So I went running.
The good bits: no knee pain, no ankle pain.
The bad bits: everything else.
It probably wasn’t smart to run with the buggy for my first run in two weeks, but I did. As a result Neon Toddler screamed intermittently for the 2 1/2km I managed. That’s right – just two and a half kilometers. I’m not that concerned about the distance, I’m more happy that I got out. I think the next run will be much better, and the one after that. I will make a decision on Thames Trot soon, but I think I will defer my entry to another race.
The good thing is I have done it. I have run for the first time back, and now I can just keep running. It was funny because I was starting to make excuses not to run – it’s going to be hard, I won’t be able to run a long way, my knee might be sore still. All kinds of things.
I also got my delivery of Tribe Sports gear today! That, in part, prompted me to just get out and go for that bloody run rather than making any more excuses. You can check out the shop here. I will do a review once I have run a bit more in them but I got a pair of capris, a t-shirt and two singlets. Mr. Neon got a pair of shorts, a half-zip top and a t-shirt. We were backers from the Kickstater project that the people at Tribe Sports put together, so we’ve been eagerly awaiting this gear for a while now! It’s exciting that it’s finally here!
Anyway, now I am going to give the Toddler a piece of toast and a bath, and tomorrow I will run again.
