Today I ran 5 miles.
5 miles.
Last time I went there was in April.

I did a few 4 milers and I decided it was time to test the machine...and go to 5.
Don't know why that number is like a milestone for me as far as coming back goes.

This last week was pretty good.  No pain in the knee.  I do have stiffness and soreness in my right hip after almost every single run.  I stretch and roll and that helps.  I am going back to PT Tuesday and will ask for advices.  I am now going to go every other week.  Best for my wallet. 😉

I am still running exclusively on my treadmill.  No road yet.
I plug the IPad and go.  I watched season 1 and 2 of Scandal and I loved it.  So good.
I discovered VEVO.  That is pretty cool, watching the music videos instead of just the audio.
The only problem is no Goo Goo Dolls and no Matchbox twenty.  But lots of John Mayer and more importantly Keith !

The fitness is still not back but it is getting better...I am far from where I was before injury.
I did not put any weight so that is good I guess.
I am still taking walking breaks but I continue to increase the running minutes by 1 min every week.
If I have to keep the walking in I am fine with that.
Better that than no running.

I hope that I will continue to make progress.  I am always waiting for the sharp pain to come back...

Last Saturday I went to my second summer concert.
This time it was John Mayer and Phillip Phillips.
It was awesome!
Both really good.  I would go see just Phillip Phillips he is that good.
John Mayer is a guitar God.
He played 22 songs and he sounded great.
He was really humble and gracious to the crowd and the musicians playing with him.
Go see him if you have the chance.

I went with my friend Nicole

Tomorrow is Back to School!!!!! 

We are ready! Got new haircuts and new backpacks, lunch pails and shoes!

I can't believe school starts so early for you! We still have 4 weeks to go, right after Labor Day.

Glad to see you making progress and feeling more and more positive about getting back into running! We still have a few weeks before school starts and need to start getting stuff ready.

Five is a big milestone! And the fitness will come back. I know what you mean about waiting for the pain to return - that was the hardest part for me. So nerve wracking.

That had to be a great feeling! Hopefully all the work and caution you're putting into rehabbing your injury means it will STAY AWAY. Wow, I'm glad we aren't back to school yet! Next week, though. Good bye summer, sigh.
