I attempted my first post-Ragnar run on Saturday. I was invited to do an 8 mile trail run with a fun group of gals. I knew my body wasn't totally recovered (still had calf pain and knee pain), but I have a really hard time missing out on fun things, so I went. 1 mile in I knew my body wasn't ready. My tendinitis in my knee was really bothering me. I slowed it way up and ended up doing a walk/jog. Jocelyn stayed with me, but we sent the group on. It was quite frustrating for me at first, but I focused on what my body has let me do over the past year instead of what it wasn't letting me do in that moment. It was a beautiful morning and I really want to do this run again when I'm feeling better.
If you can't run, you can at least take "running" pictures.
