Recovered

I am feeling pretty much normal today. I have no more pain from the surgery, which is awesome. However I was feeling pretty off this morning, like the fatigue I had been experiencing a few weeks ago. I figure it is either from 3 things because they are the only changes: starting metformin, not exercising or this brand of contacts. I am changing my contacts tomorrow, I am not going to take metformin for a couple days, and I ran today.

For 40 minutes straight.

When I left for the run I planned on running for 20 or 25 minutes. But when I got to that time, I decided to run to a certain point. When I got there, I decided to run for 30 minutes. When that time came around, I decided to just keep going to another certain point. When I got there, I decided I might as well keep running until I hit 40 minutes.

I guess you can say that I am fully recovered from my surgery now! :)

It was wonderful! I can't believe I ran for that long. I have never ran 30 minutes in my life! I think I ran for almost 4 miles. That is more than a 5K. I just ran a 5K, basically. I also walked 20 minutes home, for a total of 60 minutes exercise and 1400 calories burned according to my heart rate monitor.

A few girls from work and I are going to sign up for the Manitoba Marathon relay! It is just over 5 miles to run. After today, I know I can do it!

I LOVE RUNNING!
