This is the face of someone who just ran a mile for the first time since January 30th!
I took it super slow on the first half, stopped and stretched and ran the second half pretty quickly – much faster than I was planning on.
Split 1: .50 @ 5:42
Split 2: .50 @ 5:06
Total: 1 mile: 10:48
My knee feels good. I stretched and foam rolled and I’m about to ice, just in case. My only problem was breathing. Honestly, after 2 and a half weeks off I wasn’t expecting to get such an epic side stitch. Note to self: remember to breathe when running.
Saturday I’ll try to go back out and do a “long run” of 1.5 miles. Do you have weekend work out plans? I hope everyone enjoys this awesome early spring!
