Return to Running.......Attempt #5....on hold

Was planning to take two weeks off and try again - which would have been this last weekend....figured why not make it 3 instead so I'll try next week. I'm kinda reluctant to try as its failed so many times now what I thought I was done with this but I guess I've gotta get out there sometime.

This thing as been very de-masculating.....I used to pride myself at pushing to the limits thru the little and sometimes not so little pains of running and went 3 years solid without more than maybe a week off due to injury. Now going on 9 months off for something that has barely even been very painful (the word "pain" is a gross exageration) for much of any of it (except for a week in April). Now the very slightest hint of maybe kinda sorta something and I'm heading for the couch.....I so much preferred the prior near indestructable self image...

Hey John, sorry to hear you are still waiting but glad to hear you are continuing to feel better.
I am on day 81 so not nearly as long as you so I understand your frustration and hesitancy to return. I have been feeling mostly better and ran .5 miles last Friday, and .8 yesterday. Both times I can't say I felt great. I definitely had some soreness and/or discomfort during the runs but overall they didn't feel really bad. My guide is how I feel afterwards and on that count I have had mixed results. Nothing bad to speak of but I "feel" like I have a bit more soreness for a while and then it goes away within a day. Not sure what to read into this but like you I would rather be safe than sorry.
Keep us posted as to your progress. For me I am going to give it another 2 days off and see how I feel on another short "run".

Eagerly waiting for next post.
