Time Flies

Well the old saying is true. Time does fly by when you are having fun! Almost a whole month has gone by since my last post. I have been released to run and have done a few half miles in the past two weeks. My quickest half mile time so far has been 5:07 and last night I ran a whole mile! My timing is nowhere near where I want it, but I am out there and I am completely enjoying the feeling of running again!

Next weekend is the big trip to Orange Beach and The Color Run (or the Color Walk/Jog for me)! I am excited about getting back out there and actually doing a "race" but am super glad that they do not time this one! I know my competitive side would come out and I would push myself way too hard. So for my girls going with me, I will meet y'all at the finish line! : )

I have certainly learned to listen to my body and a little about patience during this trial in my life. A lot of people say to push through the pain and keep going. Well I'm here to tell you I did that a few times and the pain got worse. If you physically cannot go anymore.. STOP. You could be hurting yourself worse than you already are and that will put you a lot further off in the recovering period.

A little saying comes to mind when I feel like I am never going to get back to where I was. "It's not about being the best. It's about being better than you were yesterday." I am definitely better than I was yesterday and I have a feeling that this trend will continue. Until next time.. XOXO
