That’s the milestone number I hit on my walk on Friday afternoon!
I have officially ran and walked more than 1000 miles this year!
I knew I was getting close to the 1000 mile mark so before we headed out the door on Friday afternoon the husband reminded me to check and see how far I had left to go to reach 1000 so we could stop and get a photo when I reached it --- I only need 0.77 of a mile to reach the big one thousand. I had hoped I would hit this milestone when I was running but nonetheless it was still a momentous occasion even on a walk. I’ve had this goal to reach 1000 for the last two years and I am so happy I was able to get there despite my current injury.
Once we got back home from our walk I also did a test run for good measure. It went OK but I definitely know I am not ready to make my return to running quite yet. I felt good with some soreness, tightness and muscle twitches --- and, thankfully, no pain during. I hope to return to running before the end of the year :)
