2 More Miles Down

After work, I headed straight to the gym, excited to see how far my knee would allow me to run. I managed to get 2 miles out of this old thing. If I keep progressing like this, I will be back on track in no time. I'm hoping to be able to progress be at least 1/2 mile each day.

I know I should be excited to see my progress, but I just keep thinking about how many miles I was running before all this happened. I can't wait to get out on the road and test out my new reflective gear I got for (an early) x-mas. I don't want to run on the road until I can run some decent miles (and not have to walk back).

Here are my legs after running tonight. Not sure why I took this picture, but here's the gear I wore to the gym. I have my Mizuno shoes, Addias socks, ace brace, Nike capris and an off brand (Old Navy) tank.

What is your favorite piece of running gear? Mine is my mp3 player, can't leave the house without it.


  1. mine too..it makes my running a complete experience.

  2. My favorite piece of running gear is my leash that has Boomer on the other end of it. ;)

  3. I just got a pair of Mizuno running shoes and I love love love them! Never running in Nike again. Sorry Nike.

  4. I think I have those same capris! I would like to say my Garmin is my most important item... but I certainly couldn't run without my shoes! I've been in the same pair (well, samy TYPE) for years!

  5. I'm with Marlene - garmin and Mizunos! I just got my first pair of Capri tights - love them.

  6. I'm sorry about your knee. I know it's so frustrating for you.
    My favorite piece of running gear is my Nike cold weather pants. They feel so good, and a friend of mine said they look "hot" on me. ;)
