baby steps ...

Shhh! Don't tell anyone, but I kind of worked out yesterday.

I know what you're thinking, "TMB, could you be more of a dumba**?"

And the answer is yes. Yes, I could.

Seriously. It's not like I put on a wicked cute skirt and sock combo and hit the track for some speed work. And, although I did break a sweat, it was mainly due to the 80 degree temperatures and not my intensity. I promise, I DID NOT PUSH IT.

But I did WALK two miles. In 35 minutes. (Obviously, I breaking into the speed-walking circuit.)

And I *might* have ran 100 feet. In the pouring rain. From my doctor's office to my car. Only 5180 feet more and I'll be at a mile. (Note: My shoulder DID NOT HURT.)

I'm calling it a success. And maybe after my follow-up appointment tomorrow, I'll jump on my bike trainer. Just because I can.

It's all about baby steps, people. Baby steps ...

It's going to keep getting better from here on out. Glad the surgery went well!

Yes... baby steps please... thinking first steps, not "cruising" baby steps.

Praying for continued healing!

Walking never hurt anyone right?

Sending healing thoughts your way! Glad you were able to expel some energy though - I totally get how going from 60 to 0 would make you have a need to get out!

Hey, you don't know me, but I just voted for you! I have recently added you to my blog roll. I just started a blog about a month or so ago and was wondering if you could check it out and add it to your blogroll if you like it? The address is www.runlearnrepeat.com. (I think this comment will bring you to my family blog, but there is a link to my running blog on there.) Thanks!
