Running Post Fibula Stress Fracture

A minor setback paves the way for a major comeback!
I ran my one mile trial mile (Zone 2 - 8:23 pace) to test out my leg after almost 6 weeks of no running. It felt amazing to be running! There was some nagging pain towards the end of the mile, but I should have run at a slower pace. It was hard not getting carried away!
"She was unstoppable not because she didn't have failures or doubts but because she continued on despite them." Reunited and it feels so good! I'm not running fast and I'm not running far! But I am running, and I am free!

So very thankful for this body I am given and everything it does for me!
My first brick in months = 1 hour on the bike + 15 minute easy run. It was glorious! 

"Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up."
Coming back from injury I am only running for 15 minutes and my pace is 2 minutes per mile slower than before, but I am running and I couldn't be happier!

The treadmill is working well for my short easy runs!

But I love to get out to run as much as I can! "When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breath, to think, to enjoy, to love." TO RUN!!!

I am focusing on just running. I'm not worrying about pace, nor speed work, but just being able to run! Making my comeback baby!!
