So, I did it. Finally, yesterday -- about four months post-op, I decided to go on a very slow, very short run with my dog on a very flat course.

I did two painfully slow (10:00/mile) miles and then walked the remaining two miles of the loop.

Today, I'm a little tired and sore, but in a good way...not in an I overdid it way. I am SO, SO, SO happy. I even have enough energy to go riding this afternoon.

It felt so good to lace up those shoes. I darn near cried. :)

That's all. Just had to report.

Slow? 10min mile is slow? :confused0006: lol. I must be a turtle then, my average is about 13min mile. I've never been able to run a full mile at once, I have to walk/jog. But I know what you mean, now that one big eating holiday is done I want to try to get back into some form of exercise. I used to be very active and I felt good then, but over the last year I've really went down hill, then top that off with the TT/RAI. I feel like a blob. It's time to do something, besides sit on my behind.

I've been running a looooooooong time. :) But the one thing I've learned is that it doesn't matter how fast or slow you go, as long as you keep on moving. I'm just noting the time for my own info, because I had very few symptoms of thyroid cancer. But one thing I did notice (and brushed off as age etc) was a sudden increase in my mile time. I'm interested to see if I can get back to my "regular" time soon.

It feels great, doesn't it!!!????


Totally. I had such a runner's high for an hour or so after I finished!!!
