|Muddy Melissa--- saying hello on day one of my February Challenge!|
It was a gorgeous day outside today. Sure, it's still cold out there--- but this mid 30 degree weather seems downright tropical in comparison to the negative 5 degree weather I was zipping around in last week! The snow on the trails was mostly melted, so it made for easier running--- although I do miss the feeling of breaking in that crisp snow first thing in the morning, leaving a lone set of footprints trailing behind me! There's no better feeling than that for a trail runner like me!
My hip seems to be almost fully rehabbed now; this is yet another long run I've done, without any pain whatsoever. I still have two more physical therapy appointments, and I'm continuing my stretches/exercises, but the hip pain has, for the most part, disappated. Thank goodness! Because I am not letting anything slow me down for my February challenge, for my marathon training, or for anything else--- ever!--- for that matter.
Keep checking back for updates on my 212 miles in February challenge!
Day 1: 212-15=197!
