Taking advantage of the balmy 48° weather today, I put on the UA Coldgear and thick shorts, and went for my first run of the year. I needed to test my heel to see how the tendonitis is after months of rest, and I couldn’t wait any longer to get outside and move. I did 4 sets of stretches before, during, and after, and put the icepack on it for a good 15 minutes afterward. So far, so good, but we’ll see how it is later. I’ve gotta get really serious about the daily stretching because I’m sick of not being able to run without hobbling the next day.
…to everyone who gave me a mix of encouragement, reality check, and a kick in the ass during last night’s melodramatic meltdown. It’s much appreciated, and I’m much better now. 🙂
