PM - 4 miles on the treadmill. That was 4 miles of actually running - not walking or anything. Series of flight cancellations this morning to get to Atlanta had me in St. Pete for the day to allow for a run at the gym at lunchtime. (Too hot outside). Coincidentially, Richie showed up and we were able to chat and catch up a bit.
Anyway, I wore the HRM to see how bad my fitness has become in the last 2 weeks and to not run too hard. So, I was able to maintain an 8:15 pace - at a 70%HRR - which is about 45 seconds slower than I would normal run my training runs at with the same HRR --- A little disappointing but not horrible.
The great news of course is that aside from minimal range of motion limitation (I still have a little bit of swelling at the incision sites) and maybe some minimal stability confidence issues - the run was as near to a "normal" run as I have had in quite some time. Very pleased with that. And if I can continue with this good fortune - the fitness levels will return in time too.
