For the first time in 5 whole days I got to run this morning, and it went well.  I was able to run 4 miles this morning along with one huge HILL.  It was a fantastic run.  I was so excited to get back out and hit the road that I almost couldn't stand it.  I went to the steps this morning but I didn't run, I just walked around the top to get warmed up for my run. 

We set off on our run and I was able to get over 2 miles before having to take my first walk break.  The run was a bit slower than normal today because I was a little bit timid at first but the longer I ran the more comfortable I felt doing it.  It was like riding a bike.  Towards the end my foot started hurting so the hope of 5 miles became 4 but it was still a great run. 

I am going to be running again tomorrow, just a few miles again, nothing crazy.  I have to get my miles in somewhere this week.  Hopefully next week I will be back to 100% and be able to get my miles in in the 4 days I have planned to run. 

Now I am home laying on the couch with a little bit of ice on the leg before its time to go to work.  I was hoping to take a little tiny nap before work but I am so excited about my run I cant hardly even lay here, I wanna go out and run some more.

I think this is a positive to a few rest days.  The weight gain is a negative but the ability to run again makes it all worth it.

Yea for running!! I was looking at your stats and don't know why I never noticed them before. But we are like the same person. I started at 323 and I am currently at about 235ish. Not to mention, the running! Weird! Keep up the good work!
