One Mile At A Time

That's right, progress is now being measured one mile at a time!  This past weekend, I crossed the one mile marker.  To me, this is a pretty significant confidence booster.  While progress is slow, it can be measured - from starting at just one minute of running, I am at the point of one mile of running, or something in the neighborhood of 8-ish minutes.  By the end of the run, everything still feels fine.  These are self imposed limits to carefully build back my muscular skeletal system, but I am happy that I am able to progress in such a way.  The good news is that I know I could go out there and just run right now.  The hard part is holding back enough to keep my body in check, but provide enough effort to keep my brain happy.  So far, that plan seems to be working...
