My dad drove me to Sugarhouse. We agreed that if I stayed on the pavement and ran laps I’d be alright. Then if I didn’t feel great I had my phone and could call him. I was stoked to have more freedom and run in larger/more scenic loops than short laps. Starting out, running felt weird and a little unnatural, my form just felt off. Like my stride was short and not normal, I think because I haven’t run as much lately. But then about a mile into it I got back in the rhythm of my old stride and it felt a lot more natural and smooth. I was surprised, I felt so much better than I was expecting. Especially for how much time I’ve taken off. But also, just in general. I felt a lot lighter and better than I did before my treatments, so that’s encouraging.
Anyways, I did 3 laps. On my second I ran into Patrick and recognized him from his running stride (lol, anyone else notice people’s strides or just me?), we stopped and talked for a minute. It was so good to see him and catch up briefly since high school. We might run together later this week. Anyways, on my last lap, the last half mile my legs started to get tired. They might be sore tomorrow. 4.25 miles, 7:42 average
