Ah, the first run back. It hurt like hell and I haven’t stopped coughing since I finished it, but it’s done.
I was supposed to do a ladder speedwork workout, but that didn’t make sense for a few reasons. It was my first training run. It was icy and the sidewalks were a mess. I hadn’t ran in forever. So I decided to try to be as speedy as possible without compromising my health or falling on my face. I stuck to downtown Toronto solely because I knew the sidewalks would be in okay condition.
Overall, it wasn’t too bad. My achilles took turns aching, all my muscles felt tight and my right hip was twingy. But, hey, it’s the first run back. I’ll get in a groove soon enough.
