This afternoon, the temps were about 54F. So, I put on my running SHORTS! and strapped Amanda into the jogging stroller. Alex hopped on his bike, and I got out the nicer leash for Mack to come along. And then, we ran (Alex biked) for just over a mile, turned around, and ran back. It was at about a 9:30 pace, which is pretty slow for me. My legs are already a little sore. Oh yeah, that is the FIRST time I have been running since my concussion in early January.
The past two weeks have been significant improvements for me. While yesterday, I did come home from work with a migraine bad enough I needed to take some meds and head to bed, that was the first time I had to nap in over a week. In fact, I have only taken meds for a headache about 2 times in the past 2 weeks.
While I know I am not back to 100% and I don’t intend to rush things, it is nice to finally feel like I am making progress. I am also happy to report that I no longer need the reading glasses prescribed by the optometrist.
