I finally got to have a Tuesday Night club run.
My Physical Therapist prescribed only a 5 minute run just to see how it feels.
A few months ago when we started to get back to running my left knee began to ache. After a month or so of treatment the knee is mostly better.
So I went from sore Achilles and heels to less sore Achilles, knees and added a sore knee.
Over all, things are getting better but 5 minutes was about right for tonight.
5 Minute Tuesday Night Club Run
When it takes me more time to get ready for a run than actually running, it kind of feels like a waste of time.
But when the run is therapeutic, it is a necessity. Running for a half hour or for a 5K would have been a mistake.
My 5 minute Tuesday Night club run was therapeutic in more than just the physical way.
Seeing my friends and having a wave and a smile as I headed back to the barn was really nice. It’s hard to explain the comfort I felt being out for a run with friends. Even if I was heading back and in the opposite direction.
So, my Tuesday night run wasn’t very long or strenuous, but it was worth the time it took to get there.
As always, I’m planning to get back to regular running. I’d like to run some 5K and 10K races this summer and perhaps run a half in the fall. Perhaps the BAA Half Marathon.
But recovery is a one step at a time process that requires patients and dedication to that process.
Run well My Friends,
