Today I am thankful I started running again after two weeks and still was able to run 2.1 miles in 31 min. I am also thankful for what helped me get started running. couch to 5k My sis- n- law, Barb, did this a few years ago. I thought to myself i have always wanted to run but running anywhere was tiring. I tried cross country in high school. I have always admired marathon runners. Then I tried it myself. Then after two weeks I my knees. I pulled some ligaments. Then I found out I was pregnant with Charlotte. So after she was born, after my six weeks. I decided to give it a go again. I wore knee braces to make sure I didn't cause damage again. The first three weeks were torture. I hated it but you know me with a challenge. I had to complete it to say I did it. Then I was going to stop. I then started week 4 and liked the way I felt while running. I have been doing it ever since. I don't run 3 miles but I run 2.1 and I am good with that. (This ties in with my challenge next month to run every day for 30 days) So for now I am going to be doing every other day.
