Woohoo!!

Worked out again this morning... but I have to admit, I stretched the doctor's recommendation just a little. I did the treadmill again - at 3.0 mph which never seems like anything, but hey, I'm moving, right?! While I do the treadmill, Elizabeth does the elliptical. We did this for 30mins. THEN we switched!!  Yup, I got on the elliptical for 15mins... woohoo!

I did NOT push it. I was going slow. I kept the ramp down. I held onto the stationary rails (we don't have the moving arms) and I felt it! Boy oh boy, we are dying to get back to running. We keep talking about it. I have my follow-up with the doctor in less than a week. I am wishing, and hoping, and thinking and praying that he will clear me!

I know, I know. it's only been 17days, but I feel perfectly fine. No pain. No digestive issues. No anything!! I am fine... hear that, Doc?? Let me RUN!

I am soo signing up for the Spooner 10K this year. I canNOT wait to complete my first 10K and then I will be conquering the New Bedford Half Marathon. Yes, I might die. BUT a girl needs a goal and 2 chubby chicks can do anything... lmao :)

Hey Tee, glad to see you're almost back in action. Take it slow, tho. Don't push too far, then get sidelined again. We miss you too much already. ;)

Thanks to you and E for starting this challenge... it's FUN!

Thanks Jill! I am trying not to push it, but to be honest... I keep "forgetting" that I have an "injury".

Seriously, I feel much better now than before the surgery. I've done enough stuff that I shouldn't have done that I'm hoping he feels I'm ready to go on Wednesday!
