Continuing the ice pack and compression on my IT Band. I decided to go into our parking garage on my lunch break and do some very slow jogs of about 20 yards. Legs feels pretty good and called it quits after a couple times down and back. Going to monitor the swelling and pain but really excited that I can get out and take a bike ride tonight. The down time has been killing me and I just need to take a slow road back to my activities.
Do you find yourself celebrating like crazy when you have small break throughs? What was your last small accomplishment that you celebrated?
Plan is to bike a few miles this evening. Fingers are crossed.
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
