On the upside, my body WAS healing prior to starting these runs - obviously, good enough for me to feel like I could and did run for the first time ever! Even after the first run I felt fantastic, and felt so, so after the second. The third one did me in. So, once I slow down and heal at least I realize I can do it and can't wait to get started back up again. Now to sit still long enough to actually heal.

After a miserable aching day yesterday after my third run, my runs have to hit the pause button for now. I may be trying to do too much too soon just because I feel up to it, and really, I need to slow down and let my body heal. The thing that gets me is, if my body doesn't heal any way, I'm just going to have missed out on what I didn't do and that makes me want to keep going and going, but I can't pretend I'm better than I am (although that confuses me, isn't that type of positive attitude supposed to help you feel better??).
