Now that's what I'm talking about!

I just got home from the gym where I did 30 minutes on the bike and then did 30 min run/walk around the indoor track. It's a 1/16th of a mile around the track (I think) and I did 3 laps running/2 laps walking for 30 minutes. There was no pain, but I could feel it tightening up and walking 2 of the laps seemed to help a lot to loosen it up before running again. I think that's what I'll end up doing for my 2nd Half Marathon on the first. There's no way I'm going to miss out on that thing. I paid for it, I have to go. I may not run it, but I'm going to be there and I'm going to cross the finish.

Today I felt great. It was nice getting a good workout in. The bike wasn't so bad either, once I figured out how to use it right. I even got in some hip exercises on one of those machines. I feel really good and I can't wait to see what the PT says tomorrow. Hopefully she gives me the green light to keep on training. I'm really feeling positive. I think I'm going to be fine for the full marathon in June.
