The lungs are starting to cooperate

It has now been a few weeks since I have been back seriously running.  If you look back at my post on December 31st, you will see how I was kinda discouraged with how far I had to go.  I still have a long way to go, but I am already starting to see some progress as far as my lungs go.

My first couple runs my lungs were burning quite a bit.  I was discouraged quite a bit following these runs because I used to be able to hit the road for 6+ miles at a faster pace and not really even give thought to my lungs.  I then recall that it has been 7 months since that has happened and a lot of sitting around waiting for my collar bone to heal.

I have been very pleased over the past few days on how far I have already come.  Yes, I still do have a long way to go, but in the baby steps I am starting to get some welcome traction.  If I am able to run what I want to tomorrow I will top 10 miles for the week for the first time since my injury over 7 months ago.

I can feel the cheers as I progress, thanks for reading and the welcome motivation!

  1. I have to admit I've been incredibly impressed with your courage and determination to get back into it. Keep it up!

  2. Thanks Andrew, coming from you that is a hugh compliment!

  3. You are really an inspiration. I think how hard it was for me to be out for eight weeks, but that is really nothing compared to what you suffered. You've done a great job keeping your focus! Now, you just have to keep running! :-) --Alex (aka run350)

  4. Thanks Alex! It was hard, and it is not the easiest to keep focus (esp with the cold weather) but I am going to do it!


  5. Thanks Andrew, coming from you that is a hugh compliment!
