I had met with an accident on March 9 which resulted in a wrist bone dislocation and while the healing process will take north of 3 months atleast, I am very glad I could come back and may I say with a bang! Things that helped me:
1. I strictly followed the doctor's advice about taking enough rest initially, and he did say he didn't have a problem with me running after a week or so, if I felt alright.
2. I kept on waking up daily at 6am and continued on with my morning walks, and didn't let my body forget how it felt to be just out there. This also helped me explore different routes nearby my place of living.
3. After 11 days, I started with a run from week 3 and found that I was comfortable, and also my breathing had improved from before. I did a run from week 4 next, which is where I'd left of before my accident, and it felt good.
4. After a day's gap I started with week 5 runs, and I am extremely glad to be announcing that I have already entered week 6 and ran the first run today.
Immensely thankful to all ye wonderful people and your motivation. I read up on a handful of injury related posts (a lot of older posts) and how people surged forward after.
it's all in the cerebrum!
P.S: Excited about the new pair of shoes that just arrived yesterday
