Last night, my PT cleared me to start the “Return to Running” program. I had been doing pain-free powerwalking (30-50 minutes at a time). I was so excited to run that I didn’t mind getting up early today! Week 1 Day 1 of the R2R program was 6 sets of 4.5 minutes of walking and 30 seconds of running. Newsflash: 30 seconds goes by fast! Haha.


I was trying to get my PT to say I could also return to other activities, but he said for now to follow the R2R program, keep doing my glute exercises and I can keep swimming and biking. What I really wanted him to say was that I could start taking dance classes again, but one thing at a time. For now, I’ll have to stick to spontanenous dance parties when I find myself alone in the fitness center.


Also, I think when you’re over 30, BYOB means different things to different people.
