Today was a productive day so far. I finished up my time in my main area that I have been orienting with some sweet and sour chicken and deliciously homemade strawberry shortcake (thanks, Alyssa!!). I look forward to starting on the unit where I will be working, with the people I will be working with, but you all know that I’m nervous about it too. Not anxious, just new kid jitters. The usual.
I felt motivated to move around today because it was such a beautiful day and because I was able to walk the path with The Joel yesterday when we got home. I knew that I needed to ease myself into “running” again (if you can even call what I do running) so that’s just what I did. I didn’t have any kind of plan, I just knew that I would be walking a majority of the slightly over 2 miles I had planned. I ended up walking out to the end of the path, jogging back to my starting point, walking in the other direction, and then jogging in some straight aways on the way back home. It felt weird! My legs are freaking heavy. I can’t believe I’ve gone so long without running, but I felt okay because I have been doing other active things instead of it these past few weeks.
I was also motivated to close out my goal on my fitbit. Don’t know what a fitbit is? I’ll enlighten you sometime this week. Just know that I’m obsessed with it and it has kind of taken over my life. I’m pretty sure that I’m 40% robot at this point because of it.
I also made a return to the foam roller!! I figured since I’m reintroducing my body to running, I may as well start off by foam rolling now instead of waiting for problems to creep up and make me miserable later. I’m so proactive I can’t stand it.
One thought on “Returns”
Good luck with getting your running legs back. I know the feeling. I am a little worried about my race next weekend. Should be interesting since I haven’t been running much. I guess you have got to start somewhere though, right?
