Feels like home!

After 4 weeks of being out of commission from most everything, including exercise of any kind, I finally went for a 2 mile walk last night with Chris!

We were getting ready to go and I said " let me grab my shoes". I slipped them on my feet, stood up and said "oh, that feels good, feels like home" :)

The air is finally cooler here and it felt so good to be back out there! I came home just as I left, tired..but happy to have done it. This morning after teaching my class, two of the ladies from the group walked 2 more miles with me.
Back at home in my running shoes....

Yipppeeee for you! I, also, put on my shoes and attempted a light run this evening...only 3 blocks worth as I have been fighting planter fascitis...tried hard to ignore the pain and concentrate on the freedom.
Keep on walking girl friend!

That's the way. Start out walking and you will be running soon.

I am also struggling back from inactivity ... I feel like I am always starting over. Guess I should be glad that I am always starting ....

So glad you are feeling better Elayne. Walking is a great start, (actually for me thats the end)My personal goal is to get back on my bike again, maybe this weekend
