I know, I know, 22.2 miles might not seem like a lot (especially when I was averaging 50 a week last year), but I am ECSTATIC to be getting in ANY miles, especially pain-free ones, after a month of no running! I want to take it slow, while giving my body (especially my Achilles) time to readjust to running again. I'm planning to keep up the every-other-day routine for at least another week. Although the 6ish miles feels great, I don't think I want to go much further right now. I'd really prefer to run fewer miles and get back into a groove than tackle longer mileage, risk injury and be forced to take time off again. I want to play it smart (even though, deep down, maybe I'm a little bummed because I'm comparing myself to the runner I was a few months back). Here's to enjoying the journey... however far and fast that journey may be!

How were your workouts this past week?
