Well, my doctors appointment yesterday went well and I received full approval to start running again!!
So, of course I went out for a quick 2 mile run. I'll admit, it was a bit tough at times. I got a side stitch after THREE QUARTERS of a mile - but that may have been the Wendy's double cheeseburger coming back at me.
Unfortunately, the route that I normally take for my speed work / short runs was right by an elementary school that just happened to be letting out at the time that I was running by. So, I dodged little kids and school buses - and even got told by a 4th or 5th grade little girl that I should put a shirt on.
Also, while I was running back by the school I got told by a group of middle school boys causing trouble at a nearby park that I was quote "looking pretty good". Obviously, they were seeing something that the elementary school girl wasn't.
Note to self: Stop running around 3:30pm. Creepy.
But, I'm running again - and that makes me happy. I'll need to work on my speed and my endurance...and obviously will need to start looking much cooler to 4th and 5th graders. But all of that will come with time.
