I RunLong story short I haven't ran in months due to shoulder surgery and it's been killing me! I am used to a routine of every other day. So not to run at all, for months feels like Im shriveling up and slowly dying.
Im post op a little over 10 weeks now...been walking for about a month. I just couldn't sit anymore...but the need to run has been eating at me. Not supposed to run yet but...yesterday I was at the track and the weather was so pretty and warm...I was on my last lap around and I said **** it (in my head), Im jogging. I did!!!! I jogged a lap around the track and it felt so good. Although I am so out of shape, that sucks. The problem though is my shoulder gets irritated when I hang my arm down for a while or if I were to move it back and forth with running, so I just grabbed hold of my shirt as I ran. This bent my arm as if I were still in the sling and it didn't bother me. Maybe I looked odd, but I didn't care! Felt good to do a little. Can't wait for the upcoming months and warmer weather. I am happiest when I run.
