It’s hard to believe, but it’s been more than six months since my knee surgery in February. I feel overwhelmingly “back to normal,” but there are lingering reminders that this surgery, in particular, left its mark – physically and mentally.
Since returning to the gym at the beginning of May, I’ve been meaning to write more here about how I’ve been progressing in my training since coming back from knee surgery in February. But then May was absolute chaos with looking for a new job, traveling for work, traveling for advocacy, and just trying to get back into my training routine. And while I’d still like to resurrect my training journals at some point, lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my training via social media, and I decided that tackling some of those is as good a start as any.
When I went back on Methotrexate in April, one of the first things I did was to look at my calendar for upcoming races that I was signed up for. As part of my goals for the new year, I committed to myself that I would run 3 races this year: mud runs, fun runs, obstacle races – basically whatever me and my bionic hips could manage. I kicked off my race season in April with Muckfest MS and last Sunday I rocked The Color Run.
