So I've run twice in the last 2 days. Not far and not fast (not that I'm ever fast) but I ran. Day one Friday 1/2 mile in I could feel my "cheek" wasn't pain but I could feel it for sure, by mile 1 1/2 I felt tightness in my outer thigh. Called it good at 2 miles. Today I went out and had virtually no pain. There were just a couple of times (mostly on hills both up and down) I did take it easy and walked for 30 seconds every 1/2 mile. I did 3 miles and for the most part felt great! I'm thinking of possibly one more ART session but I'm not sure if I need it or if I just need a little more time for the inflammation or irritation or whatever to heal. One of the great parts about getting to run today was that I was able to wear my new shoes. Even though I've had them for about a month I've only put 15 miles on them.....yea I've been running a bunch. I seriously love how I feel when I run in these shoes. Even if I'm not any faster, I feel faster. My feet are just so light it's like they float.
Because I am cautiously optimistic I signed up for this and this.
