Last night was the workout with the track club. We ran just about 8 laps, jogged on the turns, ran on the straight-away. (The above stats include the warm up run.) I met several new people who I was running next to in the warm up, then reunited with more people I knew from last year who weren't at the first meeting on Saturday. As for the workout, I have a lot to work on with posture and NOT LIMPING WHILE RUNNING. That's going to be tough because I can't see myself run to make the correction. One lady asked me if I was hurting. It doesn't hurt at all, it's just a little stiff. It wouldn't be stiff if I could have a massage just prior to running - just like in physical therapy, but that's never going to happen. I know it's going to take time for everything to be/appear "normal" again. Just so everyone knows, I am not going into this marathon training/running thing with reckless abandon. My doctors all know. I'll also be visiting the chiropractor in about a week.
