I promised I would be back with new, happy things. It's a fresh week, and I am putting all of last week long behind me.
Since being cleared to start running again a few weeks ago, I have been on a roll. My leg is feeling great, which makes me feel great. And the ability to get my feet on the pavement, that just makes things that much better. The pavement part helps too- we've had some ridiculous January-February weather this year. I ran on Super Bowl Sunday in capris and short sleeves. Yesterday, I don't think it reached 30 degrees.
On to the rest of the good.
1. I hit 2 miles.
2. Before heading out for more than 1 mile, it was time for new shoes!
3. Back to running, I can finally get to wearing all the running clothes that have been hanging out with the tags still on.
4. I planked for over 4 minutes!
5. I joined a gym. More precisely, I joined about 8000 gyms. I found an absolutely fantastic deal/membership through my health insurance that lets me join a bunch of different gyms for one super-duper low price. I only joined one near my house so far, but I'm excited to check out about a half dozen more between my house and work. With the 20+ mile each way commute, it would be nice to have a place close to work or at least in between.
