We went out for our second grad week run and nailed it!!!! Steve was brilliant as ever and was even kind enough to lend me 30 seconds of his time! What a guy! I'm not near a 5K, only 3.84K, but in reality, fair for my short little stubby legs to carry me. The knee held up well with a brace and my feet were not so achy on the bottoms. All in all, my last two runs have went well other then knee issues. Thank you all so much for the concern over my knee, it is not 100% but not aching near like it was. Taking the cold shower/ice/elevation/support advice has helped tremendously!!!
Things are different at the Hall house since we both started C25K, we each have our individual goals which we can still look forward to. We share a common bond of running now, Steve will always gain more distance then me, but I'm okay with that. He can run ahead and come back or we can meet up later. We support each other through the good times and bad times and we LOVE this site! The best thing to come out of our C25K journey is happening on to all of you!
Now on to the biggest change: Date night after starting C25K! Our date night NOW consist of: ice packs, deep penetrating pain relief ointment, various support bandages, cold showers, the list goes on and on... heavy breathing can be heard, but that is just our running/recovery time. Moaning also, last night it was " at what point will we no longer hurt"... I even woke Steve up once to ask him if he would help me roll over.
Soooo, if we stay on track this week...GRAD WEEK! Looks like all of you are invited to a Grad party at the Hall house in the USA on Thursday night! We will leave the light on for you and have ice packs ready!
