I put in a very light run. I went with a friend and got to talking, and forgot to turn on the wireless run tracker. It was a slow jog. I normally don't talk and run and the same time. I probably put in just under 2 miles. I also did some yoga type stretches and several unweighted squats.

Today I'm officially back!!!!! I did a real run today. It wasn't real fast but I did it and I remembered to turn on the wireless run tracker. Strangely enough, my first mile was much faster than my last, and that's usually the other way around. My first mile was in 9:53, and that included waiting for traffic to pass. I didn't punch my run because my neighborhood is very hilly and I wanted to make sure I didn't hurt anything, seeing how this was my real first day back to running, real running and not feeling ill. The run yesterday was at my friend's pace so it more like a light warm-up jog, plus I was able to talk the whole way. Yes, yesterday's run was something but not what I needed to be doing. It's also gorgeous outside today. The clouds burned off early so the skies are blue and crisp. It's not hot yet, but I'm guessing that's just around the bend. It feels good to "feel good!"
Someone posted this on Muscletank.net. I thought I'd share. It's an ad for Nike Plus Viral, but I think this sums up running for a lot of people! LOL.
I'm Not A Runner
