For the first time in 14 weeks I went for a run. I was incredibly nervous as to what was going to happen, so I committed to run to the corner before giving up. The corner is about 400m away. My thought process was, if I can’t make it 400m, it wouldn’t take long to get back. ha!
I got 400m in and no pain. 1 mile in…no pain! 2miles in….NO PAIN! My back held up and was pain free. Everything else…now that’s a different story. My legs were on fire and my abs felt like they were ripping apart. I may have run a 8:30/9min pace. I know it was a slow pace, but it was trial run and I achieved what I wanted. A pain free run. It’s one more step towards my full return to CrossFit and competing.
My motto: Beast of the East here I come!
