Yesterday morning I went out for my second run of “Step 3” in the “return to running” program. I parked at the Green Hills YMCA, and ran through the surrounding neighborhoods. While I didn’t have any pain in my right leg, they did feel very tired from the run and elliptical on Friday. It is amazing to me how much harder a 10-min run / 1-min walk x 3 (Step 3) is than 5-min run / 2-min walk x 4 (Step 2).
Even though I was tired, I still got it done, and finished 4.2-miles in just over 40-minutes (9:33 pace). After the run I went inside the YMCA and did 50-minutes on the elliptical, and then Olivia joined me for an hour aqua jogging in the pool.
We closed out the effort with a yummy brunch at Noshville Deli across street with the Kiddos.
