I took an easy run on Sunday after 4 weeks of resting my knee, and it wasn't too bad. I stayed in an easy pace and only ran a few 5 minute intervals, then a few shorter intervals, and then walked back home. Knee didn't bother me ~ Yay! I started back walking on the treadmill last night since I can't run my neighborhood in the dark - at least not safely. It will take a while to get back to where I was, but not as long as I had thought. I do need to get a new pair of running shoes though. The pair I bought back in July just isn't the right fit for my skinny feet and narrow heel.
Getting back on the straight and narrow eating path will not be easy either. I let the stress of the last few months get to me and started eating my old higher fat and calorie diet. I know what I have to do...just need to have the strength of mind to do it!! Wish me luck.
