It was nothing less than wonderful and amazing! Last Friday this was me:
This morning I went in for my one week appointment and after my eyes were checked (20/20 in both eyes!!) and the technical questions were answered I asked the one I'd been dying to ask since I stepped into the office, "Can I run again?" YES!!! His answer was longer and more detailed than just "yes," but the it was the word I wanted to hear. I cannot rub my eyes and should probably stay indoors (it's been cold here).
I was home less than 10 minutes and I was on my treadmill for a v.e.r.y. .s.l.o.w. 2 miler. I don't care how slow or short my run was, it was so great to be back running. I plan to take it easy this week and go on a lot of short, slow runs on the treadmill. I have no doubt I'll love every step I take.
Who knew a week would feel so long and make a simple and short run so amazing?
