Today I went for the first

1/6/10 — Today I went for the first hard run since my shoulder surgery on October 26. After a morning of working at my desk it felt especially good to move. By the third mile, however, it didn’t feel so good any more. Still, I kept at it, and pushed through. Hopefully I won’t pay the price this evening. Regardless, I’m on the mend, and excited to be getting back to my old self. This weekend I’m even going to try my favorite 10 mile loop out to Bald Hill and back. I’m sure I’ll be slow, but that’s okay. I’ll approach it the same way I do my writing — one step at a time, focus on the process, and enjoy the experience, even when it’s hard.
