Road Warrior — Testing My Knee With A Short Run

My knee is feeling great and I took it out for a spin today with a 1.5 mile run. I'm confident I can restart my 5K training in January.

My knee is feeling great and I took it out for a spin today with a 1.5 mile run. I’m confident I can restart my 5K training in January.

For some reason, during my walk, I got the urge to test my knee and try some running. I thought I’d just run for about 20 yards and start walking again. Turns out I switched back to walking 1.5 miles later. My knee felt great. But I was shocked that I could go that far.

Before the injury the furthest I ran was a little less than a mile. I haven’t run for about 2 months. My plan is to resume my 5K training in January – and that is still the plan. But I thought I’d start at the beginning to ease back into my 5K training. Turns out, my cycling and walks are keeping my cardio in check. While I still intend to ease back into my training, it’s comforting to know I don’t have to start at square one.
