So this happened... never have I been more grateful for my new awesome couch than this moment. #brokenfootrecovery

Those, my friends, are running shoes. Tonight, they got to run! First workout in my official return to running program is complete! Realized how hard it is to run again. Stride length, glute involvement, push off, hip maintenance, oooooof, it's a lot. Learning to run again is so different than starting to run because you know so much more, and want to do so much more. #runner #brokenfootrecovery #returntorunning #runwalkprogram

This is how many miles hubby walked this past week. I'm probably 5 miles behind him. No wonder my foot is swollen and in pain. 😩 #TooMuchVacation #BrokenFootRecovery #DisneyIsAFootKiller #walking

I totally get that a sub-nine minute mile is not the least bit impressive for most people, but coming off of a broken foot recovery, I'm pretty happy about it today. #runmamarun #running #brokenfootrecovery #mapmyrun

Sometimes you gotta get moving, even if it hurts a little. Beautiful day for delivering (husband - wife team). #gettinginshape #brokenfootrecovery #fedexfamily


Two big deal things happened on this run. One, I wore spandex running shorts for the first time in nearly a year! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚ Two, I ran 5 miles! I'm not going to talk about how many times I stopped, because the important part is that I got back going each time! My splits were super consistent (9:48, 9:46, 9:49, 9:49, 9:51) and that felt really good to push those paces. I'm tired for sure, but feeling good about this one! πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘πŸΌ

This probably would have been my best run in 10 months, except I got chased by TWO dogs who were obviously very unhappy for me to be anywhere close to their house 😳 I legit thought I was going to be attacked. πŸ™ˆ Luckily, their person came out after about 20 seconds and yelled at them. πŸ‘πŸΌ I turned around immediately, sprinted the next half mile or so, then stopped thinking I was going to puke. My heart was racing so hard! I didn't take my watch so I don't know exactly how far I went or my pace, but I'm ok with that. It felt strong, and that's what matters!

In my last post, I said 3 months was the longest I had ever taken off running, but on my run today, I realized that isn't true. My senior year of college, I got a stress fracture during track season. I was burned out and disappointed in how I finished my career. I took almost a whole year off running. Then one day, my uncle asked me to join his @cascaderelays team, and having no idea what I had gotten myself into, I said yes. I started training the very next day, and that passion for running was ignited all over again. That race kept me motivated through so many running struggles. I'm grateful for the friends and memories I've made in the last 8 years of running Cascade Lakes Relay. It's my current motivation for persisting through recovery. T-26 days!

Y'all, I feel every bit as tired as I look. πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ (A newborn and 3 year old will do that to you! πŸ‘¦πŸΌπŸ‘ΆπŸΌ). Today I stepped up my game and added a little more distance to my run. To be honest, that last mile felt pretty rough, but it feels good to know I can do it! I ended with 10:41, 10:08, and 10:03 miles and feel good about those paces right now. I have 5 weeks until my first race post foot injury and baby!

Practice PFT - I've proven I can pass in the required 14mins. About to be IR current again pending my medical on Thursday. Screw you foot formerly known as broken. Watch this space on 7 July!! #fitnesstest #raaf #running #brokenfootrecovery

After 6 weeks sitting on my fat ass I'm so happy to know my work trousers still actually fit me!#celebratingwithaselfie #1weektogo #brokenfootrecovery #almostreadyforwork #brokenfoot #healingwell #prettyinpink #wavyhair #letsdoit

Running without foot pain is awesome, but it is so hard now. Couldn't run 5 miles without taking a walk break half way through... but, the only way to improve is to keep running so I will persist

Today has been an amazing amazing day. Not only did I PB my #cleanandjerk by 2.5kg (now at 47.5kg), I ran properly for the first time in six months. I attempted this a few weeks ago, shuffling 400m for a class warm up. Today, I ran and although it was slow, it was consistent.
Now, to do enough to pass my PFT in June!

.................... DREAMING πŸ–
Dreaming of the day I can SUP again, but in the meantime happy sitting here watching the waves

Continuing the tradition of #weeklyleap with my goofy dance family in the background.
May all your leaps be pointed, turned out, and several feet off the ground
