I found my high school track cleats for rehabbing my ankle on the track! It's been over a year since I last ran. Found it, I wrote about June 29, 2014 which was the last time I ran on Lake Merced. I won't forget it, came out limping that day. Shortly after, I went to get an MRI which I wrote about on June 5, 2014 to check on the clicking action, swelling, soreness, and heat that was going on inside my ankle. Found out it was inflamed tissue and that I may have ran on cement a bit too soon and aggravated it. I was definitely nervous. Didn't have an ankle brace either.
I lasted my first lap running ok, after that I alternated running and walking on every lap. I didn't want to overdo it and hurt myself. I was just happy and excited to be back on the track for a run! Did 2 miles to start and started feeling tired at 1 mile point. Giving that it's been over a year since I last ran, I felt great! No pain! Just a bit of soreness but nothing I can't handle. I'll wait a day to rest and continue running. I'm ready for more! So happy!
