5 months later: Return to Running

Filed under: Uncategorized — wayne @ 7:11 pm and

It’s been awhile since my last post.  I met a major milestone today so I thought I’d post something on my blog page. Today I ran 5K on a treadmill without any walk breaks for the very first time.  And so far I’m still in one piece! No aches, no pain!

This past weekend was the Marine Corps Marathon. My girlfriend and I went to the Mile 23 marker and cheered on the runners (especially the slower folks) and supported them by handing out candy, cookies, bananas, and pretzels. Watching all of those runners really got me thinking of how much I missed running. So I made it point to go to the gym tonight and seriously begin on my recovery to race again. I think it may still be awhile before I pursue a marathon. But I definitely want to get back into running 10K’s and perhaps set a goal on running a 10 miler and/or a half marathon. We shall see!

  1. Wayne - Way to go on the 5K! You should be very happy about your progress. And, good for you for cheering on and supporting the marathoners!

  2. Good for you - going back to what you love keeps you going with this damn injury! Best of luck.

  3. great to hear - I am about 7 months out from my ATR and also running at the 5K level. I am glad to see postings from others who are a number of months into their recovery so thanks for sharing! Keep up the good work.
