one month and one day after running the Cherry Blossom 10-miler in my pink VFFs and thrashing my heel/foot/ankle/whatever...I ran again.
sure, it was only for a tenth of a mile. sure, I was really only running because the dog was excited and would otherwise have yanked my arm out of its socket. sure, my ankle twinged for a bit afterwards (faded after 4 blocks, never rose above the "twinge" level). and sure, I was in my flat unsupportive boots that I'd worn to work. but! I mother-effing ran, people.
maybe tomorrow I will try a real run -- of like .2 miles maybe! -- in running clothes and everything! (my next problem is quickly going to be one of finding new running shoes when I can't really...run, yet. hrmm.)
also? I took the puppy out for a walk after work even though I just wanted to stuff food in my face and collapse on the couch. yay I got outside, yay goals!
