It's good to be back


That's not entirely true. Yesterday was my first day of running since injuring my right hamstring at the Rib Run 2 on June 2nd. And while my hamstring was appreciative of the time off, the rest of me wasn't. I ran an easy 3 miles yesterday morning and that wasn't too bad. I ran 11+ minute miles. I stretched my hamstring before running, again at miles 1 and 2 and then afterwards. Today was 5 miles but I ran in the evening which was nice and hot, first day of summer and all. I stopped to stretch a few times but I ran the entire distance. I was hurting though, everything except my hamstring anyway. I'm supposed to run 10 miles on Saturday and I really don't know if that's going to happen. I'll definitely go running in the morning when it won't be as hot. I also run better and have more energy. So fingers crossed all goes well.
