Today I did something I haven’t done since October 10, I ran.  I didn’t think I was going run until this spring but wanting to run is like an itch that needs to be scratched.  I wasn’t going to go hard or far, I just wanted to test out my foot and IT band to see how they felt.

I wore my squishy shoes that I got for my foot this summer to see how they worked when I ran (forever a scientist!)


My IT band was tight at first but after the first 10min it had warmed up.  My foot did the same thing, but after the IT band stopped or I didn’t notice it until then.  Once I stopped neither one hurt but I got out the foam roller and just pressed it against my IT.


Hurts so good.  Like a deep tissue message.

So, how far did I go?


Mile 1: 8:31

Mile 2: 8:13

I am not going run more than once a week and I am starting to strength train, which is more important in being able to run that I am giving it credit.

The upcoming year will involve – swimming, strength, yoga and a small amount of running.
