One Small Step For Man...Well, That's About It

(as posted on Daily Mile)

What's this? A run? Well, a run-walk, to be precise. It's been five months almost to the day since I last ran. As per my doctor's orders, I alternated one minute of running with one minute of walking, for ten minutes.

  1. Man, I'm out of shape!
  2. When I set my Garmin up to beep every minute, I found that my user profile weight was listed as 12 lbs. lighter than I am now (I've "bulked up" since my abs project).
  3. My heel felt okay, but I still noticed a little soreness. It'll be interesting to see how it feels the next couple of days.

Not sure if I'll attempt another run/walk before I see my doc on Friday. But it was good to get out there and run a few steps!


  1. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Some running is better than none! Congrats and good luck at the doc appointment.

  2. Every little run helps. Glad you could get back after it for a few minutes. If my profile is 12 pounds off it's not a function of muscle, unfortunately.

    Hope all goes well with the doctor Friday.

  3. Woo hoo!!

    Based on my experiences, a little soreness is just because running is a foreign experience. Best wishes for the Dr. appt.

  4. Thanks!
    Adrienne, I've noticed a little soreness come and go during my rehab as my heel has adjusted to the exercises, so hopefully that's all it is.

  5. A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single run/walk step.
