I ran outside today. It was my first run outside in more than a month. And it felt great! I was a bit nervous about leaving the safety and predictability of the treadmill and track, but knew that this was the next step in my recovery. I took it easy and went back to a 3 and 1 workout, and did one of my easy, short routes. I’m pumped that it went well and there was no pain!
3 minute walking warm up
3 minute run; 1 minute walk x 6
3 minute walking cool down
My pace was a bit slower than my last run on the track, but I don’t mind. Because I ran outside! On concrete! Pain free!
And, I finally got to take these babies out for an actual run. Love them!
Next up: Adding in speed intervals. That’ll happen on Wednesday. Stay tuned.
