Today was awesome! I lifted hard, and I ran for the first time in weeks since my knee injury! I could not help myself today. I felt as if I was going to burst if I did not run, I miss it so much. I only ran for 11 mins with a high speed of 5.5 mph, so I kept it slow and steady but I was so excited to be running and best of all - without pain! Hopefully tomorrow I can do this again and slowly increase my time as long as the swelling keeps down and I am pain free.
