationary bike. This morning I hit the treadmill, walked for a few minutes and then took a deep breath. I slowly, nervously, moved the speed up to a comfortable slow pace and hit the gallup. The most difficult and uncomfortable part was that I firmly planted my left arm to my side so I would not swing it as you always do when running. I allowed my other arm to move freely, and I was surprised to find that it was not as bad as I had anticipated. It is a bit uncomfortable and I will not be able to go too fast or long like that, but it is a step in the direction that I want to go.
That is it for now, I look forward to writing more about my running, and less about why I can't run.

Bravo, Tim! Getting that first workout done, however cautious & careful, is a great first step in the right direction. You must feel so much better now that you can exercise again!ReplyDelete
