Just What I've Been Waiting For!

First easy & slow 10km entirely on road since the arthroscopy 4.5 weeks ago. Started at the school and stayed around that area for a while to see what might happen. No pain at all! Off down Bong Bong Road, Old South Road and Diamond Fields Road until I'd reached 5km without any trouble at all. I was SO pleased!
Both out and back had some hills and I didn't falter on any of them! Well, maybe on one, though I didn't know it, when a truck drove past and the driver smiled and called out something which I couldn't hear; nevertheless I returned his wave and smile. Would you believe the next thing? As I came up the last hill in Bong Bong Road, there he was standing outside his property with a big glass of cold water for me! What a lovely thing to do! So maybe I wasn't looking as fabulous as I'd thought!
AHR 122 (77%); MHR 136 (86%)
I'll stay with this slow and easy running each day for the rest of the month, keeping 2 days each week for pool running as cross training. Phew! How good is it to get to go again. January should see the return to my usual full program and a few smackdowns with Ewen that he doesn't even know about yet!
