Today was a big day; I RAN!
Two months ago I had an accident and received a traumatic concussion. Not only has it kept me from writing, but I haven’t been able to run. The dizziness and headaches have kept me away from all physical activity actually. I even had to go on light duty at work for a month. It was the worst 1-2 month span that I have had in a while!
Even though I eat right, I gained 5+ pounds during that time. Normally it is super difficult for me to gain weight, this was not the weight I was hoping to gain though.
Yesterday, my wife and I went to Sears just to poke around and see what type of gym equipment they had. We ended up buying a home gym set up and a recumbent bike! What?! It’s not going to be delivered for another two weeks though. But, ya, I’m pretty sure it was my bodies way of saying it’s time.
Later on that day, my brother called and wanted to go to the gym. Now, the universe was intervening! It was time to try something physical and see how my head reacted. Thankfully the only thing sore today is my triceps and back, but that’s from lifting things up and putting them down! YAY!
I wanted to keep the momentum up and decided to go for a short run. It was barely a 5k but the good news is, I felt great. Again, no dizziness and no headaches; that’s a win-win to me! Here’s hoping I can keep it going, I miss it!
