And I Would (Run) 500 Miles…

Quick update:  I did a short 1.6 mile Patterson Park loop last night to test out the toe, and it appears that I’m back in business. And that loop put me over 500 miles run for the year!  Which reminded me of this song:

Remember that one?  “But I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more…”

Well, I don’t think I’m going to hit “500 more” in 2011, as I had originally set out to do, but I’m just ecstatic to be out there again.  I’m still being careful, but I did my normal four mile run today with no problem.  I still have a little stiffness in the toe, but no pain at all.

Yay! Hope everyone is having a good week.

Miles run since last post: 5.7; total miles for the year: 504.1.

    Glad you were able to do work out the little toe on a 4 mile run! I wasn’t familiar with the song, but listened to the video and I liked it…catchy. 500 miles is amazing to me in itself. I’m glad when I can get in 1 1/2 mile walk everyday!Goals are a great thing to have, but the journey toward the goal is the big prize! Keep your eye on the prize and all your accomplishments. They are huge!! Proud of you!

    Glad to hear the toe is feeling better. Take good care of yourself. Lots of love!
